Parkmobile and City of Lake Geneva Introduce Mobile Payments for Parking to Entire City
Lake Geneva, WI – June 10, 2016— Parkmobile, LLC, the leading provider of on-demand and prepaid mobile payments for on- and off-street parking, announced today that the company would be introducing its mobile payments solution to the city of Lake Geneva. Motorists parking in the city will be able to use the app at all 1,200 on- and off-street parking spaces throughout Lake Geneva. Customers can pay to park with their smartphones using Parkmobile’s app for iPhone, Android, Windows, Amazon, and Blackberry phones, or by calling the toll-free number on the green meter stickers.
“The City of Lake Geneva is excited to announce a new, convenient way to pay for parking from your smartphone!” said Sylvia Mullally, Parking Manager for Lake Geneva. “This summer, Lake Geneva will introduce the parking app to all metered parking stalls downtown. This 21st century upgrade gives motorists the option to pay for parking through their smartphone – the time saved paying from your phone gives you more time to enjoy the Lake Geneva experience.”
Parkmobile’s mobile payments system is very simple and easy to use. Customers first must register by downloading the mobile app in their phone’s app store or online at www.parkmobile.com. Once registered, they may use the mobile app, internet, or the toll-free number listed on signage to pay for parking. After setting up their account, customers can immediately start using the system with their registered mobile phone. Mobile app users may also choose to receive alerts and reminders 15 minutes prior to their parking session expiring.
“We look forward to bringing our service to Lake Geneva, especially since many Parkmobile users living in surrounding cities also vacation in Lake Geneva,” said Jon Ziglar, CEO of Parkmobile, LLC. “Relieving customers of having to carry coins and instead pay from their phones makes paying for parking fast and simple, truly enhancing the customer parking experience.”
Additionally, enforcement officers will be able to see that a motorist has paid with Parkmobile using their wireless handheld devices, so customers should not worry when the meter does not change. Parkmobile’s mobile payment solution is an added payment option and is intended to complement existing parking payment options. All existing forms of payment are still valid for meter use.
With the most widely used mobile parking solution in the country and 4 million people using Parkmobile’s services over 27 million times per year, Parkmobile is excited to make a difference leveraging our large network of users.
