On Tuesday, September 10, 2019, all parking meters on Roosevelt Island streets will be converted to a cashless system. This means parking meters will no longer be able to accept bills or coins. Only credit cards will be accepted. This transition is part of RIOC’s ongoing commitment to embrace technology that cuts costs and improves efficiency of operations. Going to a cashless system will eliminate the need to regularly remove, transport and count currency from the machines. An overwhelming majority of customers – more than eighty percent (80%) - already use credit or debit cards to pay for street parking, so we expect this to be a seamless transition.
