New West parking meter rates on the rise

It will cost more to plug a parking meter in New Westminster beginning in the new year. And for those without the coinage they're going to make it easier to pay City Hall.

The city has announced as of Jan. 1, the price will be going up by 40 cents an hour to $1.50 on Twelfth Street and a $1.75 in Sapperton, Uptown and Downtown. The city said the increases will put New West on par with surrounding municipalities.

During 2014, New West will continue installing pay stations throughout the city, starting Downtown, that will accept credit cards or paying via a smartphone mobile app. That program is expected to be completed by the end of 2015.
