Metro Parking Machines

Metro Parking Machines: Metro Pay & Display, Metro Pay by Plate, Metro Pay by Space

We design, build, and integrate award-winning Metro parking machines that offer world-leading design, 360 real-time reporting, and total payment flexibility.

Our range of machines includes Metro Pay & Display, Metro Pay by Plate, and Metro Pay by Space. All of our machines are built to the same modular design, which enables them to be easily reconfigured from one mode of operation to another in the field.
