Chicago Ridge Metra Location Rolls out Parking App

Chicago Ridge launches Passport app for daily Metra Riders




Chicago Ridge, IL- The Village of Chicago Ridge today announced the launch of a new app that will make parking easier at its daily commuter parking lots.


Chicago Ridge has introduced Passport, the leading parking payment app provider in North America, at its commuter daily parking locations. Passport’s app makes paying for Metra parking more convenient by allowing users to pay for and manage parking from their phones.


With Passport, users can quickly pay for daily parking, monitor their session, and view all parking history.


“With smartphones playing such a big part in our daily lives, we wanted to offer a mobile option that would help make the process of paying for parking more convenient. With Passport, Metra riders can not only pay for parking but also manage everything from their phones.”


Chicago Ridge is offering a universal validation code during the app’s launch. Users can enter the validation code 60415 into the app to receive one free daily rate of parking. This promotion includes the $1.50 daily parking rate as well as the $0.37 cent convenience fee for using the app.


Passport signage throughout the daily commuter locations will give instructions for downloading and using the app, including the daily commuter location’s zone number, 60415.


Passport was selected to provide this mobile parking payment solution for Chicago Ridge after successful launches in over 45 Chicago suburbs, including Evanston, Oak Lawn, Skokie, and Oak Park. Passport also developed ParkChicago, Chicago’s parking application.


The PassportParking app is free to download from the iPhone App Store and Android Google Play.  Users can also manage their parking online at ppprk.com.
