Kansas City Launches New Mobile Payment App ParkSmartKC

- The Passport-powered App Makes it Easier to Digitally Pay for Parking
Kansas City

Beginning today, drivers will use a new app to pay for parking in downtown Kansas City called ParkSmartKC. The app, developed by mobility management platform, Passport, can be used to digitally pay for parking at more than 1,500 on-street parking spaces and 5,000 garage and surface lot spaces in the city. The ParkSmartKC app is replacing the previous mobile pay app, ParkMobile.

To get started with ParkSmartKC, drivers can download the app and create an account with their payment information. When drivers park in downtown Kansas City, they can start parking sessions on their phones and add additional time remotely when the session expires. Drivers can also access receipts and parking history.

We are excited to partner with Passport on the launch of the ParkSmartKC app,” said Bruce Campbell, parking administrator for the City of Kansas City. “Our ultimate goal is to make it easy for drivers to locate and pay for on-street and off-street parking and the app is an important step on that journey.”

Passport powers software for parking operations for 1,000 clients across the U.S. including Jefferson City, Mo., Clayton, Mo., and Chicago. Beyond mobile pay parking applications, Passport also provides software for digital parking enforcement, digital permits and a robust back-office management platform.

With ParkSmartKC, we are providing a more customized experience for drivers in the Kansas City area,” said Nathan Berry, vice president of enterprise sales at Passport. “The new app is branded to match the entire parking operation for the city and makes it easier for drivers to identify and use the app.”

Users can download the free ParkSmartKC app from the App Store and Google Play or manage parking online at ParkSmartKC.com.
