Parking in Downtown Colorado Springs could be a little confusing for shoppers.
Nearly 900 parking meters have been replaced with credit card friendly meters that accept Visa, Master Card, and coins. However, they new meters will not accept the Easy Park Cards, a system that was put into place just 5 years ago.
The new credit card meters will be placed in the "core area" from Vermijo Street to Boulder Street and Cascade Avenue to Nevada Avenue, and on Colorado Avenue in Old Colorado City.
The rest of the city's meters will continue to accept the Easy Park Cards and coins. The City has approximately 2,400 parking meter spaces.
To help people adjust, the City of Colorado Springs has made an instructional video which can be found at: http://vimeo.com/65824595
