Wave goodbye to meters. Say hello to kiosks and mobile payment. The City of Columbus is introducing a simpler way to park. By the end of May 2022, mobile payment and new pay-by-plate kiosks will replace meter payment completely.  To pay using a mobile device, customers may scan to pay, text to pay, call to pay or use the ParkColumbus app. To pay at the nearest kiosk, customer must identify their zone using street signs, enter their license plate and pay with coin or card. The new parking system streamlines payment, consolidates parking zones and opens up more parking spaces, making Columbus a better place to live, work and visit.  Learn More
