“We applaud the Village of Lake George for pursuing this idea, especially now when touchless experiences are so important. It’s just another way we are working to protect our community and visitors against the spread of COVID-19.”
Lake George, NY – July 21, 2020 – ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., announced today a new partnership with the Village of Lake George in New York to allow residents and visitors to pay for parking on their mobile device. The ParkMobile app will be available at more than 650 metered on-street spaces and in off-street lots throughout the city during the summer season. With the recent COVID-19 crisis, many city leaders are encouraging residents and visitors to use the app instead of the meter to prevent the spread of the virus.
ParkMobile is the #1 parking app in the U.S. with over 19 million users and is available for both iPhone and Android devices. To pay for parking with the ParkMobile app, a user enters the zone number posted on the stickers and signs around the meter. The user then selects the amount of time needed and touches the “Start Parking” button to begin the session. The user can also extend the time of the parking session on their mobile device, without having to go back to the meter.
ParkMobile has a large presence in the state of New York and across the Tri-State Area with over 3 million users in the region. In New York State, the app is available in Buffalo, Rochester, Ithaca, White Plains, Syracuse, New York City and more.
