ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in North America, announced today the launch of the Park 915 app in the City of El Paso. This new app will replace the Park El Paso app effective in early May as new stickers and signs are posted on meters around the city. The Park 915 app enables people to easily pay for on-street parking right from their mobile device and is now available at nearly 2,000 parking meters concentrated in Downtown and Uptown around El Paso.
“We are excited to partner with the City of El Paso on the new Park 915 app,” says Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile. “With over 800,000 ParkMobile users in Texas, we’re providing people with a smarter way to park as they travel throughout the state.”
Users of the old Park El Paso app, powered by Passport will have to download the Park 915 app for iPhone or Android devices and create a new account. The ParkMobile app will also be accepted in the city.
To pay for parking using the Park 915 app, users simply enter the zone and space numbers posted on the stickers and signs around the meter, choose the duration of time they wish to park, and touch the “start parking” button. The Park 915 app will send alerts when the parking session is about to expire so a user can extend time right from the app.
Additionally, the Park 915 app shows a map view of where the available parking spots are in the city so that people can avoid the areas with no parking and drive directly to the streets where there are open spots, saving time and frustration.
With the launch of the Park 915 app, ParkMobile continues to expand its presence in Texas. ParkMobile already has almost 800,000 users in the state with the service currently available in Dallas, Houston, Austin, Fort Worth, Amarillo, Texas A&M University, and University of North Texas. ParkMobile also offers event parking reservations at major sports and entertainment venues across the state including BBVA Compass Stadium, NRG Stadium, Minute Maid Park, Kyle Field, and McCombs Field.
“Park 915 provides a much better user experience, showing people in real time exactly where the available parking spots are in the city so that people can avoid the areas with no parking and drive directly to the streets where there are open spots, saving time and frustration. The new app allows users to pay right from their phones and receive alerts when the parking sessions are about to expire,” International Bridges Department Director David Coronado said.
