New York, NY - Muni-Meters, the pay and display parking meter system that has been used in Manhattan since 2009 will be installed in parts of Borough Park, Midwood and Kensington over the next few days and the New York City Department of Transportation continues its efforts to phase out the ubiquitous parking meters that line the city’s streets.

The DOT hopes to have all older style parking meters replaced by Muni-Meters within the next eighteen months.

As of November 19th, Muni-Meters will become operational on

• Corteylou Road from East 17th Street to Coney Island Avenue

• Ditmas Avenue from Ocean Parkway to Dahill Road

• 16th Avenue from 44th to 54th Street

• 18th Avenue from Ocean Parkway to Dahill Road

• Coney Island Avenue from Ditmas Avenue to Friel Place

• McDonald Avenue from Webster Avenue to Cortelyou Road

• Sections of East 2nd Street and East 3rd Streets

Muni-Meters will be installed in the Brooklyn College area on Tuesday, November 22nd on

• Campus Road from Nostrand to Ocean Avenue

• Bedford Avenue from Avenue I to Campus Road

The DOT trumpets the many advantages of the Muni-Meter, which frees up sidewalk space and creates more parking spaces within the same curb space in addition to featuring a convenient pay and display system. Parking meter rates at Muni-Meters are twenty five cents for fifteen minutes at short term parking spaces, $8.00 per day at long term metered spaces, with no charge for parking on Sundays.
