ParkMobile, the #1 parking app in North America, is extending its popular contactless parking solutions to the University of South Florida St. Petersburg campus after much success at the university’s Tampa campus. The integration provides students, faculty, and visitors a safe, contactless, and flexible way to pay for parking from any mobile device. ParkMobile will be accessible for on-demand parking at approximately 1,200 spaces across four off-street parking lots.
ParkMobile has over 28 million users and is available for both iPhone and Android, and can be accessed on the web at https://parkmobile.io/. To pay for parking on campus, users simply enter the zone number for their location, which is posted on signs and stickers around parking areas. Then, they select the amount of time they need and touch the “Start Parking” button to pay and begin their session. Users can also add more time to their parking session directly from their mobile device, further enhancing convenience.
ParkMobile’s partnership with the University of South Florida St. Petersburg expands the company’s footprint in Florida, where there are currently over 3.8 million users of the app and 37 active venues. Florida is ParkMobile’s third most popular state, behind Texas and California. St. Petersburg residents are already familiar with ParkMobile services with over 462,000 current users. Other South Florida cities utilizing the app include Miami Beach, West Palm Beach, Tampa, and Sarasota. Beyond the state, the app can also be used to pay for parking in over 450 cities and 140+ colleges and universities across the country.
“After seeing the success of ParkMobile’s easy-to-use, contactless payment system at our Tampa campus, it was only fitting to extend the partnership to the St. Petersburg campus,” said Randy Pogue, Parking Services Manager for USF’s St. Petersburg campus. “ParkMobile provides a simple and convenient method for parking on campus.”
“We love seeing our already active ParkMobile colleges expanding the services to their other campuses,” adds Jeff Perkins, CEO of ParkMobile. “In a year where contactless experiences are at their utmost importance, we are excited to continue seeing colleges and universities utilize our services to keep their campus safe.”
