Yea, I've got nothing. I live in Chicago, and I'm pretty happy with the new system. It was fubar'ed a bit during the initial transition, but all that is smoothed out from what I know. The pay stations are just about everywhere and by walking back and forth you lose a grand total of about 30 seconds.
This commentary is a joke. Wait in line to pay? I've never waited. And if you're in such a hurry that walking to and from your car makes you late, then be responsible and leave 2 min. earlier.
If anything it is super convenient since you can use your credit card to pay for parking. The only real downside is you cannot leave time on the meter so others (or you) don't have to pay. Though if I have a bunch of time left I usually ask someone parking around me if they want my stub. It doesn't track what car the paper is for, so if there is time left someone else can use it just fine.
*shrug* Some people just fear change.
