City of Lynchburg Launches Mobile Parking App PassportParking®
Passport chosen to provide parking payment app for City
Lynchburg, VA (October 6, 2017) — The City today announced the launch of PassportParking®, a mobile pay parking application. The app is powered by the global leader of mobile payments for parking and transit, Passport, serving cities and universities throughout North America. PassportParking will be available at over 400 off-street parking spaces throughout Lynchburg.
The pay-by-cell payment option showcases the City’s continuing efforts to provide more options that make paying for parking an easy and convenient method for downtown businesses and visitors. The PassportParking app will provide drivers with the convenience of making payments from their smartphone, which not only makes paying easier, but reduces the chance of receiving a parking ticket.
In addition to paying for a parking session, customers can:
- Receive alerts when parking session is about to expire
- Extend parking session remotely
- View parking history
- Receive email receipts
- Get updates and alerts
“Mobile payment is another option for City of Lynchburg to help make the parking experience stress-free and user friendly for our downtown businesses and visitors,” said Dave Malewitz, Parking Manager for the City of Lynchburg. “By integrating the pay-by-cell payment option into our already existing paid parking areas, we are continuing efforts to expand on our parking management initiatives, aimed at providing convenient, safe, and easy accessible public parking.”
“Passport is thrilled to partner with the City of Lynchburg and introduce our industry-leading mobile pay technology,” said Kelsey Owens, Sales Executive at Passport. “We’re excited to bring a mobile option to the City that seamlessly combines paying for parking to managing and extending a parking session in just a few taps.”
PassportParking is free to download through the App Store or Google Play. Users can also manage their parking at ppprk.com.
