Pay by phone parking meter

I love paying parking meters by phone. This one is on South Dorner Drive, the street that is off of Pennsylvania Avenue and leads to CRCE on campus. The process is such: you call the 800 number, set up a credit card and a PIN number, then when you park you call, log on, enter your space number and how many hours you want to park. Simple. I even have the number programmed in my phone so I ask Siri to make the call. There is a 30 cents service charge, though.

I know C-U has tried some different strategies for parking payment, but I think this is the superior model currently in action around. Do you like this idea? Have you tried it? How would you prefer to pay for parking?
