88% of U.S Drivers Avoid Paying for Parking, New Study Reveals

 

 

According to a survey conducted by the most used parking app in the U.S., ParkMobile, 75% of drivers have been deterred from going out because of bad parking despite 85% of spaces sitting empty

 

ATLANTA, Feb. 27, 2024  — ParkMobile, the most used parking app in the U.S. and part of the EasyPark Group, conducted a survey to understand the parking experiences of U.S. drivers. The study highlights the frustration that drivers experience because of poor parking infrastructure, with 88% of drivers seeking to avoid paying for parking. With search times taking around 10 minutes on average, the difficulty of finding and paying for parking deters 75% of drivers from traveling or attending social experiences.

Study respondents also highlighted removing uncertainty from the parking journey would be a positive draw for consumers. Among drivers that avoid paying for parking, 67% would be willing to pay if a parking space was able to be reserved in advance. When asked about coordinating these reservations, 84% of respondents who have used more than one mobile parking app in the past year would prefer one app to handle all their parking needs, including reserving mass transit and event parking. ParkMobile’s offerings have already catered to this consumer demand by providing parking reservation for street parking, garages, and stadium events.

“American cities are filled with both overtaxed city-center parking in high demand and sprawling underused garages and surface lots that are often constructed without information about the parking experiences of modern consumers,” said Chris Camp, Chief Commercial Officer of EasyPark Group. “These choices negatively impact traffic, the environment and urban vibrancy, and should be considered as part of a holistic approach to building sustainable city cores. At ParkMobile, we are dedicated to making cities more livable and we feel data insights are one way to make more informed consumer decisions and better planned infrastructure.”

Inconsistent rules and parking payment systems increase difficulty for drivers and disincentivize engaging with parking infrastructure. While 88% of respondents state they rarely pay for parking, sentiment towards paid parking changes if additional context can be provided. If paid parking ensured improved transportation, including improved bike lanes, 70% of respondents would be willing to pay. Additionally, the survey highlights that almost half of respondents (46%) are unaware that free parking is funded through local resident taxes and 64% of respondents would be more willing to pay for parking if it meant lower taxes.

“ParkMobile, as a part of EasyPark Group, has seen the need to advance parking infrastructure through technology and insights. As part of this advancement there is the opportunity to educate drivers and municipalities about the realities of their existing parking ecosystems and what is possible for the future. Implementing models of open market parking and offering Parking Data as a Service provides streamlined engagement with parking technology and is a step toward improving cities’ relationships with parking,” said Camp.

Since being founded in 2008, ParkMobile has processed over 120 billion minutes of parking in North America. ParkMobile works with cities to provide real-time parking data and trends to better plan their urban design. This includes some of the two million parking spaces across the country, in over 600 cities and municipalities and 140 colleges and universities.

The study was conducted by ParkMobile with over 2,000 respondents located across the U.S. Respondents included drivers of various ages that drive at least two days per week on average to represent those most aware of their parking experiences.

Flowbird: Charleston, SC Updates Its Parking System with Effortless Digital Solutions

Flowbird: Charleston, SC Updates Its Parking System with Effortless Digital Solutions

 

 

New touchscreens and mobile payment options offer faster convenience

 

 

Charleston, SC — The City of Charleston, South Carolina has announced an exciting upgrade to its parking system in partnership with Flowbird Group, the leader in curbside management and urban mobility solutions. The City is updating its parking system with modernized touch-screen pay-by-plate parking kiosks, fully equipped with the industry’s latest technology. Additionally, the City will be offering two new digital payment options, the Flowbird mobile payment app and Pay-by-Text! The upgrade is a part of City’s continued efforts to enhance the customer service experience with a modernized solution.

The updated parking system will feature solar-powered parking kiosks with a 9.7” full color touch display available in all City-owned surface lots. The touch screen display has the look and feel of a tablet, walking users step-by-step through the transaction process.

