The new smart parking meters are now installed in the Village of Scarsdale’s Village Center as part of a Pilot Program. Residents and visitors have the opportunity to test four different meters as part of the Village’s effort to examine user preferences and meter equipment performance prior to replacing. The information garnered during the pilot period will aid the Village in selecting the parking meter that best meets the needs of residents and visitors frequenting the Village Center.
The pilot program is designed to give the consumer an opportunity to use multi space and smart single space meters, both of which provide various parking payment options.
The new meters will accept quarters as well as credit cards. They can also communicate seamlessly with smartphone parking payment apps, although the use of phone apps will not be part of the meter test period as we want parkers to experience using meters during the test period. In addition to providing consumers with more convenient ways to pay, new parking meter technology will allow the Village to examine detailed parking data to better manage available resources.
Each test meter style will have a color-coded marker. If you would like to rate these meters you may call 800-410-7120 or go online and take the survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/scarsdale-metertest this information is also posted on the meter.

The new meters are located in the Village Center bordered on Popham Road, Chase Road, Spencer Place and East Parkway. The pilot program officially commenced on October 3, 2017 and will continue thru December 2017.
