Bend, OR Digitizes Parking Management Through the Passport Operating System

City Deploys Cashless Parking, Digital Permits and Enforcement from One System

The City is leveraging the Passport Operating System to offer Passport’s mobile pay parking, parking enforcement and digital permitting solutions

The City of Bend is announcing its partnership with Passport, the transportation software company with the only end-to-end digital operating system for managing streets and sidewalks. The City is leveraging the Passport Operating System to offer Passport’s mobile pay parking, parking enforcement, and digital permitting solutions.

Passport Parking, Passport’s mobile application, allows users to initiate and manage parking sessions directly from their smartphones. With Passport’s digital permitting solution, parkers can manage long-term parking anytime and anywhere through a user-friendly portal. Both solutions allow drivers to safely manage and extend long or short term parking sessions remotely without the need to use coins or to touch parking hardware.

Delivering a seamless parking experience and ensuring the health and safety of every individual in our community is important to us,” said Parking Services Division Manager, Tobi Marx. “Offering Passport’s digital technology and experiencing one backend will streamline our operations and will provide our community with smarter and safer options for all of their parking needs.”

Passport partners with over 1,000 cities, including Portland and Eugene, OR, to simplify parking and mobility management. Deploying the Passport Operating System to manage all aspects of its parking means the City of Bend can house rules, rates, and restrictions for the curb in a central system that can be communicated to enforcement officers on the streets. Data for all payment methods flows through that same system, providing a holistic look at the parking ecosystem.

By leveraging Passport’s technology to increase revenues, reduce complexities and improve their customers’ experiences, the City of Bend is future-proofing its operations and is truly leading the industry,” said Sam Warnecke, Passport sales executive. “Passport is excited to be the City’s trusted partner for their parking and mobility management needs.”

The Passport Parking app is free to download from the App Store and Google Play. Users can also manage their parking online at passportparking.com.
