New solar powered parking meters at U and 14th street.
Starting in July, D.C. plans to launch a new citywide program with the company to allow drivers to use their mobile phones to pay for parking at metered spaces.
A competitor in a pilot program for the service, Verrus Mobile Technologies, discontinued its service this week. ??
ParkMobile already provides pay-by-phone service near Georgetown Hospital, in Foggy Bottom and around Nationals Park.
??Once the program expands citywide, there will be a fee for each transaction. Users will be charged an additional 30 to 35 cents per transaction. The fee goes to ParkMobile to make the service free for the city.??
Drivers still have the option of using coins or credit cards in many locations.
