Parkmobile, LLC Partners with City of Shreveport to Introduce Mobile Payments for Parking
The Parkmobile mobile app will allow customers to use their mobile devices to easily pay for parking
Shreveport, LA – May 8, 2017— Parkmobile, LLC and the City of Shreveport announced today a program that will allow customers to use their mobile phones to pay for parking at approximately 1,100 on-street parking spaces throughout the city. Customers will be able to use Parkmobile’s mobile applications for iPhone, Android, and Windows phones to conveniently pay to park on-the-go.
To use the Parkmobile system, customers can register for free through the app or at www.parkmobile.com. Once registered, they can use the mobile app, internet, or call the toll-free number listed on the Parkmobile meter stickers and signs 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 customized reminders 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’s mobile payment solution is an added payment option and is intended to complement existing parking payment options.
“Parkmobile is proud to introduce our services to the City of Shreveport,” 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 hope users will appreciate being able to use our app to simply pay from their phones instead of searching for coins to park.”
