MacKay Meters

Until today I didn't know what the diagonal slot next to the coin slot on San Francisco parking meters was used for:
This slot is for prepaid Parking Meter Debit Cards. They come in $20 or $50 denominations, and they will be compatible with TransLink by 2010, making them good for travel on almost all Bay Area public transportation, including BART and MUNI.
The meter is powered by a battery the size of 3 'c' cells, and it lasts 1 to 2 years.

Go here for a list of Card resellers.
