Out of Los Angeles today, LA Metro announces the official launch of MetroParking, its all-new mobile parking payment solution.


Commuters, as of today, can now make seamless payments for parking using their smartphone device.


MetroParking is operated by Passport, the global leader in mobile payment apps for parking and transit, serving large metropolitan cities such as Chicago, Toronto, Miami, Portland, Boston, and Westminster in London.


Passport is also responsible for powering mobile payments in multiple park and ride’s in the Chicago metropolitan area.


The MetroParking app will offer parkers the ability to easy pay for parking with their TAP Card number, license plate, and payment information.


Boasting a user-friendly interface, commuters will be able to take advantage of getting to their heading, minus having to visit a payment kiosk or meter.


“Los Angeles is a world-class city, providing excellent transportation options for residents and visitors. Offering a fast and easy way for commuters to pay for parking was the next step in adding convenience for our customers. Passport was the perfect partner to bring a holistic technology solution to L.A. given its ability to deliver large-scale and successful operations,” said Frank Ching, Senior Director of Countywide Parking Management at Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro).
