Torrington, Conn. (Aug. 31, 2023) — Litchfield County’s largest city is continuing its partnership with Passport to offer simpler parking and smarter parking management. Beginning September 1, the Passport Parking application will be available for users to pay for parking seamlessly through their smartphones. With Passport’s platform in place, parkers have a convenient method to pay for parking and the City of Torrington is equipped with the most efficient, real-time parking management system on the market.
After downloading the free app from the App Store or Google Play, a user enters the respective zone number, license plate number and the desired length of time for parking. Users can receive notifications when their sessions are about to expire, extend their sessions remotely and view receipts and parking history. Users can also conveniently manage their parking online at passportparking.com.
“As demand for parking grows, it is essential that the City implements parking management solutions that support local businesses and the City’s revitalization efforts,” says Rista Malanca, Economic Development Director, City of Torrington. “Utilizing technology that was not previously available allows the City to offer a convenient, digital payment option for drivers looking to explore what Torrington has to offer.
