The City of Fort Collins today announced the launch of the FC Parking mobile application. The app was created by Passport, the global parking technology leader who powers the parking apps for large cities like Boston, Toronto, Chicago and Detroit.
“It is really important for us to make parking as easy as possible,” said Craig Dubin, communications and administration manager at the City of Fort Collins. “By partnering with Passport to launch FC Parking, we are bringing a more convenient way to pay for parking at the new Firehouse Alley Garage.”
The app is now available to use to pay for parking sessions at over 200 parking spaces and drivers will soon be able to pay at parking meters across the city.
The FC Parking app makes parking easy by allowing users to purchase parking with a debit or credit card from their smartphones. Drivers no longer have to carry around change or run back to the meter. In addition to paying for parking, users can monitor their parking sessions, extend parking time remotely, view payment history, and receive email receipts.
“We are proud to bring our mobile payments technology to Fort Collins,” said Phil Endres, sales executive at Passport. “With FC Parking, users can conveniently navigate their parking experience with a few taps on their smartphones.”
The FC Parking app is free to download from the App Store and Google Play. Users can also manage their parking online at parking.fcgov.com
