Mobile Payment For Parking Meters

From Sun Coral Gables tries pay-by-cell parking technology .

Drivers lacking coins now may use cell phones to feed parking meters in Coral Gables, purportedly the first city in the country to offer such a service.

The automated system allows drivers who subscribe to simply dial in from their cell phone, punch in the number assigned to their parking spot, and the required costs plus a 25-cent usage fee will be billed to their credit card. When leaving, subscribers call back and end the billing cycle.

PayMint, the Toronto-based company that offers the service, e-mails users copies of their transactions, plus allows subscribers to track their usage online
