The city of Sydney is soon to see a shift in the way people pay for their public parking. 

It is reported than 1,000 or more parking meters throughout the CBD will be replaced with new solar powered meters capable of accepting payment via a mobile phone or credit card. The meters will also send an SMS to the motorist warning them that their meter is soon to expire.

North Sydney has experienced these meters where they have become a huge success and more reliable than the old style meters.

Lord Mayor Clover was reported as saying:

"In today’s cashless society, many people do not carry spare change so it makes sense to offer alternative payment methods."

All meters are said to be replaced within 3 months, with 100 of them currently in operation.
