Mobile Payment App Launched For City Parking
A contactless payment option for parking has launched in the city.
The new software has been developed by Passport, which is a company designed to help manage cities’ parking and mobility infrastructures through a digital platform.
Passport Parking will offer an alternative option for people to pay for their parking. Instead of paying at a parking meter, motorists will be able to digitally pay for parking on a secure app.
“To begin a session in the app, a user enters the respective zone number (posted on nearby signage and decals), parking space number and the desired amount of time for parking,” the city said in a press release.
People will be able to extend their parking times, access their parking history, and keep track of their digital receipts directly on their mobile devices, eliminating the need for people to return to the parking meter to extend their parking time.
“With Passport’s digital platform, we can provide residents, workers and tourists another option to pay for parking downtown, while also effectively managing multiple aspects of our parking operations under a single, centralized system,” Mayor Eddie Sundquist said. “With this launch we can simplify the parking experience and can continue to make Jamestown a great place to live, work and recreate.”
The city of Jamestown will also be enforcing its parking operations through Passport Parking. The software provided by Passport will allow the city to collect all mobility data and manage the city’s parking rates and policies under one system.
The Passport Parking app is available for users to download free on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. Mobile parking can also be managed online at passportparking.com.
