University of Massachusetts expands ParkMobile partnership to the Lowell campus to offer contactless parking solutions

ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., is expanding its contactless parking services to The University of Massachusetts Lowell. The expansion comes after much success on the UMass Amherst campus. Amidst COVID-19, drivers now have a safe and flexible way to pay for parking from any mobile device at UMass Lowell visitor parking lots. Between the UMass Amherst and Lowell campuses, there are over 12,000 ParkMobile spaces.

ParkMobile has over 29 million users, is available for both iPhone and Android, or can be accessed on the web at To pay for parking on campus, users simply enter the zone number for their location, which is posted on signs and stickers around parking areas. Then, they select the amount of time they need and touch the “Start Parking” button to pay and begin their session. Users can also add more time to their parking session directly from their mobile device, further enhancing convenience.

ParkMobile is widely available in Massachusetts with close to 420,000 current users of the app and 29 dedicated venues. Other New England cities using ParkMobile include Amherst, MA, Northampton MA, Holyoke, MA, Bar Harbor, ME, and Montpelier, VT. Beyond the state, the app can also be used to pay for parking in over 450 cities and over 100 universities and colleges across the country.

“After seeing the success of ParkMobile’s easy-to-use, contactless payment system on our Amherst campus, we’re pleased to extend our partnership to UMass Lowell,” says Jon Victorine, who leads parking services for UMass. “ParkMobile gives our students, employees and visitors a safe, easy-to-use method for parking on-site and we look forward to growing our partnership with them.”

“We love seeing our already active ParkMobile universities expanding their services to other campuses,” adds Jeff Perkins, CEO of ParkMobile. “In a time when contactless experiences are pivotal, we are excited to continue seeing colleges and universities use our services to keep their campus safe.”
