Not Worth It - Wannabe-Be EZ-Pass
Haven't tried the app yet but it's not what I expected. I remember being in Yonkers,NY and they already had a system in place like this but it'll be as simple as pay-as-you-go. This app is making you hold a minimum balance of $25 that reminds me of EZ-Pass. For EZ-Pass it makes sense since traffic can't stop for someone who isn't responsible enough to keep a balance. You then have mail sent to you to chase you for the ez pass fee. For an app like this requiring that sort of balance makes no sense if you ask me. Maybe for those who often use meters but for those who don't we shouldn't be hassled to keep such a balance. We can pay as we go. That's how the app in Yonkers worked and it even counted down until you were needing to pay again. To me it seems selfish as if they have bigger intentions than just being helpful and adapting to modern technology. I'll pass and stick to the old way
App works great and in response to two reviewers: 1) The reason you can't extend time is due to the local parking rules. 1hr parking means you cannot stay in the spot more than an hour regardless of putting more money in the meter so kudos on the app noticing the interpretation of the parking regulation; 2) This system is still being rolled out little by little all over NYC so it's not everywhere just yet. The News made this clear and hoping to have it in full swing by summer. If the system is in place, you will see the parking zone number on the municimeter or parking sign
Works great! Negative reviewers are clueless
People complain you can only do one session at a time (with no refilling the meter), because that's how parking meters are supposed to work!
Feeding/refilling a meter is illegal - you are supposed to move after your two hour timer is up!
This app works perfectly.
