City of  Delray Beach Implements New Smart Meters  

DELRAY BEACH, FL, June 13, 2017 – Visitors to the City of Delray Beach parking garages who have previously needed cash to park, will find new methods of payment available for parking. New smart meters have been installed on each level of the garages for those who wish to have a receipt for parking.  Additionally, the pay-by-phone/app service, Park Mobile, will allow drivers to pay for parking without visiting the meter or having to hand cash to an attendant.

The City charges a flat $5 fee from 4 p.m. until midnight, Thursday through Saturday for parking in both the Old School Square and the Federspiel garages in the downtown area. In the past, an attendant has been on duty at the entrance of the garages to collect cash upon entry to the parking garage.

With the installation of the smart meters in the parking garages, drivers are able to park first and then visit the smart meter to pay for parking.  Ambassadors from the City’s parking management contract firm, Lanier, will be on hand in both garages to assist patrons with this process.

Patrons who already have the Park Mobile application downloaded onto their smartphones will receive a prompt upon entering the garage inviting them to pay for parking using the phone app. The Park Mobile app will allow patrons to pay using their license plate number and will save a trip to the meter.

Parking for persons who have disabled parking permits will be free throughout the City, whether the visitor chooses to park on the street, in a surface parking lot or in one of our parking garages.

The Old School Square Parking Garage includes more than 500 parking spaces and is centrally located at 95 NE 1st Avenue. The Robert Federspiel Parking Garage is located at 22 SE 1st Avenue and has just over 200 parking spaces. Both are conveniently located in the vicinity of Atlantic Avenue and the downtown Delray Beach restaurants and merchants.
