Parking in Carnegie

With assistance from PennVest, in 2015 the Borough of Carnegie in a collaboration with the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy completely renovated two of its busiest parking lots: the West Main Street Parking Lot and the East Main Street Parking Lot. The renovations included paving, signage, new sidewalks, parking kiosks, and storm water management.

The West Main Street Lot is permit parking only, and the East Main Street Lot is a no permit metered parking lot to accommodate the business/retail district and its patrons. The East Main Street lot is equipped with two Calè parking kiosks.

All parking is enforced in the Borough Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Parking is free in the evenings and on weekends.

The Borough's additional parking lots include:

  • Bagnato Parking Lot: Funeral and Permit Parking Only.
  • Chartiers Avenue Parking Lot: Public parking equipped with parking meters.
  • Elk Avenue Parking Lot: Permit Parking Only.
  • Family Dollar Parking Lot: Permit Parking Only.
  • Honus-Wagner Parking Lot: Permit Parking Only.
  • Izzy Miller Parking Lot: Permit Parking Only.
  • William & Mary Parking Lot: Permit Parking Only.

The Borough has limited Street Parking Permits on School, Robert, Broadway, and Walnut Streets in the Business District of town. In addition, there are countless parking meters conveniently located throughout the entire town. These meters may be used conventionally with quarters, or via the Meter Feeder smartphone app – the best of both worlds.

The Borough is also home to the Port Authority of Allegheny County’s West Busway – Carnegie Station Park & Ride. This bus-only highway provides direct transportation to the City of Pittsburgh and several western suburbs. In addition, the Borough offers many mass transit stops throughout the Borough providing extensive service to meet the needs of the municipality.

 

Press Release - February 9, 2016
CARNEGIE, PA RESIDENTS GET MOBILE PARKING APP
Local borough supports fast-moving Braddock based tech startup.

CARNEGIE, PA - On Monday, February 8, 2016, Carnegie Borough of Pittsburgh launched its mobile app for parking payments for local residents and businesses. A smartphone app developed by a Braddock based tech firm Meter Feeder Inc., can now be used to pay for parking with mobile devices allowing users to pay and add time to an expiring meter remotely.

Carnegie Borough has begun its partnership with Meter Feeder, Inc., which has an app of the same name available for download using any iPhone or Android device. The app allows users to upload and store their license plate and payment information the first time they pay for parking. Consequently, when a user's time is about to expire, the app sends a notification to their phone, alerting and allowing them to add more time remotely. Commuters can pay by app at any parking meter in Carnegie, including the East Main Street parking lot which also allows payments from a new multi-space Calè meter, similar to those installed in 2012 in nearby City of Pittsburgh. Borough Manager Steve Beuter commented, "We want our Main Street business district to grow and thrive, so we need to give patrons more options to pay that are easy and up to date as we become more progressive." This program now allows Carnegie Borough to monitor parking in both the East Main Street parking lot and nearby meters.

In turn, Carnegie's enforcement officers will use its administrative companion app, Meter Reader, as an enforcement tool to determine who has paid electronically and issue any citations, as needed. All citations will have a small QR code at the bottom. Dan Lopretto, Meter Feeder's Chief Technology officer and a native of McKeesport states, "Users of the Meter Feeder app can scan the bottom of the ticket with our app and pay for the violation in second with our brand new ticket scanning technology." Mr. Lopretto assures that this technology will improve user experience stating, "This simply hasn't been done before and we're very excited about improving the user experience." Decals and other signage will be added to the meters in the upcoming week, but users can download the app to their phones and start paying electronically right away.

While the program is new in Carnegie, Meter Feeder Inc. is also in use elsewhere in the region, including Dormont and Brentwood Boroughs. The company is planning to expand into more locations in the near future hoping to foster relationships with the local municipalities and boroughs while continuing to improve customer experience with parking.
