CU Testing Pay-by-Phone Parking Spots

By  | 

Boulder, Colo. (AP) Need to pay for parking but don’t have any change? Forty parking spots at the University of Colorado now allow drivers to phone it in.

As part of a 90-day trial through June, coin-operated parking meters at certain spots have been replaced by machines that accept cash and credit cards.

For users who have set up an account through Verrus Mobile Technologies' web site, payments also can be phoned in and billed to a credit or debit card.

Instead of rushing out to feed an expired meter, a driver can call to add parking time. The driver gets a text message when the meter is about to run out.
