Parkmobile Transforms Parking at Iowa State University with Mobile App Solution
Mobile app allows students, faculty, staff, and visitors to use smartphones to pay for parking - No need for quarters to pay for pre-pay spaces!
Ames, IA - August 24, 2015 -- Parkmobile, LLC announced today that its mobile payments solution is now available on campus at Iowa State University. Students, faculty, staff and visitors can now pay for parking with their smartphones using Parkmobile’s mobile applications for iPhone, Android, Windows, and Blackberry phones or by calling a toll free number. The Parkmobile service is being offered at approximately 600 pre-pay spaces in three lots around campus.
Mark Miller, Director of Parking said, “We listened to our students who requested we have an option to extend time in the event a class runs long or they can’t make it back before their time runs out. The app will notify the user the time is about up and allow them to extend time without having to go back to the machine.”
Parkmobile’s mobile payment system is very simple and easy to use. Customers need only to register by downloading the mobile app in their phone’s app store or online at www.parkmobile.com. Parkmobile offers customers the ability to select either Parkmobile Wallet as their payment method to receive a reduced transaction fee of $0.15 per transaction or traditional credit/debit card or PayPal method with a transaction fee of $0.35 per transaction.
Once registered, they may use the mobile app, internet, or a toll-free number to pay for parking. After setting up their account, customers can immediately start using the system with their registered mobile phone. Mobile app users may also choose to receive alerts and reminders 15 minutes prior to expiration of their parking session.
