Morehouse said the e-parks
were also a necessary replace-
ment of the coin-operated parking
meters, which were eight years old
and not functioning properly.
"We (were) starting to see fail-
ures," he said. "We needed to
Morehouse added that the
e-parks are much more versa-
tile than their predecessors. The
previous parking meters only
accepted coins, but 'Morehouse
said drivers can now pay with
coins, debit cards, credit cards or
an e-park smart card - a pre-paid
card specifically for the e-park
Though the price of park-
ing generally increases annually,
Morehouse said the increase isn't
due to the e-park meter program.
The current price is $1.20 per hour,
according to the DDA website.
A DDA study has shown that 58
percent of parking payment trans-
actions made so far with the new
e-park meters involve credit cards,
Morehouse said. For a 35-cent
convenience charge, patrons can
also add time to their meter with a
phone call and receive a text mes-
sage when their time runs out.
The e-park also automatically
notifies Republic Parking System
- the company responsible for all
small Ann Arbor metered lots as
well as on-street parking meters
- when the change box is full,
when it's running out of paper for
receipts or if it's malfunctioning,
Morehouse said the majority of
the public response to the e-parks
has been positive, but there have
been a few voices of dissent.
"As with anything you would
install that's new, yes, there have
been complaints," Morehouse said.
"There have also been compli-
ments. We've done a survey where
over 85 percent of the people liked
Morehouse also said that while
some Ann Arbor residents initially
speculated that the meters would
be susceptible to vandalism, he
added that there have only been
a few instances of spray paint,
which was cleaned at no additional
expense to the city.
Rackham student Elan McCol-
lum said she has used the e-parks
before and has "mixed feelings"
about the system. While she said
she likes not having to keep quar-
ters on hand, she said it's frus-
trating that the electronic meter
doesn't display how much time is
left at a particular parking spot
and doesn't allow the subsequent
driver to use any leftover min-
McCollum also said she was
unaware that she could use her
phone to add time to the meter,
and said she would likely not use
this service because of the conve-
Jerry Schommer of Port Sani-
lac, Mich., a third-time user of the
e-parks downtown, said he found
e-parking to be an "innovative and

convenient way to do parking," but
thought it might be bad for people
in a hurry.
Morehouse also said he feels the
e-park system is not designed to
facilitate a quick transaction.
"The person who used to pull
up, jump out of their car, throw a
quarter in the machine, go in and
get a cup of coffee - this isn't for
them," he said. "It gives people the

Though the e-parks are relative-
ly new to Ann Arbor, other cities
are also adopting the new alterna-

Tim Dempsey, director of the

that he feels the biggest obstacle
in integrating the city's new park-

with the system. Nonetheless, he
said the e-parks have "been well
Dempsey said he supports the
expanded methods of parking pay-
ment and thinks the technology
benefits both the residents of East
Lansing and the city. He added
that while residents complained
about broken meters in the past,
the new e-park system communi-
cates with the city to inform offi-
cials when a meter is broken.
