PayByPhone Celebrates Unprecedented Success in 2020



VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA  – PayByPhone, the world’s leading mobile parking payment company, celebrated unprecedented success in 2020, launching in 19 new locations across North America. In addition, PayByPhone Maps, an important technological improvement, was introduced to 149 locations. The parking guidance tool allows drivers to use the app to find available parking spaces. The maps are interactive and allow users to determine hours of operation and parking restrictions, making parking that much faster, safer and more convenient.


“As proud as I am of our success over the past year, I’m even prouder of how PayByPhone and our people have excelled as true partners in the communities we serve,” said Roamy Valera, CEO North America. “Through our focus on partnership, we have worked closely with the municipalities, universities, and private lot operators to address their unique needs and create programming that truly benefits people in those communities.”


In this year of the Covid pandemic, some of PayByPhone’s most important programs revolved around promoting public health, as well as the economic health of the communities the company serves. To that end, PayByPhone introduced specialized programming to help communities reopen safely after Covid-19 outbreaks forced city-wide shutdowns and programs such as Miami’s “We are where you dine” program, which supported restaurants that were impacted by the pandemic.


The PayByPhone app is NOW available to drivers in:

  • Cleveland, Ohio
  • Albuquerque, New Mexico, in partnership Zevaz LLC
