ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., announced a new partnership with the borough of Westwood, New Jersey, enabling residents and visitors to pay for parking on their mobile device. The ParkMobile app is now available at more than 800 on and off-street spaces throughout the borough. With the recent COVID-19 crisis, many municipal leaders across the country are encouraging residents and visitors to use the app instead of the meter to prevent the spread of the virus.
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 the stickers and signs around the meters. The user then selects the amount of time needed and touches the “Start Parking” button to begin the session. The user can then extend the time of the parking session right from the app, without having to go back to the meter.
ParkMobile has a large base of users in New Jersey and across the Tri-State Area.
There are currently over 1.6 million users in the state where the app is available in most major cities including Newark, Hoboken, New Brunswick, Jersey City, Asbury Park, Ocean City, Atlantic City, Cape May, Passaic, and more. Beyond the Garden State, the app can be used to pay for parking in over 400 cities across the U.S. and is widely available along the Northeast corridor from Washington, DC., to Philadelphia, to New York City.
“Westwood is very pleased to offer more parking payment options for our residents and visitors,” says Councilwoman and Westwood Parking Authority Liaison Cheryl Hodges. “By partnering with ParkMobile, we can offer a safe contactless solution that will allow people to pay without touching the physical parking equipment.”
“ParkMobile is excited to launch in another great New Jersey town,” 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."
