Encyclopedia > Muni Meter

Muni Meter is the name used by the New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT) for its pay and display centralized parking meter system. The Muni Meter is centrally located on a street around a group of parking spots, with no designated striping to separate spots. A driver must park their car, pay at the Muni Meter (using coins or prepaid parking cards) and display the receipt provided on the dashboard of the vehicle. This system reduces the number of individual meter devices required, increases the number of parking spots available (by allowing as many cars to park as can fit) and reduces losses due to unused time left on meters reused by subsequent parkers.
