Transportation software and payments company Passport is innovating with Way.com to offer drivers more convenient ways to pay for parking. Beginning today, motorists in Omaha, Neb., can pay for on-street parking using the Way.com app.
Here’s how it works: To initiate an on-street parking session, a user opens the Way.com application and searches for nearby parking by entering their city or location. Next, the user enters their parking space number (or license plate number, depending on the location), vehicle information and length of stay. Users can also manage and extend their parking sessions and access parking history and receipts.
“This partnership with Passport allows us to strengthen our parking vertical and connect our users with more payment options,” says Way.com Co-Founder and VP of Sales, Bhumi Bhutani. “Now, Way.com users who have been using the app for off-street parking have the option to conveniently access on-street parking as well.”
The added feature starts rolling out today in Omaha and will become widely available across additional cities in the coming weeks.
“Integrating Passport’s technology into Way.com makes it easier to find and pay for parking,” says City of Omaha Parking & Mobility Manager, Ken Smith. “The City of Omaha and its parking division have always had a strong focus on creating frictionless parking experiences and this partnership helps continue to support that.”
Passport helps more than 800 municipalities, universities and private operators streamline their parking operations in one place and use mobility data more efficiently and effectively. To learn more about how Passport supports cities’ mobility infrastructure, visit the company website.
