Time's Up for NYC's Single-Space Parking Meters

The meters will be replaced by solar-powered Muni-Meters.

The parking meter has expired.      

The city will remove the last single-space parking meter in Manhattan on Monday, reports The New York Times.      

It's part of a process to convert the whole city to the Muni-Meter system, where drivers get receipts from a solar-powered machine to place on their dashboards.      

The city Department of Transportation says the new meters are an improvement because they take credit cards and require less maintenance.      

A few of the old poles will remain behind.

They'll have their so-called "brains'' removed and then they'll be converted to bike racks.
