ParkMobile, the #1 parking app in the U.S., expanded its services to the City of College Station, TX with a launch in October. Though this is the municipality’s first partnership with ParkMobile, the app has been active on the Texas A&M Campus for over seven years. ParkMobile has removed all College Station single-space meters and replaced them with ParkMobile and is available for marked on-street parking spaces throughout the Northgate Entertainment District.
“Our city is excited to be using ParkMobile in Northgate after seeing the platform’s success at A&M over the years,” said Eric Chapman, District Supervisor for College Station’s Community Services. “Creating a better driving experience for residents and visitors is what formed our partnership with ParkMobile, and since launching in October, our payment compliance rate has increased and the number of citations written has decreased.”
Texas is ParkMobile’s most popular state with the most active cities and venues, and almost 1.9 million users. In College Station, there are currently over 47,000 users, though that number is expected to grow with the further integration of College Station. ParkMobile is also available in Austin, Dallas, Denton, El Paso, and Houston and at numerous colleges and universities around the state.
ParkMobile has 30 million users across North America, is available for both iPhone and Android devices or can also be accessed on a mobile web browser. To pay for parking using the mobile or web app, a user enters the zone number posted on nearby signs, selects the amount of time needed, and clicks “Start Parking” to begin the session. Users can also extend the time of the parking session on their mobile device.
“Since forming a partnership with Texas A&M, we’ve always seen traction in College Station. Now, we are also available in town, outside of the college campus,” says Jeff Perkins, CEO of ParkMobile. “The expansion to College Station further grows our large presence in Texas.”
