Lafayette, LA June 17, 2021 — ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., announced today the launch of service in the city of Lafayette, Louisiana, offering a contactless payment option at over 1,200 on-street and off-street parking spaces.

The user can also extend the time of the parking session on their mobile device.
“Our community is thrilled to bring ParkMobile to Lafayette. This is a huge step forward in how we utilize technology to make public parking a more convenient experience,” says Anita Begnaud, CEO of Lafayette’s Downtown Development Authority. “As COVID cases decline and more people are coming downtown to work, eat, shop, and worship, this contactless option is a safe and easy way for our residents and visitors to pay for parking.”
