LOS ANGELES,  (UPI) —  Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced all of the city’s parking meters are now officially accepting credit cards.

Villaraigosa said Tuesday the city’s 33,997 single space meters and 458 multiple-spot pay stations have been converted to accept both coins and credit cards, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday.

“These card and coin meters generate needed revenue, are environmentally conscious and, most importantly, they’re convenient and reliable,” Villaraigosa said.

The conversion began in 2007, with 33,345 of the meters being upgraded during the past two and a half years.
