Alexandria meters may take credit cards
It will still cost you more to park in Old Town, Alexandria, but if you run out of quarters at least you won't be out of luck.
Alexandria City officials are poised to replace Old Town's more than 1,000 coin operated, single-space meters with 125 multi-space, credit card capable parking meters, The Washington Examiner reports.
The council earlier this year approved a meter rate increase, raising the per-hour charge from $1 to $1.75. The new rate is comparable to parking charges in Georgetown, parts of Arlington County and other local shopping and dining hot spots. But Old Town is one of the few spots that still requires coins to pay for parking.
