After too many tickets due to not carrying enough (or any) cash and coin on my person, I decided to use Denver’s Cash Key Program. Check it out. You’ll love it. A refillable key (with $20 to start on it) costs $30, including the $10 deposit. They work in every downtown meter, which means not Cherry Creek, where you still have to pay at the kiosk (but, alas, they take cards) and the small section in Larimer Square which uses the same kiosk system.
Try it. You’ll love it. And when multiple cars of your friends pull into a slot, like I did yesterday, we used the key on all of our meters.
Oh, by the way, this is my last post, for multiple reasons I won’t go into for fear of insulting some folks. Good luck, Denver.
