The Village of Palos Park announced the launch of PassportParking® mobile parking application. The app is available at 318 commuter parking spaces throughout Palos Park Metra lot. The PassportParking app is powered by the global leader of mobile payments for parking and transit, Passport, serving cities and universities throughout North America.
The app will provide drivers with the convenience of making payments from their smartphone, which makes paying easier and reduces the chance of receiving a parking ticket.
In addition to paying for a parking session, customers can:
- Receive alerts when parking session is about to expire
- Extend parking sessions remotely
- View parking history
- Receive email receipts
- Get updates and alerts
The app also features a digital wallet, which provides parkers with the ability to pre-load funds using their debit or credit card to pay for parking. Parkers can add funds to their wallet in increments of $20.
“The PassportParking app provides a convenient and stress-free approach to handling the parking experience,” said John Mahoney, Palos Park Mayor. “Launching the parking app provides users with alternative options of payment so that they can quickly and easily pay and manage their parking sessions.”
“Passport is proud to partner with Palos Park and add a pay-by-cell option to the community,” said Mike Mohler, Project Manager at Passport. “We’re excited to provide a solution that brings a more convenient and innovative approach to parking.”
