    I didn't notice if the machine takes US coins. I just used a 5 florin coin.

    Thanks
    Smoki, I believe there is no limit how long you can park as long as you paid for it. Some parking lots require payment until 7 p.m., others until 11 p.m.

    There is a "Smartcard" for parking which you could buy:

    Crystal Casino offers free parking! From their FB:

    Retagger, you don't have to place the ticket inside the car on the dashboard. You can take the ticket with you as it shows the remaining parking time you have paid for. And it shows your parking space number in case you have to add some parking time which you can do from any parking meter without having to return to your car.

    The parking guard/police can see on their tablet the parking space numbers and when the parking time will expire. It's done through a network.

    The majority of the parked cars had the ticket on the dashboard, so I just did the same. I will ask a parking guard the next time I am downtown.

    Aruparking told me that to lightly moisten the ticket and press it to the inside windshield. And to take the receipt with you in case you need to add more time at another pay station.

    I saw the explanation on the FB of Aruparking. There was as well a post in English a few days ago but couldn't find it anymore. Here is the one in Papiamento:

    Brian En Carol Na NL mi ta pone e ticket back den auto ariba e dashboard pa asina e controller por wak e cu e auto ta para legalmente. Esaki ta e caso kinan tambe? Of AP ta riba un netwerk unda e controllers por wak riba un PDA cu e nummervak tin plaka riba djie pa X tempo y asina nan ta sigui fiets door na e siguente auto nan cu nan ta controla?

    Aruparking Brian En Carol esaki no ta e caso. Serka nos tur e parkeermeters nan di conecta riba un netwerk caminda cu un tablet nos parkeer wachters nan por monitor tur kos. Dus no mester laga e recibo riba e dashboard.

    The ticket is your receipt. There is only one ticket/receipt that comes out of the machine. (see my photo from my previous post).

    I was told by several locals that all parking was free after 7pm. The few pay stations we checked when we were downtown for dinner on several occasions over the last couple of weeks did indicate that it was free from 7pm-6am.

    Are the parking meters new? I don't recall seeing them before. Last visit was in July.
