PT Plus: Memphis, Tennessee Expands ParkMobile Partnership
MEMPHIS, Tenn., — ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., announced today the expansion of their mobile parking payment services city-wide in Memphis, TN. The partnership between ParkMobile, Premium Parking; the city’s parking operator of record; the Downtown Memphis Commission, and the City of Memphis began in March of 2021 with a pilot program initiated to help promote the turnover of parking spaces for local businesses while offering drivers a convenient way to pay. After piloting mobile payments in select areas in the Edge District and Downtown, the partnership has been expanded to offer the contactless payment system in over 1,500 on-street parking spaces city-wide. The partnership promotes improved accessibility and ease of use through a robust suite of payment channels at existing on-street legacy meters, including ParkMobile’s app, Premium Parking’s app, or CameraPay ‘scan to pay’ feature.
ParkMobile has over 30 million users and is available for iPhone and Android devices, or can also be accessed on a mobile web browser for those who do not want to download an app. To pay for parking using the mobile or web app, a user enters the zone number posted on signs around the parking spot, selects the amount of time needed, and touches the “Start Parking” button to begin the session. The user can also extend the time of the parking session from their mobile device.
