By offering a cashless, contactless payment option for parking, users can easily and safely manage their parking sessions without having to touch meters and risk the spread of germs.

“Especially amid the pandemic, the safety and health of our residents and visitors is a top concern for Fort Myers Beach,” said Town Manager, Roger Hernstadt. “This ongoing partnership with Passport means we can continue to provide a safe and convenient method of payment for those enjoying their time at the beach.”

Over 1,200 cities and universities are supported by the Passport Operating System to manage vehicle interactions on their streets and sidewalks. Passport supports other Florida cities, such as St. Augustine, Delray Beach and Cocoa Beach.
