MobileNOW!, a leading global innovator for mobile payments in parking, has launched a license plate-based, virtual permit system for campus visitors. The project is underway with the start of the Spring 2015 semester.
The MobileNOW! app allows users to pay for parking quickly and easily via their preferred payment method with a few clicks on a smart phone. The app also allows users to manage their parking session remotely and to receive alerts when time is about to expire or a parking session needs to be extended.
The system is expected to appeal to visitors and others who are not on campus regularly.
More than half of the University’s 40,000 students commute to the main, 420-acre campus in downtown Arlington, Texas.
The MobileNOW! implementation is part of UT Arlington’s commitment to making parking on campus easier. The system already is in place at The University of Texas at Austin and Texas Tech University.
“We are delighted to welcome our third large Texas university to MobileNOW!,” said John Oglesby, MobileNOW! President. “We look forward to working closely with UT Arlington to promote the electronic permit program, and we congratulate the University for being an early adopter for this technology.”
