City Introduces Pay by Cell Phone App ParkMobile
On August 1, the City of Walnut Creek, in partnership with Parkmobile, LLC, launched a pay by phone option for all 1,500 parking meters downtown. Customers can pay to park on-the-go using Parkmobile’s app for iPhone, Android, Windows, Amazon, and Blackberry phones, or by calling the toll-free number on the green meter stickers.
Customers first must register by downloading the mobile app in their phone’s app store or online at www.parkmobile.com. Once registered, they may use the mobile app, Internet, or the toll-free number listed on green meter stickers to pay for parking. After setting up their account, customers can immediately start using the system with their registered mobile phone.
You simply enter the zone and meter number located on the green meter sticker, select the amount of time you would like to park, and “start parking.” The app allows parking sessions to be extended by phone without returning to the meter as long as the parking session has not hit the hourly limit. There is a $0.35 convenience fee paid by parking customers. The city plans to add the ability to use Park Mobile in the city’s three garages in the future. For more information about how to register and use the app, please visit www.parkmobile.com.
