MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s out with the old and in with the new when it comes to paying for parking in Minneapolis. The city is saying a final farewell to its old-style parking meters officially on Wednesday.

The city started installing new parking pay stations two years ago. Spaces are identified by numbers and people can now pay with credit cards as well as coins.

There is only one part of town where you can still find the old parking meters. That’s the Seven Corners area of the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood. At about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, crews will remove the final one to make way for the new pay stations.
