New Meters Coming to Easton Starting Friday
City expects new credit card meters, other changes, to begin next month.
Drivers in Easton could start seeing new credit card meters around the city starting Friday.
According to the city parking plan available on the Easton website new meters will start going in downtown in two phases: March 1 to the 15th, March 15th to March 31.
With these changes comes a price increase: it will now cost $1 an hour to park at the meters, up from 50 cents per hour.
The city will put the meters on:
- Northampton Street -- from 2nd to 5th Streets
- North Third Street -- from Centre Square to Spring Garden Street
- Ferry Street -- From South Third Street to Second Street
- Second Street -- From Ferry Street to Northampton Street
During that time, the city will also replace some its existing coin operated meters with newer coin operated meters.
New parking enforcement hours—9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday-Saturday, noon to 6 p.m. Sunday—will go into effect April 1.
April 1 also marks the start of Easton's new fine reduction program for people who pay their tickets early. If you pay your ticket within 24 hours of getting it, or by close of business on the next day.
