From the official city blog. I look forward to what Richmonders will find to complain about on this particular change.
On Monday, April 23 motorists parking in the select areas of Richmond’s downtown Central Business District will no longer pay at individual parking meters. Instead they will be required to use pay stations, which will be located mid-block along certain streets. The parking meters currently in place will be removed.
The pay stations will accept credit cards, debit cards, cash and coins. The machines will dispense a receipt that must be placed in the windshield as verification that cars are parked legally.
Signs will be in place notifying drivers of the pay stations. In addition, parking enforcement officers will be available in the areas where the pay stations are located to assist those who need help or have questions.
The locations for the pay stations are:
800 block of East Marshall Street (south side)
400 block of North 9th Street (east side)
500 block of North 9th Street (west side)
1100 block of East Main Street (south side)
900 Block of West Broad Street (south side)
The pay stations are being provided by Standard Parking Corporation, which is the company contracted with the City to provide parking enforcement.
