Attention In-Car Meter Customers:
14 years ago, the City of Aspen introduced the in-car meter program. Since then, the public has enjoyed a very convenient method of paying to park.
Unfortunately, the in-car meter manufacturer has decided to discontinue this product and the Parking Department's supply is depleted. Customers in possession of the in-car meters are encouraged to return them when the batteries expire. Upon return, your initial deposit will be refunded. We apologize for any inconvenience.
