WEST NEW YORK PARKING AUTHORITY ANNOUNCES TOWN-WIDE SMART METER INSTALLATION AND MOBILE PAYMENT OPTIONS
New meters integrate with smart devices to create a more convenient modern parking experience.

WEST NEW YORK, N.J. – The West New York Parking Authority (WNYPA) announced today that the agency will be replacing the town’s traditional, coin-operated parking meters with smart parking meters this Spring. Weather permitting, the installation process will be completed by the end of April 2019. Along with these new meters, residents will also be able to pay for parking town-wide with mobile devices via the Parkmobile app.

WNYPA leadership decided to introduce smart parking to the town after a successful test pilot program earlier this year. A social media survey further revealed that the majority of participants preferred using the digital meters over traditional ones. The executive board believes that these smart meters will align West New York with its residents and visitors’ modern lifestyle needs.

“Providing our customers with more payment options is our primary goal,” said Amiris Perez, WNYPA Executive Director. “Motorists will be able to choose between mobile, card, or cash payments. We hope these smart meters will better meet community needs as we continuously work to improve parking conditions throughout the town.”

West New York residents are advised to look out for further updates regarding this announcement. Those with questions, comments, or concerns regarding these changes are advised to visit www.wnyparkingauthority.org/contact, email info@wnypanj.com, or call (201) 295-1575 for more information.

Very nice. How about paving the parking lots and avoiding a lawsuit before beautifying Bergenline Avenue. The parking lot on 63rd Street and Bergenline Avenue is a disgrace and poses a danger to pedestrians. Thank you.
