URBANA - Urbana officials say citizens now have a new, convenient way to pay for parking throughout the city.
City officials say they have adopted the MobileMeter app as a method of payment for parking meters at several locations throughout Urbana. Instead of having to carry around change to pay for parking, citizens will have the option to pay via credit card through their smartphone or tablet.
Users of the MobileMeter app will also be able to extend their parking remotely, keep track of available time, and receive reminder notifications before the meter is set to expire.
The MobileMeter app is free, and can be downloaded from the iPhone App Store or Android Google Play. Additionally, users can also register for the app by visiting the MobileMeter website.
