PassportParking® lands in Plymouth
Town adds the mobile parking app for convenience
Plymouth, Mass. (April 2, 2018) — Park Plymouth announces the launch of the PassportParking® mobile application that allows motorists to pay for their parking through their smartphones. The app is powered by the global leader of mobile payments for parking and transit, Passport, serving cities and universities throughout North America.
The PassportParking app makes paying for parking a cinch. Users can securely pay for parking within the comfort of their vehicle instead of standing in the cold at a meter. They can also monitor their parking sessions, receive alerts before their parking sessions expire with an option to extend their time, view payment history and receive email receipts. In addition to using the PassportParking app, drivers will have the option to use Boston’s ParkBoston app, also powered by Passport.
The PassportParking app will support the town’s growing residential and tourist population with access to 355 on-street parking spaces and 800 off-street spaces in the downtown and waterfront areas of Plymouth. Residents and guests will easily be able to recall the town’s zone number, 1620, for its historic reference to when the Mayflower arrived in Plymouth Harbor. Other zones will include 1621, 1622 and 1623. The rate for parking will be $1 per hour.
“This upgrade to PassportParking will allow guests to easily tour America’s hometown and enjoy their stay longer when they extend their parking sessions from their smartphones,” said Desmond Egan, Park Plymouth Manager.
“We’re excited about our new partnership with Park Plymouth,” said Alexandra Wells, Passport executive. “Plymouth hosts a lot of visitors in this historic town, so it is essential to have a reliable app that will give people an opportunity to explore the town at their leisure. Our app makes sightseeing on your time ultra convenient.”
