New Minneapolis parking meters yield fewer tickets, more revenue

The city of Minneapolis is making more money from its new credit-card “smart” parking meters, and issuing fewer tickets, the Southwest Journal reports. The city made about $7.5 million from parking last year, up $1 million from 2010, when the new machines were first installed.

The new meters were first installed in November 2010.

The city has a downtown parking meter map with pricing information, as well as a map that shows expansion plans for the new meters.
