Penn State Harrisburg, Middletown, PA
UPDATE

University upgrades METRO Pay and Display meters to Pay by Plate operation, increasing efficiency and eliminating “piggybacking” of parking by others. The simple upgrade now requires a parking customer to enter their vehicle license plate during payment. Plate information is then printed on the pay and display receipt and cannot be used by another vehicle. Vehicle payment and plate information is also transmitted in real-time to the Ezicom back office system for remote monitoring and compliance checking.

Penn State University Harrisburg selects Global Parking Solutions to replace aging parking meters with new solar-powered METRO Pay and Display pay station meters. Meters communicate wirelessly to the Ezicom back office system allowing real-time monitoring of the meters.

METRO ACCEPTS COIN AND BILL PAYMENTS

Bill AcceptorMost parking meters are designed with coin acceptance in mind. The METRO parking meter system incorporates a WETDECK Coin Mechanism to minimize sticking of wet coins. A Coin Escrow and Cancel Button also enables customers to cancel transactions. Coins and tokens may be programmed as required with foreign, counterfeits, slugs and badly damaged coins being rejected.

The METRO’S fully integrated bill acceptor is compactly and neatly located in the lower cash vault area keeping all cash secure and separate from the upper maintenance compartment. The bill canister is capable of holding up to 500 bills.
