MONTPELIER, Vt., Feb. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- ParkMobile, the #1 parking app in the U.S., announced today a new partnership with Montpelier, Vermont, enabling residents and visitors to pay for parking on their mobile device. The ParkMobile app is now available at more than 600 on and off-street spaces throughout the city. With the recent COVID-19 crisis, municipal leaders across the country are encouraging residents and visitors to use the app instead of the meter to prevent the spread of the virus.
"Montpelier is very pleased to offer more parking payment options for our residents and visitors," says Montpelier City Manager, William Fraser. "By partnering with ParkMobile, we can offer a safe contactless solution that will allow people to easily pay without touching the physical parking equipment."
"We're thrilled to launch the ParkMobile app in Montpelier," says Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile. "We have a large base of users in the local area who can now pay by app whenever they visit the city."
The ParkMobile app is the #1 parking app in the U.S., with over 22 million users, and is available for both iPhone and Android devices. ParkMobile can also be accessed on a mobile web browser for those who do not want to download an app. To pay for parking using the mobile or web app, a user enters the zone number posted on signs around the parking spot, 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.
ParkMobile has over 1.2 million users in the New England area and is widely available in cities like Burlington, VT, Greenwich, CT, Portsmouth, NH, and Amherst, MA. Beyond New England, the app can be used to pay for parking in over 450 cities across the U.S., including New York City, Washington, D.C., Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, and Miami Beach.
