Both systems are solar powered, take credit/debit cards and allow two hours of parking -- one hour more than has been offered previously in the downtown core. Both meters still offer the first 20 minutes for free.
The City has set up an online survey to gauge public response to the two trial systems. The survey can be found at this link or by visiting the City’s website at CityofBoise.org from your computer or smart phone. If you don’t have internet access, call the Mayor’s Office at 384-4422 and a hard copy of the survey will be mailed to you. The results of the survey will be used along with data gathered from the meters themselves to inform what types of meters the city should use in the future.
