Parking Meter

DALLAS (AP) - Drivers lacking cash but with phones have more options for high-tech parking meters in Dallas.

City officials and PayByPhone Technologies on Friday announced drivers can pay for metered parking with a credit or debit card using a smartphone app or by calling a toll-free number.

PayByPhone can also send users a text message five minutes before their meter expires with the option to pay for more time.

City parking enforcement manager Paul Curington says it’s a simple way to add parking time from wherever you are without worrying about getting a ticket.

A free PayByPhone account can be set up using a smartphone app.

Drivers can also call 1-888-680-7275 to set up an account using a credit or debit card. A 35-cent convenience fee applies per transaction.
