County Conducts Parking Test in Bethesda; Offers Residents the Option to Pay by Cell Phone at 1,200 Meters

Ever pull into a parking space only to be out of exact change or without a Cash Key? If so, the County’s Department of Transportation, Division of Parking’s test of the “pay-by-cell phone” concept in Bethesda may be the answer. About 1,200 parking meters at Lot 31, Garage 57 and some adjacent streets are temporarily designated with stickers that indicate they accept payment by cell phone and list the instructions.
The test will be conducted until April 4, at which time the meters will no longer accept cell phone payments. The County will then evaluate the success of the test and determine whether to issue bids for the service on a wider scale. The decision to go ahead with the project is also dependent on whether the pay by cell phone project is approved in the FY2011 budget.
More information is available on Parking’s website.
