The City of Kingston starts replacing 34 old parking Pay & Display meters today as part of its ongoing parking maintenance efforts.
Most of the work will take place over three days, during which drivers parking in the vicinity will be required to use the next nearest operating machine as the units are replaced one at a time.
Targeted Pay & Display meters are on George (pictured above), O’Kill, portions of Ontario Street, and along Princess Street between Ontario and Division Streets. The machines have been determined to be at the end of their operational lives due in part to heavy use and proximity to the lake.

Marissa Mascaro, manager, parking services, said in a City release that the new meters have faster processing times and motion sensor lights that activate when you approach them. They are also considered more reliable and should have less downtime than the units they replace.
Drivers can also use the HonkMobile app to find and pay parking at a number of downtown City lots.
