Parkmobile, LLC, the leading provider of on-demand and prepaid mobile payments for on- and off-street parking, announced today the launch of its mobile payments solution in the Town of Mountain Village. Motorists will be able to use the app in three off-street lots throughout the town. Customers can pay to park with their smartphones using Parkmobile’s app for iPhone, Android, and Windows phones, or by calling the toll-free number on the green meter stickers.
“We are continuously researching ways to make parking more convenient and accessible to our residents, guests and commuters,” said Transit Director Jim Loebe. “Parkmobile’s pay by app system will enable our users to bypass the meter as well as extend their parking time remotely, hopefully making for a more pleasant parking experience in Mountain Village.”
Parkmobile’s mobile payments system is very simple and easy to use. Customers first must register by downloading the mobile app in their phone’s app store or online at us.parkmobile.com. Once registered, they may use the mobile app, internet, or the toll-free number listed on signage 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 custom alerts and reminders prior to their parking session expiring.
“Parkmobile is excited to bring our service to Mountain Village. Relieving customers of having to carry coins, and instead pay from their phones, makes paying for parking fast and simple, truly enhancing the customer parking experience,” said Jon Ziglar, CEO of Parkmobile, LLC.
Additionally, enforcement officers will be able to see that a motorist has paid with Parkmobile using their wireless handheld devices, so customers should not worry when the meter does not change. Parkmobile’s mobile payment solution is an added payment option and is intended to complement existing parking payment options. All existing forms of payment are still valid for meter use.
With the most widely used mobile parking solution in the country and five 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.
