Application makes paying for parking efficient, convenient
Macon-Bibb, Ga. (July 13, 2018) — Macon-Bibb County announces the launch of PassportParkingⓇ, a mobile application that allows parkers 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 parking operations throughout North America.
In addition to being able to pay for parking through the app, users are also able to:
