FORT WORTH, Texas - Fort Worth has joined a number of Texas cities offering high-tech ways to pay for parking.

Officials say the last of about 80 solar-powered pay stations, to accept credit cards and print receipts, are being installed this week in downtown Fort Worth.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Sunday that the devices are meant to handle about 600 high-volume parking spaces.

The Fort Worth City Council last month approved an $882,000 contract with Parkeon, with an option for 30 more units.

Fort Worth joins cities such as San Antonio and Austin in using solar-powered parking-related devices.
