PayByPhone Launches Contactless Parking at South Dakota State University




Brookings, South Dakota —The parking experience at South Dakota State University (SDSU) is getting an upgrade thanks to PayByPhone. The leading global provider of mobile parking payment solutions is now providing safe and convenient contactless parking for 70 parking spaces across three lots serving students, faculty, staff, and visitors. PayByPhone is sole parking payment provider for SDSU.


“We are excited to be expanding our contactless parking services for higher education across North America,” said Roamy Valera, CEO of PayByPhone. “PayByPhone is the leading provider of premium parking services for colleges and universities, and this partnership will allow us to help SDSU dramatically improve parking for their students, faculty, and staff.”


The oldest and largest university in South Dakota, SDSU is well-known for adopting technologies that help optimize operational efficiency while providing an improved and more convenient experience for their parking users.


PayByPhone is a hassle-free solution for over 43 million 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.
