Simple to use, customers pre‐register at www.parkmobile.com setting up a virtual wallet account with a minimum deposit of $25. Parking fees will be deducted from the account. When the balance reaches $5, the account will automatically be replenished.
After setting up the account, customers can immediately start using the system with their registered mobile phone.
"Parkmobile is very excited to launch our mobile payment parking service in Summit," said Albert Bogaard, CEO of Parkmobile USA, Inc. “With this technology, customers no longer have to search for change or wait in line at their destination. Our mobile payment service is an example of another technology that can make our lives easier and more efficient.”
In Summit, the program is offered at all municipal parking locations and at all street meters. Parkmobile’s innovative technologies and services will enhance the experience of motorists. Parkmobile’s pay by phone is an ideal parking option, and is simple and convenient. You can
start your parking transaction from your car without ever going to the meter or payment machine.
Summit’s Mayor Ellen Dickson commented “Summit is dedicated to delivering parking services as hassle free as possible. The pay by cell mobile app is a big step in that direction. I hope you will explore this advanced technology.”
Summit’s Parking Services Manager, Rita McNany, stated, ”Summit is excited to offer pay‐by‐ cell payment option to our customers and visitors. It’s an easy way to pay for parking. Parkers simply scan a QR code, enter a zone and space number and their parking is being paid for. We encourage everyone to set‐up a virtual wallet account with Parkmobile and simply Park, Scan and Go!”
Sign‐up for another great feature with Parkmobile to receive a text message or email to be alerted when their time is running out. As long as the parker does not exceed the established
time limit where parked, parking time may be extended right from their phone.
Summit is absorbing Parkmobile’s per transaction convenience fee for its customers in order to
encourage parkers to use this simple payment system.
Marketing materials and signage will be posted at all parking locations. Visit the City of Summit’s website at www.cityofsummit.org for more Parkmobile information Scan the QR code to download your Parkmobile app today.
