Bloomfield Installs Nine New Smart Pay Stations

BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- The Township of Bloomfield is moving forward with installing addition smart pay parking stations downtown in the coming weeks. This will bring the total number of pay stations up to 14 in the downtown area. These machines are supplied by Parkeon, Inc.

Last May, the Township agreed to do a 90-day trial period with both Parkeon, and the IPS Group, Inc. Both proved very successful in enforcing parking and saving time for parking enforcement officers.

“The Township Council and I have been committed to modernizing our outdated parking enforcement system and consolidate services. Last year, we agreed to a trial period to see if this technology would help us save resources, and were thrilled with the results. This pay-by-plate technology that is used in Hoboken and other nearby cities has proven to save time and resources, which in turn save taxpayers’ dollars,” said Mayor Michael Venezia. “These new pay stations are solar powered, real-time reporting machines that improve our parking technology.”

Parkeon uses pay-by-plate technology to keep parking enforcement officers aware of the time remaining on all operating machines. All pay stations will now work with park mobile and accept three methods of payment (coin, cards, bills). Locations of these machines are Glenwood Ave, Washington Street, Lackawanna (train stations side), Farrand Annex Lot, Royal Theater lots, Conger Street Lot, Municipal Lot. All of these spaces will be 2 hour max parking time. Lackawanna St and Royal theater lots will still be 12 hour parking. These systems can be remotely controlled. All meters will be removed where pay stations have been installed.

Parkeon systems are in place in over 3,500 cities in 55 countries. This system has proven to increase township revenue by 20% - 30%, using technology to keep parking enforcement officers aware of the time left on every pay station, remotely. This video explains how to use Parkeon pay stations.
