Credit Card Parking Meters Coming to Easton

City will install 38 new parking meters that take credit cards near the Northampton County Government Center next week.

The days of hunting for quarters at the parking meters near the Northampton County Government Center could be coming to an end.

Easton police say they'll oversee the installation of 38 new meters that accept credit cards on Monday, Nov. 12.

The city will put the meters along Seventh Street between Washington and Walnut streets, as well as along Washington Street outside the courthouse.

The meters will cost $1 per hour, and require a $1 minimum purchase when you're using a credit card. (If you want to use quarters, the meters accept them as well, charging 25 cents for every 15 minutes.)

Hours on the meters will remain the same: 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, with a 10-hour limit.

Police want to know what residents think of the meters.

To give your feedback, contact Lt. Matthew Lohenitz at 610-250-6664, or mlohenitz@easton-pa.gov.

The courthouse meters are being installed for a 90-day trial. The city is looking to eventually install new meters all over downtown.
