Transport Department completes replacement of roadside parking meters by new parking meters!
The Transport Department (TD) said today (January 17) that, as one of the smart mobility initiatives, replacement of about 9 800 existing roadside parking meters by the new ones in Hong Kong have been completed to replace the old Octopus-card operated parking meters.
The new parking meters support the payment of parking fees through multiple means and equipped with sensors to detect whether a parking space is occupied. The new meters also support on-site and remote payment of parking fees through mobile application “HKeMeter”. Details are available at TD’s website. For enquiries, members of the public can call 24-hour customer service hotline at 2332 3700.
