Smart Meters Now In Bethesda, MD
New Single Space Parking Meters that accept coins, credit cards and pay by cell are being installed in Bethesda.
The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) Division of Parking is installing 840 on-street parking meters in Bethesda, expanding payment options for parking customers. Customers will still be able to pay for parking using coins or pay-by-cell phone, but customers will now also be able to use credit cards. The changeover is expected to take about two weeks.
Some Primary Features of the Smart Meter Include:
Easy to Use Smart Meters:
CASH KEY Users:
Cash keys will no longer be accepted by the smart meters, but will continue to be an option in parking lots and garages that currently accept them. Drivers who will no longer need cash keys will receive in trade a special value card equivalent to the cash key’s loaded value plus the original deposit ($15.00). The value cards can be used like a credit card in the smart meters until their value is zeroed out. Beginning the week of February 24, customers can exchange their cash key for the value card at the Bethesda Parking Sales Store at 4720 Cheltenham Drive, Bethesda, Maryland.
