Charleston, WV – August 4, 2021: ParkMobile, the leading parking app in the United States, announced today its partnership with Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center, the biggest event arena and convention center in West Virginia. With the ParkMobile app, visitors of the venue can now reserve their parking in advance of concerts and events. This convenient option is available just in time for the fans of James Taylor and His All-Star Band, who have held onto their tickets since the pandemic disrupted their concert in 2020. The event has been rescheduled to this Friday, August 6th, at the Charleston Coliseum, where they will be in the company of very special guest Jackson Browne.
Reserving a parking space at Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center is quick and easy. A user can go to https://app.parkmobile.io/venue/charleston-coliseum-convention-center/events to view a full list of upcoming events with all the available parking options. Users can filter the parking options for specific needs like room for oversized vehicles and more. The user can then reserve a space, which can be redeemed at the parking lot or garage on the day of the event using a mobile pass or a printed permit. Reservations can also be made through the ParkMobile app on both iPhone and Android devices. Pricing for parking will vary based on the event. Parking reservations are currently available for James Taylor on August 6th as well as a dozen more events throughout the rest of the year.
ParkMobile ranks as the #1 parking app nationally, with more than 25 million users, and currently provides parking reservations at some of the top entertainment venues in the U.S., including Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, State Farm Arena in Atlanta, GA, and Spectrum Center in Charlotte, NC.
“This new partnership with ParkMobile will make parking easier and create a better guest experience for everyone who visits the Coliseum and Convention Center.”
