New Parking App Can be Used at On-Street Meters Along Hillsborough Street
Pilot Program Allows Easier Parking Payments
The City of Raleigh announced the debut of a pilot program that will allow drivers to purchase metered parking from their phones.
Drivers can download the PassportParking app and securely pay for metered parking using a debit/credit card. The app, which has also been available at the North Carolina State University campus since 2015, allows users to monitor their session, extend parking remotely (up to the maximum allotted time), and view all parking history.
The new parking app is being introduced as an easier, more convenient option for drivers to pay for and keep track of their parking. Users can manage everything from their phones while also helping avoid parking citations.
As a part of the city’s four-month pilot program that begins on November 3rd, the app will be available at on-street parking locations in the Hillsborough Street area where signage is displayed. The area includes Hillsborough and Oberlin Streets to Hillsborough and Concord Streets and some adjacent side streets. Passport signage will indicate how users can download and get started with the app.
