Update: Meter Up App No Longer in Service!

Way back in February, I wrote a post recommending convenient parking options in Philadelphia. Well, as of April 11, one of the apps I mentioned called “Meter Up” is no longer in service. According to 6abc Action News, the company sponsoring the app is experiencing financial issues which led to the shut-down.

Now, instead of being able to pay Philadelphia’s parking meters from anywhere using your phone, drivers will need to pay the kiosk using cash, coins or credit cards instead.

There is hope though, and if a more financially prosperous company agrees to sponsor the app, it should be up and running again soon. Stay tuned for updates!
