Philadelphia Parking Authority Offers New Pay Card

People in Philadelphia will soon be able to use a card to pay for transportation needs ranging from parking meters to garages to cab rides.
The Philadelphia Parking Authority already has smart cards for all parking meters in town. Next year, the authority and a local firm called OmPay will offer a card for a wider range of transportation needs.

The Parking Authoritys Rick Dickson says commuters and visitors alike will be able to use the super smart card to park at a meter on the street, park at a garage for, say, an evening dinner, or take a cab to the theater.

If you exceed the dollar value of the card, it will charge the difference to your credit card.
Officials with the Parking Authority are also talking to SEPTA and PATCO, the regional transit agencies on the Pennsylvania and New Jersey sides of the Delaware River, about joining the smart card project.
