Meters

Meter Info

Salt Lake City is upgrading the paid parking meters (blue kiosks). The system-wide upgrade will result in a faster, more reliable and easier to use meter. Specific improvements to the meters include new technology on the inside of the meter, a well-lit screen, more durable buttons on the outside, fewer steps to pay for parking, and a vastly improved transaction time when using a credit card. The upgrade to the system will be complete by the end of January.

Rates:
