Parkers in Gettysburg can keep their change! Gettysburg has launched Passport, North America’s leading provider of mobile payments for parking and transit, to the Borough’s 1,100 parking spaces at all on and off-street locations. Passport’s solution allows parkers the convenience of paying for parking right from their smartphone or tablet. This way, parkers don’t need to worry about carrying change to feed the meter or rushing back to add more time.
“Passport will be a great solution for the parking environment in Gettysburg,” said Alexandra Wells, Sales Associate at Passport. “With all of the visitors to the area, drivers will enjoy how easy it is to get started with the app as well as the convenience of not having to walk up to the parking meter.”
Charles Gable, Borough Manager of Gettysburg agrees, stating, “A successful mobile payment program means 21st century parking infrastructure improvements that provide ease and convenience for over 2 million visitors each year.”
Once a user begins a parking session, a visual countdown timer will display available time in order to help avoid a parking citation. In addition, users can extend their parking session remotely, keep track of all parking history, and validate parking at participating merchant locations.
The PassportParking app is free to download from the iPhone App Store and Android Google Play. Users can also manage their parking online at http://m.ppprk.com.
