From the City of Reno:

The City of Reno purchased 898 SmartMeters from IPS Group, Inc. and is installing them in downtown parking areas. The new high-tech solar-powered parking meters offer users additional payment options such as credit cards and coin. The meters are wirelessly networked to a web-based management system which alerts the City in the event of required maintenance.

Prior to their introduction, motorists were limited to coin only meters to pay for their parking. In addition to coins, the SmartMeters accept Visa and MasterCard. The minimum amount of time one can purchase with a credit card is one hour. The cost per hour is $1. For more information and locations of the SmartMeters, please visit www.Reno.gov/Parking.
