Parkmobile, LLC Partners with the Parking Authority of the City of East Orange to Introduce New Parking Solution

November 6, 2017

EAST ORANGE, NJ – November 6, 2017 -- Parkmobile, LLC and the Parking Authority of the City of East Orange announced today a partnership that will allow customers to use their mobile devices to pay for parking at approximately 350 metered spaces throughout the city.

Parkmobile’s mobile payments system is user-friendly and widely-available across platforms. Customers first must register by downloading the mobile app for iPhone, Android, or Windows phones, or online at www.parkmobile.com. Once registered, they may use the mobile app, internet, or for those without a smartphone – call the toll-free number listed on the green meter stickers and signs to pay for parking. After setting up their account, customers may 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 and the parker’s license plate number. Mobile app users may also choose to receive alerts and reminders prior to their parking session expiring.

We are constantly looking for innovative ways to make the parking experience for our customers more convenient and enjoyable.  With Parkmobile's user friendly technology customers who may be pressed for time, and find themselves without change can now pay for parking with their phones," said Tasha Jackson, Operations Manager, EOPA.

“Parkmobile is thrilled to be partnering with the Parking Authority of the City of East Orange to provide a mobile parking payment solution. With more than 7 million users, Parkmobile has redefined the parking industry standard,” expressed Jon Ziglar, CEO of Parkmobile. “Users can use their mobile devices to conveniently locate and pay for parking and increase the time on their meter – depending on the maximum time. As the most widely used parking solution app, users have a wide network to rely on. We look forward to working with the Parking Authority of the City of East Orange to implement our services.”

Parkmobile is widely available in surrounding areas including Ocean City, Cape May, Wildwood Crest, Wildwood, Glassboro, West Windsor Township, New Brunswick, Metuchen, Bridgewater, Iselin, Roselle, Summit, Chatham, Newark, Hoboken, Montclair, Bloomfield, Englewood, Fair Lawn, Glen Rock, Ridgewood, Union City and West New York.
