Coming soon, people will be able to skip the meter and pay for parking on their mobile device
Portsmouth, NH – February 5, 2019 – ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the US, announced today a new partnership with the City of Portsmouth that will enable residents and visitors to pay for parking from their mobile devices. The ParkMobile app will be available beginning February 15that 800 on- and off-street parking spaces around the city. ParkMobile is free to download and available for both iPhone and Android devices.
There will be new signage posted around the city’s parking meters with information on how to pay for parking using the app. Auser simply enters the zone number posted on the ParkMobile sign, chooses the duration of time, and touches the “start parking” button. ParkMobile sends alerts when the parking session is about to expire so a user can extend time right from the app.
The City of Portsmouth will also offer a resident parking discount program where qualified residents receive $0.50 off the hourly rate. Click here to learn more and apply for the discount program.
ParkMobile is already available in Keene and in major cities across New England like Boston, Amherst, New Haven, Stamford, and Burlington, Vermont. ParkMobile’s expansion into Portsmouth gives people more places where they can use the app across the region. Additionally, ParkMobile already has 78,000 users in the New England area who will be able to use the app when they visit Portsmouth.
