ParkMobile, a 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 a 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.
