Boise, ID April 15, 2013-- Parkmobile USA, Inc. announced today their revolutionary new service has been implemented at Boise State University. Students, faculty, staff and visitors are now able to pay for parking at any signed Parkmobile space on campus with their cell phone using Parkmobile’s native mobile applications for the iPhone, Android, Windows 7, and Blackberry smartphones, but they can also choose to pay with NFC-enabled mobile phones by waving or tapping their phone on any of Parkmobile’s NFC-enabled stickers. Boise State University will mark the first university in the US that Parkmobile offers NFC capability.
To use the new Parkmobile system, customers can register for free at www.parkmobile.com and where you can download a mobile app. Once registered, they can use a mobile app, the internet, QR code, NFC sticker, or call toll free, 1-877-727-5993 to pay for parking. All of these options can be found on the signage. After setting up the account, customers can immediately start using the system with their registered mobile phone. They can also select the option to receive text message alerts and reminders 15 minutes prior to their parking session expires.
