Missoula Reviews Credit Card, Mobile Parking Pay Options

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

The streets of Missoula could have new meter technology installed to make parking easier and faster for drivers.

The Missoula Parking Commission is working with two consultants to improve parking as part of the Downtown Master Plan.

Employees at the commission said the new technology will include different payment options at meters, like using a credit card instead of just coins.

They said they're also looking at a feature that allows drivers to pay through an app on a mobile device.

Anne Guest, Director of the Missoula Parking Commission, said, "There are so many advantages to the new technology and it's a matter of customizing it to meet the needs of your community."

The parking commission hasn't determined which meter options are best for Missoula, so it's still unclear how much the upgrade will cost.
