BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- The
Township of Bloomfield is moving forward with installing addition smart pay
parking stations downtown in the coming weeks. This will bring the total number
of pay stations up to 14 in the downtown area. These machines are supplied by
Last May, the Township agreed to do
a 90-day trial period with both Parkeon, and the IPS Group, Inc. Both proved
very successful in enforcing parking and saving time for parking enforcement
“The Township Council and I have
been committed to modernizing our outdated parking enforcement system and
consolidate services. Last year, we agreed to a trial period to see if this
technology would help us save resources, and were thrilled with the results.
This pay-by-plate technology that is used in Hoboken and other nearby cities
has proven to save time and resources, which in turn save taxpayers’ dollars,” said
Mayor Michael Venezia. “These new pay stations are solar powered, real-time
reporting machines that improve our parking technology.”
Parkeon uses pay-by-plate
technology to keep parking enforcement officers aware of the time remaining on
all operating machines. All pay stations will now work with park mobile and
accept three methods of payment (coin, cards, bills). Locations of these machines
are Glenwood Ave, Washington Street, Lackawanna (train stations side), Farrand
Annex Lot, Royal Theater lots, Conger Street Lot, Municipal Lot. All of these
spaces will be 2 hour max parking time. Lackawanna St and Royal theater lots
will still be 12 hour parking. These systems can be remotely controlled. All
meters will be removed where pay stations have been installed.
Parkeon systems are in place in
over 3,500 cities in 55 countries. This system has proven to increase township
revenue by 20% - 30%, using technology to keep parking enforcement officers
aware of the time left on every pay station, remotely. This video explains how to use
Parkeon pay stations.
