Passport earns recognition on the Inc. 5000 for fourth consecutive year

Transportation software and payments company celebrates 172% revenue growth during a three-year period

Charlotte, N.C. (Aug. 17, 2021) Today, Inc. magazine released its 40th annual Inc. 5000 list, which showcases the fastest-growing private companies in North America, ranking Passport at 2,446. The 11-year old company is the second-fastest growing software company in Charlotte, with this year’s listing marking Passport’s fourth consecutive year on the list. Cities, universities and private operators of all sizes trust Passport’s digital platform to manage their parking and mobility infrastructure to create more liveable, equitable communities. 

Despite the challenges brought on by the pandemic, the growth of 172% from 2017 to 2020 is a clear reflection of the company’s dedication to nurturing strong client relationships while  building and launching top-quality solutions. In that same time period, Passport expanded its footprint across North America, processed nearly $2B in mobility payments and opened its APIs to allow third party-providers to plug into its digital platform.

“It is an honor to be selected by Inc. magazine and ranked among some of the most empowering and innovative companies in the world,” says Passport CEO David Evans. “This recognition demonstrates the hard work of our growing organization and our commitment to scale our platform, so that we can continue to equip cities with the tools they need to help solve their most pressing problems.”

Passport continues to focus on the needs of its clients base thanks to the expansion of services through fundamental partnerships. Following its initial launch in Austin, TX, Passport announced an expanded integration with Google in February 2021 to enable parking payments within Google Maps on a nationwide basis. More recently, the company broadened its offerings to cities such as Flagstaff, AZ and Portland, ME, and announced its partnership with Barnacle to improve enforcement at the curb.
