The City of Westminster and Passport today announced the launch of the new ParkRight parking app that will improve the way drivers pay for parking throughout Westminster.
The refreshed ParkRight app was developed by global transportation software leader, Passport, and was designed in order to refine the Westminster parking payment experience. With Passport’s expertise, the ParkRight app is premiering a new user-friendly app flow, including an enhanced ‘find parking’ feature and improved payment process. With these updates, ParkRight will better meet the needs of residents, visitors, and city officials.
“ParkRight is symbolic of the next chapter in Westminster parking,” said Kieran Fitsall, Head of Service Improvement & Transformation and City Management & Communities of the City of Westminster. “The new ParkRight app is a powerful mobile platform customized to our city’s specifications. The new system will ensure an easier process for finding and purchasing parking, while also providing our officials with the data to make more informed decisions. Passport’s leadership in private label parking applications has made them an ideal partner for the City of Westminster.”
“Passport is very excited to collaborate with the City of Westminster on this new technology initiative,” said Khristian Gutierrez, Chief Business Development Officer at Passport. “Our applications are designed to address the needs of each city we work with, which will be apparent in the new ParkRight app. Users will find that searching for, purchasing, and managing their parking are now seamless processes. We look forward to continuing to develop our relationship with the City of Westminster as we expand the new app’s functionality to fit the community’s needs.”
The update of ParkRight signals the City’s desire to bring the latest in technology and have a platform that will help future proof them in the years to come. The initial launch will support availability at all Westminster on-street parking bays.
With the new ParkRight app, users can:
- Search and find available parking
- Pay for parking
- Monitor their parking session
- Extend parking (up to the maximum allotted time)
- Receive email receipts
The new ParkRight app is free to download from the App Store and Google Play. Users can take advantage of the app where ParkRight signage is displayed.
