ParkMobile Partners with Colorado State University to Extend Contactless Parking Payment Options on Campus



Students, faculty, and visitors have the option to skip the pay station and pay for parking via mobile app



Fort Collins, CO – January 26, 2021 – ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., announced today the launch of service at Colorado State University. Students, faculty, and visitors will be able to use the ParkMobile app to quickly pay for parking in hourly designated campus parking areas and on the first floor of both campus garages.


ParkMobile is the #1 app in the U.S., with over 21 million users, and is available for both iPhone and Android devices. To pay for campus parking with the app, a user enters the zone number posted on signs in the designated parking areas, selects the amount of time needed, and touches the “Start Parking” button to begin the session. The user can also extend the time of the parking session on their mobile device without going back to the pay station. Additionally, the ParkMobile app will not accept payment outside of designated paid parking hours on the CSU campus, helping those who mistakenly try to pay for parking when it is not required.


The launch of ParkMobile at Colorado State University expands the company’s footprint in the state. There are currently almost 800,000 users of the app in Colorado with availability in Denver, Boulder, Winter Park, Telluride, Manitou Springs, Steamboat Springs, and Colorado Springs. Additionally, the app can be used at the University of Colorado Boulder and Colorado Springs campuses, University of Denver, and Auraria Higher Education Center. Beyond Colorado, the app is accepted in over 400 cities across the United States.


“Colorado State University is excited to welcome our students and faculty back from winter break and offer a new mobile option to pay for parking around campus,” says Dave Bradford, Director of CSU Parking and Transportation Services. “With ParkMobile, we are improving the overall parking experience at the University.”


“We are thrilled to partner with Colorado State University to provide contactless parking payments,” says Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile. “We have hundreds of thousands of users in Colorado who will now have a safe and easy way to pay for parking when they visit the campus. Go Rams!”

Fort Collins, CO (November 30, 2016)—Colorado State University has been recognized as the Innovative Parking Organization of the Year by the National Parking Association (NPA). The award is presented each year to an organization that demonstrates cutting edge expertise, smart city innovation, and advancement of technology in the parking industry. CSU was recognized for its pioneering approach to promoting sustainability through the university parking program, as well as the introduction of a groundbreaking parking guidance program utilizing industry-leading INDECT technology.


“This is a tremendous honor for Colorado State University and our parking program,” said Doug Mayhew, Associate Director of Parking and Transportation for the university. “The university is committed to promoting sustainability, and our parking program is playing an important role in making CSU greener.  We are gratified to have our efforts recognized by the parking industry.”


As the first university in the world to earn Platinum rating from AASHE STARS, Colorado State University leads the nation’s universities in sustainability best practices.  It was also named America’s “greenest” university in 2015 by BestColleges.com. Situated along the western edge of the Great Plains at the base of the Rocky Mountains, CSU is home to the first solar-heated/air-conditioned on-campus building and has also worked with NASA to develop a cloud-profiling radar system that monitors climate change.


CSU’s parking guidance system features INDECT parking sensors in each of the university’s two parking structures. The Lake Street Parking Garage has a combination of single space and multi-space sensors monitoring all 870 spaces, and the South College Avenue Garage utilizes INDECT sensors to manage all 663 of that facility’s spaces. The sensor network records parking space occupancy, advises parkers of real time parking availability as they approach the garage, and guides them to open spaces. The sensors also collect data about length of stay, occupancy, and usage for each of the different user groups at the garage, which the university uses to enhance its parking policies and procedures.



INDECT is the leading provider of parking guidance systems. INDECT’s systems combine the most advanced parking space sensors with industry-leading data management technology to offer drivers a safer, more convenient parking experience while helping parking owners operate their parking assets more efficiently and profitably.
