The city’s parking authority is replacing its kiosks, and drivers will now have input into how they pay for their parking. The authority has unveiled two new options — an old school-looking meter that takes coins and credit cards but is mobile-friendly, and an upgraded kiosk that runs off solar energy but is faster than the current machines. These kiosks also work with mobile devices..


The kiosks mirror the style offered in West Hartford, where motorists enter their license plates into the machine when paying for parking. This eliminates the need for a paper sticker, Hartford Parking Authority CEO Eric Boone said.

Boone said the authority dismisses 100 to 150 parking citations a month because drivers misplace their stickers but are later able to produce them.

The public is invited to share their preference by filling out a survey on the authority’s website,, or by visiting the group’s Facebook page.
