LUKE Meters

More than half of downtown Milwaukee’s on-street parking spots are monitored by multi-space parking meters called LUKE meters. Coined after their cameo in the 1967 film Cool Hand Luke, LUKE meters are the high-tech solution to paying for parking when you’re short on change or need to add time to a meter, but aren’t in its vicinity.

LUKE meters accept Visa and MasterCard credit/debit cards and coins, plus they can talk to other LUKEs in the area. Meaning payment for a parking space can be made at any LUKE meter as long as the appropriate space number is entered. Additionally, LUKE dispenses a receipt that includes the time when the meter expires and the space number.
