Parkmobile, LLC Partners with the City of Charleston to Offer Mobile Parking App

February 5, 2018

Parkmobile, LLC and the City of Charleston announced today the launch of the Parkmobile app, which allows customers to use their mobile devices to pay for parking in the city.           

To use Parkmobile, customers can register for free through the app for iPhone, Android or online at parkmobile.com. After setting up their account, customers can immediately begin using the system with their registered mobile device. App users may also choose to receive a reminder prior to the expiration of their parking session, and if the maximum parking time has not been reached, parkers can even extend their time from the app. Enforcement officers will be able to see that a motorist has paid with Parkmobile using a wireless handheld device and the user’s license plate number. Additionally, multiple payment methods are offered through the app, including Masterpass, PayPal, Visa Checkout, Chase Pay, Parkmobile Wallet, and Apple Pay.

Mary Dickerson, Director of the Traffic Parking and Transportation Department at the City of Charleston, stated, “Our mission is to facilitate and promote alternative transportation options for our parking customers.  Parkmobile will modernize our traditional parking standards by providing an efficient payment option to our customers.   Our city takes prides in being the” Cultural, Recreational, and Business Capitol of the Appalachian Mountains”.   We are pleased to enter into this partnership with Parkmobile and believe this is a positive step toward upgrading some of our parking operations within the city.

“Parkmobile is excited to partner with the City of Charleston to offer a mobile parking payment app that allows users to conveniently pay for parking using their mobile devices. With availability in more than 3,000 locations across the US, we’re thrilled to have Charleston join our wide network. Parkmobile continues to lead the industry on offering the top mobile parking solution app focusing on convenience and accessibility,” Jon Ziglar, CEO of Parkmobile stated.

Parkmobile is widely available in surrounding areas like Morgantown and West Virginia University. Additionally, New York City DOT awarded a contract to Parkmobile to allow mobile payment at all metered spaces across all five boroughs.

With the most widely used mobile parking solution in the country and 8 million people using Parkmobile’s services over 60 million times per year, Parkmobile is excited to make a difference leveraging our large network of users.
