“We are excited to work with ParkMobile, pay by phone industry leader, and implement a Village-wide pay by phone option. This partnership will expand current payment options and revolutionize the current parking operation as it has done for Glen Rock, Summit, Chatham and Montclair.”
“We are very happy to launch our mobile payment parking service in the Village of Ridgewood” said Cherie Fuzzell, CEO of ParkMobile, LLC. “This technology offers customers a new and better way to pay for parking and is truly beneficial to them, as well as the city.

Once registered, customers may use the mobile app, internet, or call a toll free number to pay for parking. After setting up their account, they can immediately start using the system with their registered mobile phone. This convenient service also provides customers the ability to receive alerts when their meter time is about to expire and use credit cards in locations that do not offer manual credit card payments. Meters accepting coins are still available except at the Chestnut Street Lot and some parking spaces at the Rt. 17 Park & Ride Lot.
