New Parking Meters To Be Installed in Downtown Columbia
COLUMBIA - Starting next Monday, Feb. 13, downtown Columbia patrons are going to have two additional payment options when parking their cars. Two parking meters will accept payment by credit card and cell phone, as well as coins and the EZ Park Card.
The meters will be utilized for multiple parking spots, and will be placed on Ninth Street between Broadway and Locust streets.
In addition, IPS Group Inc. is expected to install similar parking systems for single spots on Ninth Street between Locust and University streets by the end of February.
Both the multi-spot and single-spot parking meters are going through a trial period of 90 days.
