Parkmobile Introduces Mobile Payment Parking to Ocean City, Maryland
Delivers the convenience of mobile payments for parking so that residents, businesses, and visitors will be able to conduct parking transactions by mobile phone in Ocean City
Ocean City, MD - May 19, 2015—Parkmobile, LLC, the leading provider of on-demand mobile payments for on- and off-street parking, announced today that its revolutionary service will be available starting Friday, May 22nd at all on-street parking spaces in Ocean City. Customers will be able to pay for parking from their smartphones by downloading Parkmobile’s mobile applications for iPhone, Android, Windows, Blackberry, and Amazon Fire smartphones.
“We are always looking for ways to improve our services and provide ease to our residents and visitors,” said Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan. “With a mobile parking app, families can spend more time on the beach or strolling the Boardwalk without having to leave the warm sand and salt air to pay the meter.”
"We could not be happier to provide our mobile payments solutions to the Ocean City," said Cherie Fuzzell, CEO of Parkmobile, LLC. “We believe that by allowing customers to eliminate the need to swipe a card or feed coins to a meter, our service enhances the parking experience. We are very excited to partner with Ocean City to offer this technology, making it more convenient for customers.”
Parkmobile’s mobile payment system is simple and easy to use. Customers can register online at www.parkmobile.com or download the mobile app in their phone’s app store. Once registered, they may use the mobile app, internet, or a toll-free number to pay for parking.
Once a customer’s account is set up, they can instantly begin using the system with their registered mobile phone. Using a wireless handheld device, enforcement officers will know that a motorist has paid with the Parkmobile app, so customers should not worry if the meter does not change. As an added bonus, mobile app users have the option to receive alerts and reminders 15 minutes prior to expiration of their parking session. Time limits on meters still apply and the Parkmobile app will not allow users to purchase more time than allotted by the meters.
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.
