Parkmobile, LLC Partners with City of Danbury Parking Authority to Introduce Mobile Payments for Parking
Parkmobile’s mobile app will allow customers to use their mobile devices to easily pay for parking–Supplements the use of credit cards or coins
Danbury, CT – October 13, 2016— Parkmobile, LLC and the City of Danbury announced today a program that will allow customers to use their mobile phones to pay for parking at approximately 400 on-street spaces throughout the city. Customers can pay for parking with their cell phone using Parkmobile’s mobile applications for the iPhone, Android, and Windows smartphones.
“This is an innovative and exciting service that will enable our residents to experience downtown Danbury in a more convenient and accessible way,” said Mayor Mark Boughton. “We are constantly finding ways to push forward into the 21st century as a city. This partnership with Parkmobile is just one of the many ways people can experience Danbury as a city of the future.”
To use the new Parkmobile system, customers register free at www.parkmobile.com. Once registered, they can use a mobile app, internet, or call toll free to pay for parking. After setting up their account, customers can immediately begin using the system with their registered mobile device. Enforcement officers will be able to see that a motorist has paid with Parkmobile using a wireless handheld device. Mobile app users may also choose to receive alerts and reminders 15 minutes prior to expiration of their parking session. Time limits on meters still apply and the app will not allow users to purchase more time than allotted by the meters.
“Parkmobile is excited to partner with Danbury and add to our ever-growing list of Connecticut and Northeast locations,” said Jon Ziglar, CEO of Parkmobile. “We are thrilled to partner with the City to offer this technology—offering drivers an easier, more convenient way to pay for parking.”
“We are so excited to partner with Parkmobile, giving visitors to CityCenter a new and innovated option to pay for parking” stated Deborah Pacific, Director of the Danbury Parking Authority. “The Parkmobile app is the solution the public and Parking Authority have been waiting for; no need to carry quarters or replace the meters. It’s a win-win for all.”
Parkmobile is in use in communities throughout the region including New Haven, Greenwich, Stamford, Norwalk, Hartford and other major cities including Pittsburgh and Washington, DC. In February, 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 5 million people using Parkmobile’s services over 30 million times per year, Parkmobile is excited to make a difference leveraging our large network of users. Parkmobile’s mobile payment solution is an added payment option and is intended to complement existing parking payment options. All existing forms of payment (parksmart cards and coins) are still valid for meter use.
