ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., announced today the launch of a new service at The University of Texas at Austin. The University has been using ParkMobile for event parking over the past few years. Now students, faculty, and visitors will be able to use the ParkMobile app to pay for parking at over 3,000 spaces around campus. ParkMobile replaces the MobileNOW! app that shut down in May due to business impacts related to COVID-19.
ParkMobile is the #1 parking app in the U.S. with over 20 million users and is available for both iPhone and Android devices. To pay for parking with the ParkMobile app, a user enters the zone number posted on stickers and signs around the parking space. The user then 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 without having to return to the meter or pay station. 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’s partnership with The University of Texas at Austin expands the company’s footprint in the state where there are currently about 1.5 million users of the app. ParkMobile is already widely available in Austin and other major cities throughout the state, including Dallas, Houston, Fort Worth, and El Paso. The app is also available at many other Texas Universities including Texas A&M, University of North Texas, Sam Houston State, and Southern Methodist University. Beyond the state, the app can also be used to pay for parking in over 400 cities across the country.
“ParkMobile is excited to expand service at UT Austin,” said ParkMobile CEO, Jon Ziglar. “We have nearly 1.5 million users in Texas who will now have an easier way to pay for parking when they visit the campus.”
