Philadelphia’s parking system has sucessfully incorporated computer chip enabled cards called Smart Cards to save car-drivers time and the hunt for change! Car Drivers only need to buy the cards (available in a variety of denominations) and slide them through the parking meters. The cards automatically deduct money for the amount of time required.

Ompay, based in Philadelphia has pioneered the technology. "The firm’s goal is to get it so that traverls use just one card to wave their way through PATCO and SEPTA turnstiles, parking garage gates, and even at train ticket kiosks in outlying areas such as New York’s Penn station."
