More Credit Card Parking Meters Being Installed This Fall
The City of Columbus Department of Public Service is installing another phase of upgraded parking meters that will accept credit and debit cards, starting on Wednesday, September 18th. Once complete by the end of December, all 4,800 parking meters in Columbus will accept credit and debit cards in addition to coins.
The meters that will be upgraded are located in the Discovery District around the campuses of CCAD and CCSC, as well as portions of the Hilltop neighborhood. Additionally, some existing credit card meters around The North Market, Short North and Arena District will be upgraded to a newer model that features larger screens.
In addition to credit cards, these meters also accept pre-paid parking cards, sold by the city of Columbus in two locations: 50 West Gay Street and 2700 Impound Lot Road.
