Town of Wellesley Selects PayByPhone to Offer a

Better Parking Experience



VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – July 17, 2020 – PayByPhone, a global leader in Contactless Parking payments, is expanding its service footprint in the metro Boston area. The Town of Wellesley, located outside of the city, is now offering the PayByPhone app to create a safer, and more efficient parking experience for both the town’s residents and visitors.


PayByPhone is available for 300 on-street and 955 off-street spaces throughout Wellesley’s three major business districts. The introduction of PayByPhone to the Town of Wellesley comes just in time for the town’s reopening of their parking operations, to assist them in providing a safe and reliable payment method for their drivers.


“While the Town of Wellesley is just outside of the hustle and bustle of metro Boston, it is home to several colleges and has played a significant role in many of the city’s major events like the Boston Marathon,” said Kathryn Rumsey, Senior Accounting Clerk for

Parking and Collections at the Town of Wellesley. “We needed a world-class parking app to match the world-class experiences we offer in our community, which is why we selected PayByPhone.”


PayByPhone is a hassle-free solution for 30 million registered drivers, allowing them to pay for parking with just their smartphone. The app sends text messages automatically when a parking session expires, and gives drivers the ability to extend their parking session without needing to return to their vehicle. Drivers can also begin a session without registering for an account, making it ideal for those who are pressed for time.


“The Town of Wellesley has such a historic and vibrant community, we are incredibly proud that PayByPhone was selected to help modernize and improve the parking experience for residents and visitors,” said Roamy Valera, CEO of PayByPhone.
