WESTFIELD, NJ — Newly installed and more user-friendly parking pay stations in downtown Westfield’s lots and along South Avenue became operational Monday. Each takes cash, credit cards, debit cards, tokens and smart cards, or users can skip the line and pay by app using their smart phones. Download the mPay2Park app for free or visit http://mpay2park.com/ to get started.

The same app allows users to see how much time is left and add more to their spot from anywhere, eliminating the need to run to the meter.

Previously, only 85 spaces in Westfield’s pilot program allowed users to pay by app.
