City Set to Remove Last Single-Space Parking Meter in Manhattan

    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.
