ParkMobile, the #1 parking app in the U.S., expanded its services to the City of San Luis Obispo, California earlier this year. Through the app, users can pay for on-demand parking at close to 1,200 on and off-street spaces around town.
“We’ve been focused on growing our mobile parking payment providers and are excited to welcome ParkMobile and their easy-to-use, touchless services to San Luis Obispo,” said Gaven Hussey, Parking Program Manager for the City of San Luis Obispo. “Visitors and guests to our city will be able to locate ParkMobile’s information on parking meters and signage around the parking space and use the app’s seamless mobile payment system to pay for parking.”
Though this is the municipality’s first partnership with ParkMobile, the app is active at locally based Cal Poly State University. Additionally, California is one of ParkMobile’s most popular states with over 2.7 million users. ParkMobile is currently available throughout the state, in cities such as Los Angeles, Newport Beach, Berkeley, San Francisco, San Jose, San Diego, and more.
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.
“California is booming right now with ParkMobile launches, and we’re thrilled to add another West Coast city to the roster,” added Jeff Perkins, CEO of ParkMobile. “San Luis Obispo launched in over 1,000 spaces city-wide, making them a great new partner and market for ParkMobile.”
