ParkMobile, the #1 parking app in the U.S., is expanding into Jacksonville, Florida this spring as city enacts mobile parking payments for the first time. With nearly a million residents already, Jacksonville is also growing as one of the top U.S. cities for in-migration. Through the partnership, users will be able to pay for on-demand parking at close to 1,500 on-street spaces around town.
“As we continue to see unprecedented growth and development in downtown Jacksonville, there is a notable need for convenient parking,” Mayor Lenny Curry said. “We are excited about our partnership with ParkMobile as it will make it easier for residents and visitors to frequent this portion of our city.”
Florida is one of ParkMobile’s most popular states with almost five million users. The app is widely available throughout the state serving Orlando, the St. Petersburg areas, and numerous locations in South Florida, including one of the app’s most successful markets, Miami Beach.
ParkMobile has almost 35 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.
“Jacksonville is one of our target market launches right now due to the city’s population, year-round popularity as a vacation destination, and our already incredible following in Florida,” adds Jeff Perkins, CEO of ParkMobile. “We’re honored that Jacksonville chose ParkMobile to institute city-wide mobile parking payments.”
