ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., is now offering contactless parking reservations at Ohio University. This football season, students, faculty, and visitors will be able to reserve parking via ParkMobile in 500 off-street spaces in advance of games. Ohio University has been using ParkMobile for zone parking on campus so the integration of reservations should be a seamless transition for the Athens and university community.
ParkMobile has over 28 million users, is available for both iPhone and Android, and can be accessed on the web at https://parkmobile.io/. Reserving a parking space is quick and easy. A user can go to https://app.parkmobile.io/venue/peden-stadium/events to view a full list of upcoming events with all the available parking options. To make a parking reservation, a user searches for the event venue in the ParkMobile app or website and selects the space they’d like to park in. After the user books the reservation, it can be redeemed at the location using a mobile pass in the ParkMobile app or a printed permit. Parking reservations are currently available for the Ohio University vs Kent State game on Oct. 23.
ParkMobile’s collaboration with Ohio University expands the company’s footprint in the state where there are currently over 513,000 users. The app is also used in Columbus, Cincinnati, and Cleveland and other midwestern cities such as Chicago, Indianapolis, and Madison.
“We’re excited to be utilizing ParkMobile’s reservation feature to help eliminate traffic congestion on gameday,” says Tia Hysell, Director of Transportation & Parking Services at Ohio University. “ParkMobile is already used across campus, so our football fans and guests are already familiar with the app and will be able to enjoy their visit without stressing about day-of parking.”
“Ohio University is a new market for us and further adds to our growing list of colleges and universities on the platform” adds Jeff Perkins, CEO for ParkMobile. “Our reservation tool is a great way to keep campus traffic-free on gameday, so we are thrilled to have Ohio University as part of our team.”
