Parkmobile and Saint Louis University Partner to Launch Mobile Payment-Only Deployment
Saint Louis, MO – January 10, 2017— Parkmobile, LLC, the leading provider for on-demand and prepaid mobile payments for on- and off-street parking, and Saint Louis University announced today a program that introduces a mobile payment-only solution on campus. The solution allows customers to use their mobile devices to pay for parking using Parkmobile’s mobile app for iPhone, Android, and Windows smartphones, or by calling the toll-free number on the Parkmobile meter stickers and signs.
“We are excited to partner with Parkmobile, to provide convenient pay-by-app street parking to our faculty, staff, students, and visitors”, said Teri Monken, Assistant Director with Parking and Card Services at Saint Louis University. “The Parkmobile app is a convenient and efficient way to pay and extend parking for anyone who needs to quickly run into Busch Student Center, Simon Recreation Center, or many other locations along Grand Blvd.”
To use the new Parkmobile system, customers may register for free using the mobile app, online at www.parkmobile.com, or by calling the toll-free number on the signage. After setting up their account, customers can immediately begin using the system to start a parking session. Mobile app users may also choose to receive customizable reminders prior to expiration of their parking session. Enforcement officers will be able to see that a motorist has paid with Parkmobile using a wireless handheld device. Time limits on meters still apply and the app will not allow users to purchase more time than allotted by the meters.
“We are excited to partner with Saint Louis University to launch this Parkmobile only deployment,” said Jon Ziglar, CEO of Parkmobile, LLC. “Now parkers on campus will be able to take advantage of our technology, which enhances the parking experience by eliminating the need to carry coins, swipe a card, print a ticket, or run back to the meter to add time. We believe customers will truly appreciate and enjoy the convenience of paying for parking from their smartphones.”
With the most widely used mobile parking solution in the country and 5 million people using Parkmobile’s services over 30 million times per year, Parkmobile is excited to make a difference leveraging our large network of users.
