Reserving a parking space is quick and easy. A user can go to the “reserve” tab of the ParkDSM app to view a full list of upcoming events with all the available parking options. To make a parking reservation, users search for the event venue in the ParkDSM app and select the space they’d like to park in. After the user books the reservation, it can be redeemed at the location using a mobile pass in the ParkMobile app or a printed permit.
“The ParkDSM app uses the same incredible technology as ParkMobile, so we’re thrilled to see the City of Des Moines add another one of our features to their city-branded parking app,” adds David Hoyt, Chief Revenue Officer and Managing Director, North America for ParkMobile. “We look forward to continuing our expansion across Iowa and the Midwest Region.”
