PHOENIX (CBS5) -

More than 500 parking meters in Phoenix will soon accept credit and debit cards as well as coins. You will find most of these in the downtown area, but also in the uptown area and Phoenix College.

"No more digging for loose change. The new meters make it easier for people to visit downtown and support local businesses," said Councilman Michael Johnson, chairman of the Downtown, Aviation, Economy and Education Subcommittee. "It also simplifies the collection process for the city and helps maximize funds to support important city services, like public safety, community centers and libraries."

So how do you spot one?

The meters will have green bands around the posts, which is fitting because the meters are solar powered, but you'll also see Visa, MasterCard, AMEX and Discover Card logos on them.

All parking meters are $1.50 per hour and enforced 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
