With the app, Passport Parking, smart phone users will be able to pay for their meter remotely and be reminded of when their time is set to expire and where the parked.
The multi-space kiosks work similarly to the kiosks in the Racehorse Alley parking garage. All visitors will need to know is their license plate number.
While all parking options still cost the same as they did before, the parking meters and kiosks require a one dollar minimum for credit card users and have a maximum of two hours.
Richard Miller, Gettysburg Borough Parking Manager, said, "We've been getting great feedback so far and it's not as complicated [for visitors] as we thought it might be."
The new smart meters and kiosks will give the Borough of Gettysburg the ability to efficiently track valuable data like occupancy, time of day, average pay, etc.
The addition of the new smart meters and kiosks is just a small part of a larger plan to revitalize Baltimore Street. You can read the full master plan here.
