PRINCETON: Town to explore technology options for downtown parking meters

Princeton this year will explore eliminating individual parking meters downtown in favor of having multi-space meters that could accept cash and credit card payments.

The town said Tuesday that the municipal engineering and public works departments would look at that possibility, just one of the technology options that a study will consider. Other municipalities in the country have switched to multi-space meters, box-like machines that typically accommodate eight on-street spaces per meter.

Princeton already is experimenting with such a system. Those kind of meters were introduced last year at the Dinky station lot and later on at Alexander Street. Plans call for expanding them to the lower portion of University Place around McCarter Theatre, said assistant municipal engineer Deanna Stockton on Tuesday.

He says, “But, Your Honor, I only did it to feed it to my starving family.” The judge says, “Due to the extenuating circumstances, case dismissed. Hmm, my friend, before you go, just out of curiosity, what did it taste like?” The guy says, “Kind of a cross between a bald eagle and a giant panda.”
