Mayor Michael Bloomberg says New York City drivers will soon be able to pay for parking at the city's 14,000 meters by cell phone and online.
The outgoing mayor says Thursday the city has begun the search for a company to offer the pay-by-phone service. This would eliminate the need for paper receipts placed on car dashboards.
Drivers would also be able to pay for parking using an app on their smartphones.
The city conducted a successful pilot project with similar technology along Arthur Avenue in the Bronx earlier this year.
