[ARCHIVED] RI Street Parking Meters Going Cashless

Re-Introducing RIOC - Embracing Technology

On Tuesday, September 10, 2019, all parking meters on Roosevelt Island streets will begin to be converted to a cashless system. This means parking meters will no longer be able to accept bills or coins. Only credit AND debit cards will be accepted. Originally, only credit cards would be accepted but our parking machine vendor was able to make this change at the urging of our residents and RIOC. 

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. Unlike many other authorities in New York State, RIOC does not receive funding from Albany and must operate as efficiently as possible.
