Haverhill Debuts Passport Mobile Parking App
New mobile app makes parking easier for Haverhill drivers
May 11, 2016- Haverhill is introducing a new way for city drivers to pay the parking meter. The city is launching Passport, the leading mobile pay provider for parking and transportation, to all on and off-street parking locations.
Passport will make city parking easier by giving drivers an additional option of payment besides cash or swiping a credit card. Using their secure Passport account, drivers can pay from their phone and even extend their parking (up to the maximum allotted time) without walking back to the meter.
Passport powers the ParkBoston mobile pay app in the City of Boston as well as the mobile pay solutions in Salem, Acton, Springfield, and Newburyport.
“We’re looking forward to giving our residents and visitors this tech-friendly option for parking payments,” said James J. Fiorentini, Mayor of Haverhill, MA. “Utilizing this app gives parkers the flexibility to pay for parking as well as extend their parking stay. Our goal is to make parking convenient and easy to use for our residents and visitors.”
“We’re very excited to be launching our mobile pay app in the City of Haverhill,” said Bob Youakim, CEO at Passport. “This will be a great convenience not only for drivers in Haverhill, but for travelers from nearby cities like Boston, Salem, and Newburyport.”
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.
Passport reinvented the parking industry with the launch of private label payment platforms. Today, the company is North America’s largest mobile technology company specializing in enterprise business applications and payments for the public and private sector. Passport’s product lines–parking payments, transit payments, enforcement and permit management–collectively serve to deliver dynamic tools for agencies to better connect with their communities. Their services have been adopted by over 30 of the top 100 cities in North America and over 2,000 locations including Chicago, Toronto, Boston and Portland. Passport’s mission is to reduce operational complexity and deliver intelligent data to improve decision making for its clients.
