NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A software problem has caused credit cards and pre-paid parking cards to be rejected by parking meters around New York City.
The Department of Transportation said the software had an “established end date” of Jan. 1, 2020 and was never updated by the vendor.
Drivers can still pay with cash or by using credit cards via the ParkNYC app
We’ve received reports across the city of parking meters not accepting credit cards. DOT crews are out fixing the issue. In the meantime, meters are still accepting coins & the free #ParkNYC app, available at https://t.co/iCQhX2wHF4, App Store, GooglePlay. pic.twitter.com/yzVU21jyqr

The DOT said crews were out working on the issue Thursday night, but there’s no word on how long it will take to fix the tens of thousands of meters.
The agency will discuss what to do about possible ticketed drivers with the city’s department of finance.
