Pottstown, PA Picks ParkMobile for a Smarter Way to Park - May 1, 2019

The ParkMobile app is now available at approximately 400 on-street and off-street spaces across the Borough.

New stickers and signage will
provide information to drivers on how to pay for parking using the new app. ParkMobile is free to download and available for both iPhone and Android devices. Users can additionally register on parkmobile.io. After setting up their account, customers can immediately begin using the system with their registered mobile device. Customers without smartphones also have the option to pay by credit card by dialing 877-727-5714.

With the ParkMobile app, users simply enter the zone number posted on the ParkMobile sticker or sign, choose the duration of time, and touch the “start parking” button. ParkMobile sends alerts when a parking session is about to expire so a user can easily extend time right from the app without having to rush back to the meter. In Pottstown, the first hour of on-street parking is free when using the app.

“We are excited to offer payment methods through ParkMobile providing residents and visitors with a modern, convenient and user friendly options to locate, purchase and extend public parking sessions remotely,” says Pottstown Borough Manager, Justin Keller. “The Park Mobile platform will enhance efficiencies in several Borough departments, and its flexibility allows us to offer one hour of free parking for on street metered parking spaces located in the downtown.”

“We’re thrilled to expand our network to Pottstown,” says Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile. “We are proud to provide drivers across Pennsylvania with a smarter parking experience as they travel between destinations.”

In all Borough owned public parking lots, patrons will have the flexibility to purchase parking through ParkMobile or as done currently through payment kiosks or honor boxes 7 days a week from 6:00 AM to 2:00 AM with no maximum time limit.  On street parking located along High Street (see map) will utilize ParKMobile as the sole payment method 7 days a week from 6:00 AM to 2:00 AM and will include THE FIRST HOUR FREE within a 3-hour maximum time limit.  Parking rates for all metered parking zones are $0.50 per hour.  A fee of $0.35 per transaction will be charged to those utilizing Park Mobile payment options.  The transaction fee will not apply to the “first hour free” for on street metered zones located along High Street, however patrons must register with ParkMobile in order to take advantage of this feature and to avoid parking violations.  Paid parking will not be implemented along the King Street corridor at this time. Over the next several months, the Borough looks forward to rolling out ParkMobile as a payment option for residential and business parking permits as well.

ParkMobile is the most widely used mobile parking solution in the country with more than 13 million users across over 370 cities. With ParkMobile’s current customers using the app over 60 million times per year, ParkMobile is excited to make a difference in more places as it expands its network to Pottstown.
