Urbana Brings New Technology to Its Parking Meters with MobileMeter
Urbana, IL – The convenient MobileMeter app used to pay for parking in the City of Champaign is now available for drivers across the City of Urbana. The app, powered by industry-leading mobile payments provider, Passport, has seen great success in Champaign since its launch last year. The MobileMeter app makes parking payments easier by giving drivers a credit card option directly from their smartphone or tablet. Users can also keep track of available time, receive reminder notifications before the end of their parking session, and extend their parking remotely.
The MobileMeter app will be available in numerous metered parking locations throughout the City of Urbana.
“We’ve seen how quickly Champaign drivers have taken to the MobileMeter app,” said Vince Gustafson, Public Facilities Supervisor at the City of Urbana. “As we were making the decision to add this type of technology, it made the most sense for us to bring MobileMeter here to Urbana. We’re thrilled to offer this convenience to our customers.”
“MobileMeter will be very convenient for drivers traveling in and around the City of Urbana,” said Conor Kelly, Vice President of Sales at Passport. “It’s exciting when the flexibility of our private label applications allow us to provide these types of options for our clients.”
Users can get started by downloading the free MobileMeter app from the iPhone App Store or Android Google Play. Users can also register at www.mobilemeter.us.
