PPA Will Stop Selling Smart Cards Today

Because the kiosks are even smarter.

“As the Parking Authority warned back in February, Smartcards are going away — and today is the last day you can buy them,” CBS Philly reports. “The Parking Authority will stop selling pre-paid smartcards after today because sales of the cards plummeted in recent years with the advent of parking kiosks. The kiosks, in Center City and University City, accept credit cards, and most drivers use that or cash, says PPA deputy executive director Corinne O’Connor.”
