Charlottesville, VA – January 2, 2018 — Parkmobile, LLC and the city of Charlottesville announced today the launch of the Parkmobile app, which allows customers to use their mobile devices to pay for parking in the city at approximately 105 on-street parking spaces.
The parking meter pilot program was launched on September 5th as a tool for better managing mobility in the downtown area. The program, which covers 105 on-street parking spaces surrounding the mall, is part of the city’s Parking Action Plan. Additional on-street parking remains free outside of the signed pilot area and the first hour of parking is free at the Market Street Parking Garage. Visitors staying longer than 2 hours are encouraged to use the parking garage.
To use Parkmobile, customers can register for free through the app for iPhone, Android, and Windows phones, or online at parkmobile.com. After setting up their account, customers can immediately begin using the system with their registered mobile device. App users may also choose to receive a reminder prior to the expiration of their parking session, and if the maximum parking time has not been reached, parkers can even extend their time from the app. Enforcement officers will be able to see that a motorist has paid with Parkmobile using a wireless handheld device and the user’s license plate number. Additionally, multiple payment methods are offered through the app, including Masterpass, PayPal, Visa Checkout, Chase Pay, Parkmobile Wallet, and Apple Pay.
