The City of Savannah today introduced ParkSavannah, the latest way to pay for on-street metered parking. The new ParkSavannah app makes parking easy by allowing users to purchase parking with a debit or credit card from their smartphone. Drivers no longer have to carry around change or run back to the meter.
The app was developed by global parking technology leader Passport, which powers the mobile parking apps for large cities like Boston, Toronto, Chicago, and Detroit. Passport pioneered the industry’s private label applications, delivering custom city-branded applications to numerous municipalities across North America and Europe.
“The launch of ParkSavannah is an exciting moment for our city,” said Sean Brandon, City of Savannah Mobility and Parking. “In this age of mobile devices, it’s important to offer these advanced payment options in order to accommodate as many of our customers as possible. With ParkSavannah, our drivers will have another way to pay, making their parking experience as convenient as possible. We’re confident that ParkSavannah will transform the way our customers park in the city.”
The app is now available to use to pay for parking sessions at the city’s multi-space meters and drivers will soon be able to pay at parking meters city-wide.
“We’re extremely excited to bring a mobile payment solution to the City of Savannah,” David Singletary, Vice President at Passport. “With ParkSavannah, users can conveniently navigate their parking experience with a few taps on their smartphone.”
Once registered with ParkSavannah, users will enter their parking space number and then enter their payment details. Each meter will have a ParkSavannah sticker with directions to use the app.
With the app, users can:
- Pay for parking
- Monitor their parking session
- Extend time remotely (up to the maximum allotted time)
- View payment history
- Receive email receipts
The new ParkSavannah app is free to download from the App Store and Google Play and through the mobile web at parksav.net.
