New parking meters will accept credit cards in the City of Walnut Creek

Parking in Walnut Creek is about to get easier with new meters that accept credit cards. More than 1,000 of the meters will be installed throughout the downtown in early April. The easy-to-use meters will accept coins or credit cards, said Matt Huffaker, Assistant to the City Manager.
The new meters communicate wirelessly, accept secure credit card payments and allow the City to monitor each meters status to ensure they are functioning properly.
There will be no paper receipts and no need to remember space numbers. Patrons will simply park, slide their card into the meter and be on their way. Installing state-of-the-art parking meters is just the first step towards making parking easier to find and easier to pay for in Walnut Creek, said Huffaker.
In addition to the new meters, other plans in the works include clearer parking signage and using technology to provide real-time (on- and off-street) parking availability information via smart phones and the Internet.
