If you want to use meters across Chicago, you may want to memorize your license plate number. New meters are being installed beginning today that work like the ParkChicago app that many are already using. You'll have to enter your license plate number followed by the stay duration. So, be on the lookout when you park.
You'll still be able to receive a printed receipt, but also with the option to receive a text copy. Since you'll be inputting your plate number, you no longer will need to display the ticket on your dashboard.
For more information on the new system check out www.chicagometers.com or call 877-242-7901.
