Parkmobile and Town of Islip Partner to Introduce Mobile Parking Solution

October 25, 2017

Islip, NY – October 25, 2017 – Parkmobile, the leading provider of mobile parking solutions in the US, announced today a partnership with Town of Islip, to allow customers to use their mobile devices to pay for parking. The new service will be available throughout the Bay Shore, NY downtown area and the surrounding train station lot. Users will now be able to use their mobile devices to pay for parking in Islip at approximately 1000+ spaces.

Parkmobile’s mobile payments system is user-friendly and widely-available across platforms. Customers first must register by downloading the mobile app for iPhone, Android, or Windows phones, or online at www.parkmobile.com. Once registered, they may use the mobile app, internet, or for those without a smartphone – call the toll-free number listed on the green meter stickers and signs to pay for parking. After setting up their account, customers may immediately start using the system with their registered mobile phone. Enforcement officers will be able to see that a motorist has paid with Parkmobile using a wireless handheld device and the parker’s license plate number. Mobile app users may also choose to receive alerts and reminders prior to their parking session expiring.

“Our LIVE Parkmobile app further enhances the ease of parking in downtown Bay Shore by allowing customers to pay by cell phone. The Town has worked with the community since the program’s infancy, to ensure that this parking management program maximized the ease of available parking in our downtowns, railroad stations and major popular areas, while at the same time, eliminating the abuse of those who park beyond the allotted times. The need for a managed parking program continues to grow, as new businesses and residences have made recent significant investments in this popular community. The back-lots are free until 6 pm, and the vast majority of parking in downtown Bay Shore is still free,” Town of Islip Supervisor, Angie Carpenter.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the Town of Islip to introduce a convenient mobile parking solution. With more than 7 million users, Parkmobile has changed the parking industry standard. Gone are the days of using coins or cash – users can now swiftly use their mobile devices to pay for parking on the go. We look forward to working with Islip to enhance the parking experience for residents and visitors,” expressed Jon Ziglar, CEO of Parkmobile.

Parkmobile is widely available in surrounding areas including Buffalo, Rochester, Ithaca, Poughkeepsie, Dover, Salisbury Mills, Port Jervis, Otisville, Campbell Hall, Beacon, Harriman, Cortlandt, Suffern, Pearl River, Hastings-on-Hudson, Yonkers – among others. Additionally, Parkmobile maintains a contract with the New York City DOT to offer mobile payment at all metered spaces across all five boroughs.

As the most widely used mobile parking solution in the country with over 7 million users employing Parkmobile’s services over 45 million times per year, Parkmobile is excited to make a difference leveraging our large network of users.
