Pay-by-Space Parking Lots
The City of Sausalito has replaced the aging equipment in the municipal parking lots with new Solar-Powered Multi-Space Meters (MSMs).
HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW NOW
How Does The New System Work?
Each parking space in the public lots is assigned a space number. A sensor is embedded in each space, sensing when a vehicle pulls into the space. The sensor wirelessly informs the pay station that a vehicle has pulled in, and the software then allows 5 minutes for the customer to pre-pay for parking.
How Will The Parking Enforcement Officers Know That I’ve Paid?
All Officers will be equipped with handheld devices that communicate with the new MSMs through a wireless connection. The equipment communicates in real-time so the officer can be more efficient in their duties. Since the system keeps a detailed record of every parking session, it can alert Officers when someone has exceeded their paid time - or failed to pay altogether.
What Are The Hours Of The Lots?
Below are the hours and rates for the lots.
