Globe Follows Up on New Meters


Bruce Mohl follows up on yesterday's Boston Globe article about the city's new parking meters, Meters may break credit cards' rules:
Boston's new high-tech parking meters may be running afoul of Visa and MasterCard rules that prohibit vendors from imposing minimum purchase requirements on their customers.

  1. Heard on WBUR tonight that they're disabling debit & credit cards altogether on the new meters until they figure out what to do about these rules.

    Congratulations!

  2. I heard that too on my ride home. That adds insult to injury.

    Credit and Debit card users should be allowed to charge however much they want.

    Seems like a simple solution to me.
