Collingswood now offers touchless parking through ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the United States to enable drivers to pay for parking from their mobile devices. The ParkMobile app is now available at hundreds of spaces around the Borough.
Stickers and signage on meters, kiosks and at businesses will provide information to drivers on how to pay for parking using the app. ParkMobile is available for free for both iPhone and Android devices, and users can additionally register on parkmobile.io. Information on parking and how to use the app is also available on Collingswood.com here.
After setting up an account, customers can immediately begin using the system with their registered mobile devices. Users simply enter the zone number posted on nearby signage, choose the duration of time to park, and hit the “Start Parking” button to begin their sessions. The ParkMobile app gives users the ability to pay for parking on-the-go by allowing them to remotely view and update or add time to their parking sessions – right from their mobile devices.
“We were working on finalizing pay-by-app prior to the pandemic and with New Jersey opening up and guests returning to our businesses this is a wonderful way to remain safe while visiting Collingswood,” said Collingswood Mayor James Maley. “There was a lot of excitement about this option when we tested it out in the winter.”
ParkMobile has a growing audience in the Northeast with parking available in major cities such as New York City, Boston, and the nearby Philadelphia. The app is also widely available throughout other New Jersey markets, such as Newark and Jersey City, as well as the beach communities of Asbury Park and North Wildwood.
ParkMobile is the most widely used mobile parking solution in the country with more than 17 million people using the app over 60 million times per year across over 400 cities. ParkMobile is excited to make a difference leveraging its large network of users as it expands into Collingswood.
