Between July 25 and Sept. 1, UW–Madison Transportation Services will convert the remaining coin-operated parking meters on campus to take payments using the Parkmobile mobile payment system.

Visitors can use this system to easily pay for parking by phone, on the web, or by using a mobile application. Converted parking meter locations will no longer accept coins.

Current hourly rates, time limits and hours of control for metered parking spaces will remain the same.
