Kingston’s parking kiosks ready


Parking meter kiosk under wraps

KINGSTON – The City of Kingston’s new parking kiosks program is ready to be pressed into action.

New high-tech parking meters, complete with smartphone apps, will be installed in city parking lots and along city streets and they should pave the way for 21st century parking opportunities for shoppers and diners, said Mayor Steven Noble.

“We have really tried to look at where we could get some new parking spaces added, how could we better manage our parking system to be introduced into the 21st century,’ he said.

“’Whoosh!’ is or new app for people to be able to pay their parking fees via their smartphone and not have to worry about running back out to the meter every five minutes. It will actually remind you when it is about to expire and you can put more money on it via your phone," the mayor said.

The kiosks will be installed in municipal parking lots.

The devices were paid for with a $125,000 bond.
