Both Styles of New Parking Payment on Same Block

July 30, 2015 Downtown, Featured, Parking No Comments

New parking meters are pretty much installed throughout greater downtown St. Louis.  These include multi-space pay stations and updated single-space meters. I’ve yet to determine how it was decided which type would go on which blocks. In the 7 blocks I travel to reach the store both types are used.

Last week, looking at the Chestnut bike lane, I noticed in the 1000 block of Locust each side of the street is different from the other.

1000 block of Chestnut: On the North side single space meters, other side multi-space pay stations (one circled in red)
1000 block of Chestnut: On the North side single space meters, other side multi-space pay stations (one circled in red)

I might map out block by block to see if a logical pattern emerges…or I’ll enquire. It just seems like downtown visitors might be confused by two different physical ways to pay for on-street parking.  I still prefer the app.
