The City of Tulsa will start enforcing parking in the Brady Arts District. A total of 21 pay stations are installed in the area, under "3210" zone.

Drivers can download the app called "Park Mobile" to pay via smartphone using a credit or debit card, but they can also do it at one of the pay stations.

"I prefer this method. If I had known it was there, I would have downloaded it earlier, but I prefer that because it's one credit card. It has all of our information," said Ron Martin, who was visiting Tulsa.

The City says this is a more efficient and convenient way of paying than the old meters that are outdated or irreparable.

However, some people working in downtown aren't welcoming this new parking system.

"I disagree having to pay parking," added Chloe Willhite, "Now have to pay instead of being able to show up and go into work."

Willhite works at Valkyrie near Guthrie Green, an area that didn't enforce parking meters before.

However, City employees compare Tulsa to other major cities that require paying for parking.
