Pay-by-phone parking tested in D.C.

By Mike McPhate

District transportation officials say they will be testing new ways to pay for parking beginning Monday in select areas.

Pay-by-phone, pay-by-space and pay-by-plates are some of the methods that will be tested. Transportation officials say companies involved in the pilot programs will have staff on location to help drivers use the new parking systems.

Meters with a pay-by-phone option will be in the 900 through 1200 blocks of Independence Ave. SW, and pay-by-space meters will be installed in the Friendship Heights area. Pay-by-phone will also be tested on about 1,000 spaces in Foggy Bottom, on Reservoir Road in Georgetown, and around Nationals Park. And pay-by-license plate will be tested in the 1300 block of U Street, NW.

Before DC comes up with a new system to pay, why don't they make the one which is in place now work first so we don't have multiple systems which will not work. I never got my credit card to work on the new print a ticket parking meter.
