City Launches Pay by Phone Parking Meters
Mayor Edwin M. Lee today joined the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) to launch the PayByPhone parking payment service in San Francisco that allows drivers to pay for parking at meters with their cell phone. The rollout began with parking meters in the Castro neighborhood and will continue Citywide to other neighborhoods by Spring 2012.
PayByPhone will allow customers to pay for parking at meters by cell phone, receive a reminder text when time is almost up, add time without returning to the meter and receive receipts via e-mail. Read more.
