Charlotte, NC - May 11, 2015— Parkmobile, LLC, the leading provider of on-demand and prepaid mobile payments for on- and off-street parking, announced today that its mobile payments solution is now expanding to 1,200 spaces across 16 surface lots managed by Preferred Parking in Charlotte. 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 excited to expand our mobile payments solution in Charlotte,” said Cherie Fuzzell, CEO of Parkmobile, LLC. “Our customers have access to our services at more than 9,700 spaces including city-wide on-street spaces and spaces managed and/or operated by Preferred Parking, LAZ and CPS. Our continuous efforts to increase our footprint throughout Charlotte will make our service more ubiquitous. Our technology offers customers a more convenient way to pay for parking which makes our lives a little bit easier and efficient.”

“Preferred Parking is excited to add the Levine Properties to our portfolio. The compliment of these locations to our existing pool of spaces in Charlotte will offer many new areas for our customers to park in, as well as providing enhancing the services to the customers that have historically patronized these locations. The added benefit of expanding the Parkmobile network to these locations further expands our ability to offer the efficiencies and value that mobile payment for parking brings to the community.” Roger Stacks, President and Owner.

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.

The newest surface lot are located in the First Ward between 7th, College, 9th, and Brevard Streets in uptown.

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.
