Edmonton EXPO Centre Selects ParkMobile for Contactless Parking Payments
New service provides visitors a safe and easy way to reserve and pay for parking at the Edmonton EXPO Centre
Edmonton, Alberta – March 2, 2021 – ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in North America, announced today a new partnership with the Edmonton EXPO Centre, the largest trade show and convention center in Western Canada. Visitors to the Edmonton EXPO Centre will be able to reserve parking in advance at over 3,800 spots, and there will also be a drive-up mobile payment option coming soon. As venues reopen amid COVID-19 concerns, contactless payments provide attendees a safer way to pay for parking without having to interact with an attendant, exchange cash, or touch physical hardware.
ParkMobile is the #1 parking app in North America and is available for iPhone and Android devices. To make a parking reservation at the Edmonton EXPO Centre, a user finds the venue in the ParkMobile app or website. It will show upcoming events with the available parking options. Once a parking reservation is made, it can be redeemed at the lot using a mobile pass in the ParkMobile app or a printed permit. For guests who do not reserve parking in advance, the Edmonton EXPO Centre will soon offer a drive-up contactless payment option with the ParkMobile app.
ParkMobile has a large base of users in Canada with availability in Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, Halifax, Victoria, and Winnipeg. Outside of Canada, ParkMobile is widely available across the United States in over 450 cities, including New York, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Columbus, and many more.
“Through regular surveying of our visitors and clients, we have consistently identified parking as an area where we can make the greatest impact on guest satisfaction,” said Olaf Miede, General Manager, Edmonton EXPO Centre. “As we elevate our health and safety protocols in response to COVID-19, contactless systems ensure a seamless parking experience and uphold our commitment to ensuring our venue is among the safest places to attend events.”
“We are proud to partner with the Edmonton EXPO Centre to provide a safe and easy way to pay for parking at the venue,” Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile, said. “Plus, you can now make a parking reservation in advance and have a guaranteed spot waiting for you.”
