Evaluation of new parking meters is underway

The City of St. Louis Treasurer’s Office has started a six month on-street parking field test evaluation to assess parking meter technology. The evaluation is part of an ongoing effort to modernize operations.
The goal is to provide St. Louis with a cost-effective, on-street parking system that allows people to use cash, credit cards and mobile phones to pay for parking.
Meters developed by four companies were selected to participate in the field test.  The test meters are located on 10th Street between Chestnut and Washington Avenue and at the corner of Broadway and Pine in downtown St. Louis.  
There are two additional sites in the Central West End. One is at Maryland and Euclid and the other at Laclede and Euclid.  
The Treasurer’s Office will be asking for public input during the field test evaluation. Based upon the results of the trial, the office may decide to proceed with an offer to one or more companies to furnish and potentially install units on a long-term basis throughout the city.
The public is invited to give feedback by taking a survey on the Treasurer’s Office website: http://www.stlouis-mo.gov/government/departments/treasurer/. 
In addition, the Treasurer’s Office has formed a Citizens Advisory Committee that will also provide feedback on parking improvements in the city.
