ParkMobile, the #1 parking app in the U.S., has expanded into Spokane, Washington, becoming the city’s exclusive parking provider. ParkMobile has also been named the city’s official Mobile Parking Payment System Integrator as selected through a competitive procurement process. Users are now able to pay for on-demand parking at 5,000 on-street spaces in Spokane.
“ParkMobile supports our strategy to provide a technologically advanced system for Spokane by providing a convenient and touchless payment option,” says the City of Spokane’s Parking Services Director, Luis Garcia. “Now, ParkMobile is available for all city paid parking spaces, which benefits our parkers by increasing the efficiency of our program and providing a contactless experience.”
This year, ParkMobile is prioritizing integrating mobile parking payment systems for cities like Spokane and expanding the company’s availability for app users in the Pacific Northwest region.
ParkMobile has over 41 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 their parking session right from their mobile device if it is within the time stay limit.
“Spokane is a key partnership for us as we’re working towards increasing our availability in the region and introducing new mobile parking payment systems,” adds David Hoyt, ParkMobile’s Chief Revenue Officer and Managing Director, North America. “With thousands of ParkMobile spaces now live, this is a big market.”
