10104_620The “boletas” or parking stubs that has been in use for street parking in San José will come to an end this week, replaced by the new electronic parking meters.

The Municipalidad de San José said it will continue to accept the paper stubs as proof of parking until the end of the week, but starting next no more when all the “boletas” in circulation lose their value.

It is estimated that some 5.000 vehicles use street parking spaces daily in San José. The Muni recently installed the electronic meters and is confident they will be a success.

The new meters can be loaded with parking space time by was of a cellular phone, virtual pins, credit and debit cards and on the municipality’s website.

Before the new meters were installed, street parking meant, after finding an empty parking space, locating a vendor or point of sale, like a nearby hotel, restaurant, etc.

Once the boleta was paid for a specific time, it was placed on the dash, inside the windshield, for street parking officials to control. Once time ran out, it meant a parking ticket.

With the new meters, the paper boleta is no more.

This also means the hundreds who depended on the sale of the boletas will be out of a self-made job.
