New App Means Easier, More Convenient Parking
Denver, CO – People parking in city-owned lots now have a new way to pay! Denver Public Works is partnering with Parkmobile, LLC to allow customers to use their smartphones to pay for off-street parking spaces and receive notifications when their time is expiring.
“Any hurdles associated with paying for parking impacts how quickly people can get to where they want to go,” said Cindy Patton, Acting Manager of Parking and Mobility Services for Denver Public Works. “This new technology will allow people to park, pay via their mobile device, and not be required to stop or wait in line at a pay station. We are excited to provide this new mobile payment option that provides greater customer service to our residents and visitors so they can get to and from their destinations more efficiently.”
To use the new Parkmobile system, customers must create an account using the free mobile app (available for iPhone and Android), online at www.parkmobile.com, or by calling the toll-free number posted at the participating lots. Mobile app users can submit payments by phone and receive expiration alerts, decreasing the chance of parking fines. A nominal Parkmobile transaction fee is charged for each parking session and is in addition to the regularly charged parking fees. The app will recognize a customer’s location, provide parking duration options, and complete the purchase transaction. No additional steps are necessary, as enforcement officers will be able to verify payment wirelessly.
“Parkmobile is proud to introduce our services to the City and County of Denver,” said Jon Ziglar, CEO of Parkmobile. “We are thrilled to partner with the City to offer this technology—offering drivers an easier, more convenient way to pay for parking. We hope users will appreciate being able to use our app to simply pay from their phones instead of using the pay station.”
Parkmobile will be offered at all seven of the surface public parking lots managed by Denver Public Works Parking and Mobility Services. Most public parking lots are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
