A New Way to Pay For Parking in Albany Coming Monday
Meter parking flat out sucks, in many parts of Albany at least during the day there is no way around it. Thankfully a new way to deal with it is coming Monday.
I mean I suppose any way really does beat the old way of having to make sure you have quarters if you plan on parking in downtown Albany. At least now there is a system that accepts bills. Monday though will be an unveil of a completely new way to pay for parking. A way that will allow you to skip the meter. Or so it seems.
According to the Times Union the City of Albany and the Albany Parking Authority will unveil a new ParkAlbany App Monday in a press conference held on State Street at 11 a.m. Sadly, if its a good way to avoid meters the only area of downtown it may be used is on State Street. That is a test area for the App.
If you plan on being in that area for something in the near future the app is free in your app store.
