New Lenox Launches Passport Mobile App for Metra Parking


Mobile app lets drivers pay for parking at off-street Metra lots

New Lenox, IL- The Village of New Lenox is announcing an innovative new way for drivers to pay for parking. Drivers can now use Passport, a mobile pay app that allows users to pay for parking from their phones. This new mobile option will be available at the New Lenox Metra Lot and the New Lenox Laraway Road Metra Lot. This launch partners the Village of New Lenox with Charlotte, NC-based Passport and Downers Grove, IL-based Total Parking Solutions.

Passport is the leading mobile payments provider for parking and transportation, and has launched in large cities like Boston, Chicago, and Toronto. Passport has also launched mobile solutions in over 15 Chicago suburbs, including Evanston, Oak Lawn, Skokie, and Oak Park.

With Passport, there’s no need to carry around cash for the cash box or meter — everything can be managed from your phone. After making a payment, users can monitor their parking with the countdown timer in the app and even extend their session remotely if needed (up to the maximum allotted time).

“We’re thrilled to be launching our mobile solution in New Lenox,” said Michael Rafferty, Vice President of Enterprise Implementations at Passport. “Our app will let users quickly pay for parking so they can get on the Metra without spending time at the cash box or meter. We’ve delivered excellent service across Illinois and we continue to lead in launches along the Metra line because of it.”

When paying for parking at the New Lenox Metra lot, users will enter zone number 60451. At the New Lenox Laraway Road Metra Lot location, users will enter zone number 940.

The PassportParking app is free to download from the iPhone App Store and Android Google Play. Users can also manage their parking online at
