Parkmobile USA, Inc. Partners with Arlington County to Launch Mobile Payment Solutions
With the launch of Parkmobile, residents and visitors of Arlington, VA will be able to conduct their parking transactions by mobile phone.
Arlington County, VA -- Parkmobile USA, Inc. and Arlington County announced today a program that will allow customers to use their mobile phones to pay for parking at all of the metered spaces throughout Arlington County over the coming months. Customers can pay for parking with their cell phone using Parkmobile’s mobile applications for the iPhone, Android, Windows 7, and Blackberry smartphones.
To use the new Parkmobile system, customers register free at www.parkmobile.com. Once registered, they can use a mobile app, the internet, or call toll free to pay for parking. 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.
"Parkmobile is very excited to launch our mobile payment parking service in Arlington County," said Cherie Fuzzell, CEO of Parkmobile USA, Inc. “We are thrilled to partner with Arlington to offer this technology which enhances the parking experience by eliminating the need to swipe a card or feed coins to a meter. Parkmobile looks forward to working with Arlington to offer drivers a more robust means of parking.”
“Whether you use public transportation, bike, walk, or drive in and around Arlington County, we are committed to providing the best commuter experience possible,” said County Manager Barbara Donnellan. “This technology will make it easier for our residents and visitors to pay for parking.”
The new program will be rolled out as a phased project throughout Arlington in the coming months. The first phase has been completed, which consists of meters along Shirlington/Four Mile Run and Crystal City. Currently the service is available in those areas only. Our mobile payment service continues to be an example of innovative technology that can make our lives easier and more efficient.
Parkmobile is very enthusiastic about bringing the service to Arlington, VA and believes it will be an added benefit much like its neighbor DC where Parkmobile has close to 750,000 members. For additional information and locations, please visit: www.parkmobile.com.
