Huntington is rolling out an app to pay for metered parking at the Long Island Rail Road station and in Huntington Village.
The Passport Parking app was first tested starting Oct. 17 at the LIRR station and has since expanded to downtown. The town expects to complete the installation of app decals on parking meters and on the numbered poles marking metered parking spaces in Huntington village this week.
“We did a quiet launch to work out any issues with the deployment before promoting it to the public and it appears that the app has been very well-received – it’s very easy to use,” said Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci. “We’re already seeing people use the app in Huntington village, where our team is completing signage installation but the app is already active.”
Zones are broken down by street.
The Zone decals on the numbered poles in the village will be visible from the street as the driver pulls into the space, enabling payment from a cell phone inside the vehicle. Standalone Zone signs will also be installed in the various zones in the village after the decal placement is completed.
