Louisville, KY – June 28, 2022 – ParkMobile, the #1 parking app in the U.S., has expanded its services in the City of Louisville, Kentucky, through a partnership with the Parking Authority of River City (PARC). Through the partnership, ParkMobile is available at 4,800 on-street spaces in town, making parking in Louisville an even easier experience.

“There are plenty of people who use ParkMobile in other cities and now they are able to use the same app when they visit us here in Louisville,” said Tiffany Peebles, Director of PARC. “We’re also excited about the new text to park and Google Maps payment options that ParkMobile provides. We think these will be great for folks who are new to mobile payments and may not want to download an app while they’re on-the-go.”

ParkMobile is used locally at University of Louisville and the Kentucky Exposition Center, as well as in other markets across Kentucky including Lexington, Bowling Green, and Richmond.

ParkMobile has over 36 million users across North America, is available for both iPhone and Android devices, or can also be accessed on a mobile web browser. To pay for zone parking using the mobile or web app, a user enters the zone number posted on signs around the parking spot, 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.

“We’re thrilled that PARC is partnering with us to offer even more mobile payment options in Louisville,” added Jeff Perkins, CEO of ParkMobile. “We look forward to helping the Authority reach its goals for mobile adoption and provide the best possible experience for their residents and visitors.”
