Parking downtown just got a bit "smarter."
El Pasoans will be seeing new "smart" parking meters in the downtown area as early as May.
Today, city leaders approved the new meters which will accept credit cards, smart cards, coins and even payment through a smart-phone app.
Right now, downtown El Paso has around 2,000 mechanical meters, but most of those in the government and hospital areas will be converted next year.
