ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the United States, has launched a new partnership with the City of St. Cloud. The new mobile integration features the ability for residents and visitors to skip the meter and make contactless parking payments directly from their mobile devices. The ParkMobile app will be available at more than 3,000 parking spaces throughout the City’s downtown area, with more than 2,000 of these parking spaces situated in the parking ramps.
ParkMobile is available for both iPhone and Android devices and has over 19 million users in the United States. To pay for parking with the ParkMobile app, a user enters the space/zone number posted on the stickers and signs around the parking stall. The user then 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, without having to go back to the meter.
ParkMobile has a large presence in Minnesota and across the Midwest. There are over 650,000 users of the mobile app in the state of Minnesota. In the City of Minneapolis, ParkMobile also powers the MPLS Parking App which will be available in St. Cloud as well. Beyond Minnesota, the app can be used in 400 cities across the U.S. and is widely available in the Midwestern cities of Milwaukee, Chicago, St. Louis, Indianapolis, and more.
“St. Cloud is pleased to offer a user-friendly contactless parking payment option that gives users the ability to now pay with a credit card on their mobile device,” says St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis. “By partnering with ParkMobile, we are providing a safe and convenient way for people to pay for parking without touching the meter.”
“We are excited to welcome St. Cloud to our network in Minnesota,” says Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile. “Now people can use the ParkMobile app or the MPLS Parking app to safely and easily pay for parking wherever they go in the state.”
