Amid COVID-19 concerns, members of the HSSU Campus Community and visitors will have the option to pay for parking with a mobile app.
St. Louis, MO – January 4, 2020 – ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., announced today the launch of service at Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis, Missouri. Students, faculty, and visitors will be able to use the ParkMobile app to pay for parking at nearly 600 spaces in the parking lots around campus. With the recent COVID-19 crisis, many University leaders are encouraging the school community to use contactless payment options to prevent the virus’s spread.
ParkMobile is the #1 parking app in the U.S., with over 20 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 parking space. 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.
“This will improve the university parking experience for our visitors as well as the faculty, staff, and students.”
The launch of ParkMobile at Harris-Stowe State University expands the company’s footprint in Missouri. There are over 386,000 ParkMobile users across the state with availability in St. Louis, Kansas City, Columbia, as well as several universities including Saint Louis University and Missouri University of Science and Technology. Beyond the state, the ParkMobile app can also be used to pay for parking in over 400 cities across the U.S. like Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, Washington, DC, and many more.
“We are pleased to offer the ParkMobile app as an easy and safe way to pay for parking around campus,” said Chief Eric Sullivan. “This will improve the university parking experience for our visitors as well as the faculty, staff, and students.”
“ParkMobile is excited to add Harris-Stowe State University to our network in Missouri,” says Jon Ziglar, ParkMobile CEO. “We have hundreds of thousands of users in the state who will now have a convenient way to pay for parking when they visit the campus.
