Just in time for summer, the City of New Buffalo, Michigan is launching a mobile pay parking solution with the Passport Parking app. Visitors to city beaches can download the app and easily pay for parking without needing to wait in a long line or pay for a full day of parking when not needed. At the same time, the city will be introducing a new parking enforcement software, also powered by Passport.
With the Passport Parking app, users can easily create an account and start a parking session. An added benefit is the ability to extend a parking session remotely, which means visitors don’t need to return to their cars if they chose a shorter parking session and can keep enjoying their time on the beach and can keep enjoying their time on the beach. Users can also access receipts and parking history through the app.
“Summertime in New Buffalo is a great time of year, as residents and visitors get to enjoy the beautiful weather and all the other amenities the city has to offer. This year, spending time at the beach will be even better with our new streamlined parking solution,” said New Buffalo police chief Rich Killips “With the Passport Parking app, people can spend more time with their friends and family on the beach and less time worrying about paying for a full day of parking when it may not be needed. This will allow everyone to pay for a shorter period of time so they can come and simply enjoy the food and beach offerings without having to pay for a whole day of parking”
In addition to the Passport Parking app, the city will also be using Passport’s parking enforcement software. The real-time platform enables enforcement officers to quickly see if a car has paid to park and to issue a citation, if necessary. The city can also utilize the platform to track parking trends, enforcement officer routes and revenue growth.
“We are excited to partner with the City of New Buffalo and provide a great parking solution for visitors and for enforcement officers,” said Marcell Allmond, sales executive at Passport. “With our mobile pay parking app and enforcement software, the city is well-equipped to manage the influx of visitors this summer and beyond.”
Passport works with hundreds of clients around the world, including many in the region, such as Grand Rapids, Detroit, Ferndale and Michigan State University. Drivers can download the free Passport Parking app from the App Store or Google Play.
