Montana State University parking officials are testing new smart parking meters in some short-term spaces.
The university is testing two meters in the 30-minutes spaces located in the Harrison lot.
MSU Parking Services has been looking at better ways to enforce short-term parking.
The new meters just take credit and debit cards. MSU officials say the meters will allow them to better monitor how people use short-term parking.
"What we're trying to do is make sure there's an easy way for us to turn those spaces over so they're available for a larger section of people that come to campus," said Kurt Blunck.
The trial period will run through the end of June.
Overall, the university has more than 60 short-term parking spaces across campus.
