November 16, 2015

Mobile app allows customers to use smartphones to pay for parking in the Public Parking lot on E 1st Street

Rome, GA  (Nov. 16, 2015) – Parkmobile, LLC  and City of Rome announced today that when using Parkmobile’s mobile payment solution, drivers will be able to receive a discount on parking this holiday season. Customers will be able to enjoy 1 hour of free parking in the E. 1st Street parking lot when using Parkmobile with promo code 1offRome. The offer will start Monday, November 16th through January 4th, with the promo code expiring on January 31st. Parkmobile provides drivers with the capability to pay for parking using a mobile application for iPhone, Android, Windows, Amazon, and Blackberry phones.  

Parkmobile’s mobile payments system is very simple and easy to use. Customers need only register online at www.parkmobile.com or by downloading the mobile app through their smartphone’s app store. Once registered, users may use the mobile app, internet, or a toll free number to pay for parking.  After setting up an account, customers can 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, so customers should not worry if the meter does not change. Mobile app users may also choose to receive reminders 15 minutes prior to expiration of their parking, as well as extend parking sessions remotely. Time limits on meters and parking lots still apply, and Parkmobile will not allow users to purchase more time than allotted by the meters or lots.

“With the winter season upon us, the convenience of paying by phone means you don’t have to brave the cold,” stated Parking Services Manager, Becky Smyth. “It’s also the perfect time to try the new app since customers can take advantage of the one hour free parking.”

"Parkmobile was happy to bring the service to Rome in 2014; it is an extension of the service which is offered citywide in Atlanta at approximately 2,500 on-street metered spaces (since March 2014) and 9,000 off-street spaces (since January 2010),” said Jon Ziglar, CEO of Parkmobile, LLC. “This cutting edge technology offers customers a new and better way to pay for parking and is truly beneficial to them. Our mobile payment service is an example of another technology that can make our lives easier and more efficient.”
