HANOVER, Pa. (WHTM) — A new parking system is coming to Hanover in May.

Drivers will still be able to pay to park with coins, but with the updates, they will also be able to pay with their phones or credit cards. Parking rates will go up, which officials say is necessary to pay for the improvements.
