Trial Smart Meters in Downtown

The City of Santa Ana is excited to announce that 50 smart parking meters that accept both credit card and coins are being tested in the downtown area to provide additional payments options for downtown visitors. The trial meters are focused on the high demand blocks of 4th Street, North Broadway, North Sycamore, North Birch and North Parton.  They are scattered deliberately in an effort to sample different areas in the Downtown and to receive feedback from users.

The trial period began on April 3rd and will last for approximately 90 days.  Following the trial period, data will analyzed to determine if smart meters are suitable for Downtown Santa Ana.  The results will be brought before the City Council sometime in the fall.
