The Lancaster Parking Authority is Bringing On-Street Mobile Payment Option to City
The “Park Lancaster” mobile app will provide customers another payment option at all on-street multi-space kiosks and city coin meters.
The Lancaster Parking Authority has entered into agreement with Parkmobile, LLC to launch an on-street mobile payment option throughout the city starting on August 31st. The Application will allow patrons to use their mobile devices to pay for parking at over 1,700 on-street parking spaces throughout the city. Customers using the “Park Lancaster” app will be able to pay for parking with their smartphones using a mobile application available from iPhone and Android. The app is free to download. Additionally, Parkmobile customers from other cities will be able to pay for parking in Lancaster using their current Parkmobile account.
“We are excited to provide the community with a new and exciting parking payment option. The future is making payments using your smartphone, and no longer will you have the frustration of needing a handful of quarters for single space meters throughout the city,” said Larry J. Cohen, Executive Director of the Parking Authority.
“Parkmobile is very excited to partner with such a progressive city.” said Cherie Fuzzell, CEO of Parkmobile. “We believe customers in the City of Lancaster will truly appreciate and enjoy the convenience of paying for parking from their smartphones. Our service makes paying for parking fast and simple, enhancing the customer parking experience.”
The Park Lancaster app functions similarly to Parkmobile’s mobile payment system and is simple to use. To set up an account, customers can download the mobile app in their phone’s app store or register online at www.lancasterparkingauthority.com. Once registered, customers can use the mobile app, internet, or a toll-free number to pay for parking.
After setting up the account, customers can immediately begin using the system with their registered mobile device. Enforcement officers will be able to see that a motorist has paid with Park Lancaster using their wireless handheld device, so customers should not worry if the meter does not change. Mobile app users may also choose to receive alerts and reminders 15 minutes prior to expiration of their parking session.
Parkmobile, LLC is the leading provider of on-demand and prepaid mobile payments for on- and off-street parking. Their services are used in more than 1,400 locations in the U.S. by millions of registered users.
