Edmonton rids itself of last remaining coin-operated parking meter

Edmonton has removed its last remaining coin-operated parking meters, making way for the new EPark system, which allows payment via credit card or smartphone as well as with coins.

The city has replaced 3,300 parking meters with nearly 400 EPark stations in recent years. Fortunately for city coffers, the new machines allow parking rates to be set according to demand, meaning you could pay more during busy hours.

The old parking meters are being sold to local residents “in as-is condition” for $100.
