Greenfield introduces Passport Parking, a new and convenient way to pay for parking
Mobile app allows users to pay to park with their smartphones
Greenfield, Mass. (Dec. 13, 2019) — The City of Greenfield announces the launch of Passport Parking, a mobile app that facilitates payments for parking. The app is powered by Passport, the leading mobility platform for parking and transportation payments.
For the first time, residents and visitors in Greenfield will have the option to pay for parking with their smartphones. Signage and decals are displayed to guide drivers to where the Passport Parking app can be used.
In addition to being able to pay for parking through the app, drivers are able to:
- Extend their sessions remotely
- Keep track of all parking history
- Receive notifications
- Get email receipts
“Greenfield is a place where there’s plenty to explore right outside our front doors, including great dining, shopping, architecture and history,” said Mayor William Martin. “The Passport Parking app gives our residents and visitors a convenient option to drive into town and pay for parking from their smartphones.”
Drivers can easily download the Passport Parking app from the App Store or Google Play, create an account with an email address or phone number and enter their license plate and length of stay. If users want to park longer, they can extend time remotely right from their phones. Parking can also be managed online at passportparking.com.
“We’re excited to partner with the City of Greenfield and introduce another way to pay for parking,” said Mollie Bolin, sales executive at Passport. “One of the best features of the app is that it notifies users when their parking time will expire. Drivers can then extend their parking time directly from their smartphones up to the maximum allotted time.”
Passport is the No. 1 mobile pay provider in Massachusetts. Passport Parking can be used in cities across the state such as Cambridge, Newton, Pittsfield, Acton, Lowell and anywhere Passport Parking signage is displayed. Passport also supports the ParkBoston mobile app in Boston.
