Soon, you can stop digging for loose change when using Bridgeville’s public parking lots.
The Bridgeville Borough Parking Authority is replacing the parking meters in its lots with electronic pay stations that accept credit cards, according to Mayor Pat DeBlasio.
The pay stations, which also accept coin payments, will be installed in the following lots:
Lot 1 (Next to the old PNC building)
Lot 2 (Next to Burgh’s Pizza & Wing)
Lot 4 (Railroad Street)
Lot 5 (Station Street)
Installation could be complete by the end of next week, weather permitting, according to the Mayor. During the transition, there is free parking in some authority lots.
Electronic pay stations should be welcome news to the business owners and residents who complained last year when the authority raised metered lot rates to 75 cents per hour, but only accepted coins as payment.
The parking meters along Bridgeville’s streets will remain. Lots that are currently permit-only will remain as such.
