“Smart” Parking Meters Installed in Silver Spring

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) Parking Management Division  completed the replacement of more than 1,100 on-street parking meters in Silver Spring with new "smart" parking meter heads that expand payment options. The smart meters also use a solar-powered battery system, have a highly visible display, and provide real-time communication capabilities to identify broken meters and instantly process credit card transactions. Last year, MCDOT replaced over 700 of Bethesda’s on-street meters.
