Get the Parkmobile App

 Download on the App Store  Get It On Google Play  Get it from Microsoft

 

To use the system, register online at http://us.parkmobile.io or download the mobile app. Once registered, use the mobile app, internet, or Parkmobile’s toll free number (877-727-5730) to pay for parking (Note: if you don’t have a “smart phone” you can still set up a Parkmobile account and pay for parking by calling the toll free number).

How to Pay by App

Park in any general parking space in the North, South, West garages or in the Park & Ride lot and look for the Parkmobile sign or sticker. If you don't see Parkmobile signage, use the app to locate the zone.

  1. Once registered, enter the zone number located on stickers and signs on meters or choose from nearby zones shown.
  2. Choose your parking duration (varies by location).
  3. Confirm your information, including location, license plate, time and cost.  Please Note: Entering your vehicle information correctly is vital to the process. If you enter your vehicle information incorrectly (especially your license plate), you may be subject to a ticket. So, please double check your information to make sure it is correct.
  4. A ticker will be displayed counting down your time remaining. You can extend your session remotely.
