City, ParkMobile Partner to Make Parking Easier than Ever

Santa Fe, NM—Santa Fe is bringing the convenience of mobile pay to parking this fall! The City of Santa Fe has entered into a partnership with ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the US, that will enable people to pay for parking on their mobile device.

 

The ParkMobile app is now available for use at all 1,145 on-street metered parking spaces in downtown Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Railyard.

 

New stickers and signage have been placed on meters with information on how to pay for parking using the new app. ParkMobile is free to download for iPhone and Android devices. Users can also register on parkmobile.io. After setting up their account, customers can immediately begin using the system with their registered mobile device. The ParkMobile app lets users remotely view and update/add time for their parking spot.

 

“We know this has been a sore spot for locals and visitors alike—and we care about addressing those concerns,” said Mayor Alan Webber. “We’re making parking in Santa Fe more user-friendly than it has ever been, with mobile pay convenience that takes the hassle out of scrounging for change or rushing back to a meter that might be running out of time.”

 

Over the first week of the soft launch the app was used successfully 569 times, at a total revenue of $1,790.00.

 

ParkMobile is a tested and effective service provider: it is the most widely-used mobile parking solution in the country, with more than 11 million users across 350 cities. ParkMobile is excited to bring these services to the City of Santa Fe.
