The City of Fresno has partnered with a leading provider of parking payment technologies to bring additional downtown parking enhancements.
Parkeon, a French-headquartered company specializing in payment and ticketing systems, partnered with Swedish parking technology company Cale to make Flowbird, a provider of parking payment technologies.
The company has supplied parking systems to cities including Los Angeles, Sacramento, Oceanside, and Paso Robles.
Solar-powered parking pay stations have already been installed in six public downtown parking lots and feature a 7 inch full-color display screen.
There was also directional signage added to the pay stations in the parking lots.
The pay stations accept coins, bills, credit cards, and debit cards. Users enter the license plate number and select their desired parking duration. Drivers can still use their ParkMobile app in these locations as well.
“The City is committed to ongoing parking enhancements in Downtown Fresno. We still have many more changes in store, including the launch of credit card enabled parking meters,” says Thomas Gaffery, Parking Division Manager with the City of Fresno.

Promenade Lot, 2650 Tulare St.