The new parking kiosks will introduce a ‘pay-by-plate’ parking system. This means that users will no longer be required to return to their car to display a receipt on the dashboard. Instead, all they need is their license plate.

“The City of Charleston is excited about the opportunity to upgrade our parking meter technology to improve the parking experience for our citizens and those who visit our wonderful city,” said Director of Traffic and Transportation Robert Somerville.

The City is also excited to announce the release of two other digital parking solutions, the Flowbird Mobile Payment App and Pay-by-Text!

The Flowbird App allows patrons to pay for parking from their mobile devices, receive text notifications when time is about to expire, and extend their time without having to visit a parking kiosk. Designed as a true mobility app, the Flowbird App features a map-based user interface, integrated with Waze and other navigation systems to guide users to their preferred parking location.

The app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play Store.

Pay-by-Text is an easy-to-use web-based solution that allows drivers to pay for their parking session directly from their phone – without creating an account or downloading an app!

By implementing modernized parking solutions with convenient payment options, the City will be able to better manage parking turnover and visitor influx during peak periods and provide a more user-friendly experience. The addition of digital payment options will bring a consistent and higher level of customer service to the parking public.

ParkMobile: U.S. Drivers are Eager for a Mobile Payment Solution for Parking to Reduce Driving-Related Stress

September 22, 2023

 

U.S. Drivers are Eager for a Mobile Payment Solution for Parking to Reduce Driving-Related Stress

 

 

According to a survey conducted by the most used parking app in the U.S., ParkMobile, over 74 percent of U.S. drivers desire a smart parking payment experience

 

 

 

Atlanta, GA – – ParkMobile, the most used parking app in the U.S. and part of the EasyPark Group, conducted a survey tracking the parking habits and trends of U.S. drivers. According to the study, 82 percent of drivers across the U.S. note that searching for a parking space is a top stressor when driving in urban environments. Though, of the drivers using parking apps such as ParkMobile to find and pay for parking, drivers’ stress levels drop by nearly 33 percent.

The study found that concerns of paying for parking, including searching for ticket locations when using parking kiosks or meters, are drastically reduced through the integration of mobile payment apps and providers. ParkMobile is expanding its footprint and providing solutions that help drivers find and reserve parking in advance via the reservations platform to create an easier parking experience to meet the demand of the 74 percent of drivers craving the availability of a mobile parking payment solution.

“Searching for parking in dense downtown ecosystems is not only harmful for the environment through increased carbon dioxide emissions but stressful and will ultimately tamper the way drivers view and interact with their cities in the future,” said David Hoyt, managing director of ParkMobile. “Through the integration and adoption of ParkMobile, we’re making cities more livable through our easy-to-use mobile parking solution, so downtowns thrive and residents and visitors feel stress free.”

The report also found that around 80 percent of respondents find it important to be able to use the same parking app across multiple locations and states. Despite this, around 30 percent of respondents are unable to use their preferred mobile payment app for parking across the country as the apps are not always accepted at their parking location. The lack of choice and availability has resulted in many drivers having three or more parking apps installed on their mobile devices to pay for parking in the U.S.

“As part of EasyPark Group, ParkMobile is working to adopt an open market solution, a process that our company has integrated in key cities across Europe. The solution allows for multiple app-based parking providers to be offered in a city, making parking more straightforward while fostering parking technology innovation and placing consumer choice as the top priority. An open market parking model is a key contributor to digital adoption and can drive mobile pay adoption to over 90 percent in cities where it is implemented,” said Hoyt.

Since being founded in 2008, ParkMobile has processed over 98 billion minutes of parking in North America. ParkMobile works with cities to provide real time parking data and trends to better plan their urban design. This includes some of the two million parking spaces across the country, in over 600 cities and municipalities and 140 colleges and universities.

The study was conducted by ParkMobile with over 3,000 respondents located across the U.S. Respondents included drivers aged 16-75 as a representative sample of over 261 million monthly parkers in the country.
