Columbia, S.C. (WOLO)– No more excuses for not feeding the meter in Five Points.
The City of Columbia announced the installation of new Solar Luke II pay stations in what they are calling the Harden St. lot, which was the Exxon lot.
The new meters allow customers to pay with cash, card, or by phone.
They will begin use next wednesday, say City officials.
You can also get text updates when the meter is about to expire and add more time without heading back to your car.
It’s not cheap though, before 4pm parking is one dollar an hour, after 4pm its a $5 flat rate, on the weekends after 4pm its $7.
