FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pay Stations to go live in six municipal lots on Tuesday, October 10th
Kingston, N.Y. Pay stations that have been installed in six municipal lots throughout the City of Kingston are scheduled to be activated on Tuesday, October 10th. Beginning on this date, a fee of 75 cents per hour will be in effect Monday-Saturday, 9:00am-6:00pm at the following locations: all 3 North Front St. lots; the Cornell St. lot; the Prince St. lot; and the Dock St. lot. Users who have purchased and received a 2017 parking permit are not required to pay the hourly fee.
The pay stations will accept coins, credit cards (2 hour minimum, no service charge incurred by user) and mobile app payments through Parkeon’s Whoosh! app (2 hour minimum, 35 cent transaction fee charged to user.) The pay stations allow users to “pay by plate.” Users will be instructed to input their license plate numbers into the pay station. While users will receive a printed receipt after their transaction, they do not have to return to their cars or display any proof of payment on their dashboard. The City’s parking enforcement staff will be able to verify the vehicle has been paid by looking up the license plate. If a user has purchased a parking permit, that permit must be displayed on the vehicle’s dashboard.
Frequent users of these parking lots are encouraged to purchase a 2017 parking permit. These permits, which are currently for sale for $10, will be valid through December 31, 2017. Permits ensure a discounted rate, but do not guarantee parking availability.
Permits can be purchased in two ways:
1) Online by visiting www.kingston-ny.gov/parking and following the instructions. Major credit cards are accepted for payment.
2) By mail by either downloading the PDF application at www.kingston-ny.gov/parking or picking up a paper application in person at City Hall at 420 Broadway in Kingston. Applicants are responsible for mailing their completed applications and check or money order directly to the processing center.
