Pay-by-Phone parking meters coming to the entire district
The District has been testing pay-by-phone parking meters in D.C., albiet not in our neighborhood. However, WeLoveDC now reports that they are rolling the service out to all of the District by this summer.
Here is how it works: You pull into the spot, then call in or use a mobile app to enter the meter number. Your credit card is charged and you're off to your destination. You get a text 15 minutes before the meter expires.
Presumably, you can add money to the meter even after you leave it; meaning less over-paying for parking.
Hopefully one day they will be able to tell us via our mobile phones where there is free parking - that would be a life-changer.
