City of Trenton is Modernizing its Parking System

TRENTON, N.J. – The City of Trenton on Thursday began exciting changes to its parking system. All of the City’s aging parking meters will be replaced over the coming months with new parking technology, providing motorists with additional payment methods.

“This is something we’ve been trying to do in the Capital City for a long time, and we anticipate that the new parking system will have a very positive impact on downtown Trenton,” said Mayor Reed Gusciora.  “Paying for parking will be very convenient, and the data we collect will let us create better parking policies to make finding a parking space much easier.”

Easy-to-use solar powered parking kiosks will be installed on the majority of blocks and in downtown parking lots. The pay stations feature a 7” full color display screen that walks users step by step through the transaction. Coins, bills, credit cards, and debit cards will be accepted at all pay stations. Users will get a receipt at the end of the transaction and place it on their dashboard for enforcement officers.

On blocks that do not have parking pay stations, drivers will find credit card enabled single or dual space parking meters.

All of the new parking pay stations and meters communicate transactions and alerts in real-time to a back-end system, allowing City staff to monitor parking activity and take a proactive approach to maintenance.

Installation of the new pay stations began on May 23. The new system is provided by Moorestown, NJ based Flowbird. The company supplies parking systems to major cities across the country including Boston, Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia.
