Pango Mobile Parking, a comprehensive pay by phone payment and parking management system, has seen tremendous success just one month after its implementation in Scranton, PA. Since May 28th, 3,000 Pango parking sessions have been tracked, more than 700 parkers have signed up for the mobile parking payment solution, and 10 merchants have enrolled in the Pango Merchant Program facilitating the technology’s innovative location-based mobile advertising platform. Further illustrating Pango’s effectiveness, Chattanooga, TN, a city of 170,000 residents adopted a similar mobile parking payment model, but only 323 pay-by-phone transactions were documented during the first month of adoption - compared to 3,000 in Scranton

“Scranton parkers, city officials, and downtown merchants have fully embraced Pango and applaud its convenience and simplicity,” said Dani Shavit, CEO of Pango Shyyny USA, the Pango licensee in PA, MD and Washington D.C. “These numbers illustrate the ease with which Pango can be seamlessly integrated in any city, large or small.”
