Brattleboro is transitioning to a new Smart Parking system.
Brattleboro is adding new convenience features to the parking system in response to the expressed wishes of the public. The number one concern raised last year during the Parking Survey was the need to accept credit and debit cards. The work to initiate this transition begins next week on January 22, 2019. Once the transition is complete this new equipment will allow the public to pay for parking in Brattleboro using a credit/debit card, using an app on their Smartphone, and even with traditional coinage.
All on-street single space meters (Such as those on Main Street or High Street, etc.) will be swapped out beginning on Tuesday, January 22, 2019. The transition is expected to take three days and to conclude at the end of the day on Thursday, January 24, 2019. We are not asking the public to change their parking behavior in any way during this transition, and we apologize in advance for any inconvenience this transition presents.
On Street Meters 1/22 – 1/24
The kiosks in the surface parking lots will be replaced with new Smart Parking kiosks beginning on Tuesday, January 29, 2019. This transition is also expected to take three days and will conclude at the end of the day on Thursday, January 31, 2019. There will be no charge for parking in a surface lot on the day that work is being performed in that particular lot. Lot specific signage will notify the public that work is being performed on that day and in that lot. Again, we apologize in advance for any inconvenience this transition will present to the public.
Pay & Display Kiosks 1/29 – 1/31
In addition, for those that would like to pay for parking using an app on their smartphone, that option will also be available. Users can download the Park Smarter App from Google Play or the IOS App Store.
With this transition, Brattleboro is phasing out Smart Cards. If you have a Smart Card and would like a refund for the remaining value, please visit the Parking Enforcement Office at 77 Flat Street.
