New kind of parking meter for downtown Kalamazoo

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- If you've been to downtown Kalamazoo lately, you may have noticed some fancy new parking meters. These are all digital, and take credit cards. Plus, Downtown Kalamazoo Inc's Steve Deisler says you can pick the amount of time you want, in a pretty precise way.

He says you just slide your card in the machine, selected how many minutes you want, and it'll set you up. You can also pay with your cell phone in some cases.

They're only using these fancy new parking meters in a few locations because they're pretty expensive. Deisler says you can also get a meter card. That's a prepaid parking debit card that you can pick up at the Central City Parking office on North Rose, and they work all over the city.
