The City of Burlington has chosen to upgrade its parking throughout the downtown core with Precise ParkLink's Parkeon Pay-By-Plate parking machines and mobile parking solution called TelePark. As soon as mid-May, motorist can expect to start using the Pay-By-Plate parking machines in municipal lots, the parking garage on Locust Street and on the streets throughout downtown Burlington.
Mr. Vito Tolone, Burlington’s Director of Transportation says that the city is “excited to introduce the new parking machines...as the Pay-By-Plate technology will give users a lot more flexibility... with more payment options, including the ability to top up their parking time remotely ”.
Precise ParkLink will be replacing the existing parking meters incrementally over the next several weeks. Residents and visitors to the city can expect to feel tremendous relief when it comes to parking because Precise ParkLink’s Pay-By-Plate system is a radical improvement from the old 1980 parking meters. The City of Burlington plans to salvage as many of the parts of the previous meters and recycle as much as possible.
