  Visitors to downtown Columbia will be able to keep their change soon. Downtown Columbia will be adding more parking meters that are payable by smartphone app. The Parkmobile app allows drivers to pay a meter by credit card or PayPal. 

Public Works spokesperson Barry Dalton said the city will make every meter downtown accessible through Parkmobile by the end of this fall. There is no set date.

“Those new meters will allow customers to use coins, the city’s prepaid parking card, or the Parkmobile app,” Dalton said.
