Anyone parking in a metered spot in downtown Lincoln will now notice an increase in those meters' prices.
The hourly rate doubled to $1 an hour on Monday.
Scott Vrbka, of the city's Parking Services, says all 1,300 new credit card meters have been installed. He also says about 1,000 older meters had to be changed by hand.
The new meters take debit and Visa and Mastercard credit cards. Parkers must buy a minimum of an hour.
The increase will generate an additional $1 million or more from meters, with $750,000 of it going to the city's general fund. The rest will help pay for new parking garages.
