ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., announced a new partnership with Platinum Parking in Cleveland, Ohio, to provide contactless parking payments at over 3,100 off-street spaces around the Theater District, Progressive Field, and throughout the city. Amid the COVID-19 crisis, many cities and parking leaders are encouraging residents to use the app instead of touching the pay stations to prevent the spread of the virus.
ParkMobile is the #1 parking app in the U.S. and is available for both iPhone and Android devices. To pay for parking with the app, a user enters the zone number on stickers and signs posted around the lot, selects the amount of time needed, and touches the “Start Parking” button to begin the session. The user can also extend the time of the parking session on their mobile device without having to go back to a pay station.
ParkMobile has a large user base in Ohio with over 300,000 users. The app is widely available throughout the state in the cities of Columbus, Dayton, Toledo, Cincinnati, and more. The app can also be used to make parking reservations for concerts and sporting events at FirstEnergy Stadium, Progressive Field, and Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Beyond Ohio, the ParkMobile app can also be used to pay for parking in over 400 cities across the U.S. including Pittsburgh, Washington, DC, Indianapolis, Chicago, St. Louis, and many more.
“Platinum Parking is excited to introduce the ParkMobile app to our locations in Cleveland,” says Troy Mayer, General Manager of Platinum Parking. “This contactless payment option is a safe and easy way for our customers to pay for parking.”
“This new partnership with Platinum Parking expands ParkMobile’s availability in Cleveland,” says Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile. “We have a large base of users in the area who will be able to use one app for contactless parking payments wherever they go.”
