Beginning Monday, 214 new Smart Parking Meters will be installed in retail and commercial areas in downtown York, the city's parking bureau announced Thursday.

The meters will be installed in the 100 and 200 blocks of George Street and along parts of Market Street, West Philadelphia Street and Beaver Street.

The smart meters will expand payment options, accepting not only coins, but also Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover credit cards.

The changeover is expected to take about a week, if the weather cooperates, according to the York City Parking Bureau.
