ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., announced today a new partnership with the Parking Authority of the City of Elizabeth, New Jersey, enabling residents and visitors to pay for parking on their mobile devices. The ParkMobile app is now available at nearly 2,000 on and off-street spaces throughout the city. ParkMobile replaces the MobileNOW! app that shut down last year due to business impacts related to COVID-19.
The ParkMobile app has over 24 million users and is available for both iPhone and Android devices. ParkMobile can also be accessed on a mobile web browser for those who do not want to download an app. To pay for parking using the mobile or web app, a user enters the zone number posted on signs around the parking spot, selects the amount of time needed, and touches the “Start Parking” button to begin the session. The user can also extend the time of the parking session on their mobile device. ParkMobile offers all the same features and functionality as MobileNOW! but has a better user experience and is available in many more locations in the immediate area and across the country. Other differences include ParkMobile’s 24/7/365 customer service and additional payment options like PayPal and Apple Pay.
ParkMobile has a large base of users in New Jersey and across the Tri-State Area. There are currently over 1.7 million users in the state where the app is available in most major cities, including Newark, Hoboken, New Brunswick, Jersey City, Asbury Park, Atlantic City, and more. Beyond the Garden State, the app can be used to pay for parking in over 450 cities across the U.S. and is widely available along the Northeast corridor from Washington, DC., to Philadelphia, to New York City.
Carla A. Mazza, Executive Director, Parking Authority of the City of Elizabeth, stated, “Last month, the Parking Authority of the City of Elizabeth partnered with Passport parking and now, ParkMobile will be available also, as another option for parkers in the City of Elizabeth. Parkers in Elizabeth now have a choice when using their phones to pay for parking.”
“ParkMobile is excited to expand our presence in New Jersey with the launch of the City of Elizabeth,” says Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile. “We are available virtually everywhere you go in the Garden State, making it safe and easy to pay for parking.”
