NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Tired of running back to your parking spot to put money in the meter? Well, there’s an app for that.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg unveiled a pilot program Tuesday that will allow drivers to add parking time remotely by using a smartphone app, the internet or by telephone.
Motorists will also receive a text message or email alerting them their time is about to expire. They will then be able to purchase additional time and extend their parking periods.
