City Tickets NYC


This design exploration asks how existing pieces of real-world urban infrastructure–specifically pay-and-display parking meters equipped with power, a network connection and a printer (such as NYC’s Muni Meters)–might be reimagined as entry points to citizen responsiveness systems such as 311. This pilot brings the vital dialogue between citizens and municipal administrators to the one place where it is most immediately relevant and most readily acted upon – the sidewalk, here and now.
