ParkMobile partners with Milwaukee and Little Rock for contactless parking payments

Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile

ParkMobile, a leading provider for on-demand and prepaid mobile payments for on- and off-street parking in the United States has announced a new partnership with The City of Milwaukee and the City of Little Rock, Arkansas, to promote contactless parking payments to minimise people touching the parking meters.

With the recent COVID-19 crisis, many city leaders are encouraging people to use the app versus the meter to prevent the spread of the virus.

Under the partnership, ParkMobile through its MKE Park app expects to help protect the safety of both the people paying for parking and the City’s workforce by reducing physical interactions by offering a safe and contactless payment option. The company’s smart mobility app is to be installed in parking meters at over 6,000 parking spaces around Milwaukee and 1,400 on-street parking spaces around Arkansas.

“The City of Milwaukee is pleased to partner with ParkMobile to provide our residents and visitors with an upgraded mobile parking app experience. The MKE Park app lets people quickly and easily pay for parking without touching a meter, which is safer for everyone,” said Mayor Tom Barrett.

The MKE Park app is free to download and compatible with both iPhone and Android devices. The workflow can be summarised as follows; users can enter the zone/space number found on nearby signage, set the duration of time they want to park, and touch the “Start Parking” button to begin their session. Users can also extend their parking session on their mobile device without having to go back to the meter. The app has been recently updated to include an intuitive new user interface, in-app chat support, and several other features for seamless usage.

“We’re committed to supporting the efficient and safe movement of daily traffic in our city, and ParkMobile enhances that mission by providing customers with contactless payments. Residents and visitors can now more easily travel downtown, whether for work or to explore Little Rock’s landmarks and attractions,” said Little Rock Public Works Director Jon Honeywell.

“As we navigate this uncertain time, we want to do everything we can to prevent the spread of the virus and maintain everyone’s health and safety. As ParkMobile’s reach expands and integrates with more cities, we are seeing a rise in contactless payments for parking,”  said Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile.

Founded in 2008, ParkMobile helps millions of people easily find and pay for parking on their mobile devices. The company is a leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in North America. People can use ParkMobile solutions to quickly pay for on-street and off-street parking without having to use a meter or kiosk.
