ParkMobile, the #1 parking app in the U.S., has expanded its services to Cedar Rapids, Iowa through a partnership with the city’s parking provider, Park Cedar Rapids. Through the ParkMobile app, users can pay for on-demand parking at 1,100 on-street and 2,000 off-street spaces around Downtown Cedar Rapids.
“Our goal is to provide convenient, contactless parking options to enhance the Downtown Cedar Rapids experience. By partnering with ParkMobile, we’re making it easier than ever to find and pay for parking,” said Park Cedar Rapids General Manager Jon Rouse.
ParkMobile is currently used in other cities throughout Iowa including Ames, Davenport, and Sioux City, with over 67,000 registered users in the state. Cedar Rapids joins a growing number of Midwestern cities implementing ParkMobile, including nearby Des Moines, where ParkMobile will be available soon.
ParkMobile has over 30 million users across North America, is available for both iPhone and Android devices, and can also be accessed on a mobile web browser. To pay for zone parking using the mobile or web app, a user enters the zone number posted on signs around the parking spot, selects the amount of time needed, and touches the “Start Parking” button to begin the session. The user can also extend the time of the parking session on their mobile device.
“Partnering with Park Cedar Rapids is exciting for us as our platform is something they’ll be able to use for several types of parking, including metered parking and reserved parking for special events,” added Jeff Perkins, CEO of ParkMobile.
