All parking meters located in the City of Birmingham offer payment by credit card. Smart meters and vehicle detection sensors are installed at every meter space. If you are a traditionalist and wish to continue to pay with coins - fear not! The new parking meters will still have a coin slot for payment using nickels, dimes or quarters!
If you are "tech savvy" and excited about the ability to pay by credit card, then you will be thrilled to learn the City of Birmingham absorbs the processing costs associated with use of credit cards. That's right! Parking rates are the same regardless of payment type - coin or credit card. The smart meters accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.
Prefer to pay using Parkmobile? Another great option! The smart meters reflect Parkmobile payments ON THE METER and on your mobile phone.
The vehicle detection sensors allow parking patrons to utilize mobile phones, computers or vehicle apps to locate convenient parking close to Birmingham destinations for business, shopping, dining or recreation.
