   City of Fayetteville improves downtown parking , adds new payment methods
    
   FAYETTEVILLE , Ark . – The City of Fayetteville has made several changes to parking in the Downtown Business District , including modernizing payment methods , to make the process easier for Fayetteville residents and visitors .
    
   On - street parking meters in the district , which total 250 and previously only accepted coins , have been replaced with “smart” meters that accept payment via credit cards , mobile app ( ParkMobile ) and contactless payment methods . Drivers still have the option to pay with coins .
    
   Many of the smart meters are equipped with sensor technology that identifies the exact moment a car is parked in a space . City officials said the sensors will provide real - time parking availability data and allow for grace periods , during which parking rates will not be required for downtown customers during shorter parking sessions .
    
   “The sensors allow for a friendlier approach to parking enforcement , ” said Justin Clay , parking management director for the City . “Also , it gives the ability to relay real - time parking availability via the mobile app . ”
    
   On - street meters are either short - term with a two - hour limit , or long - term with no time limit . An updated parking map for the Downtown Business District has been added to the 
   City’s Parking Management Department webpage
    . Parking around the Downtown Square and Gardens is still free for no more than two hours in a four - hour period .
    
   The five municipal surface parking lots in the downtown district , which previously had 275 single - space coin meters , now feature pay stations for each lot that use a pay - by - license plate method . Transitioning to a pay - by - plate method allows for the same grace period options as the on - street sensors , and it allows City staff to enforce permits by license plate , removing the need and costs associated with physical permits .
    
   With the addition of payment stations , Clay said accessibility will be improved by the removal of single - space meters along sidewalks that are adjacent to parking lots .
    
   To cover the operational software costs associated with the new equipment , Fayetteville City Council approved Resolution 6475 in 2021 , changing on - street rates from 25 cents per hour to 50 cents per hour and surface lot rates from 15 cents per hour to 25 cents per hour .
