ParkMobile will expand the reach of their mobile parking payment services city-wide in Memphis, TN. The partnership between ParkMobile, Premium Parking, the Downtown Memphis Commission, and the City of Memphis began in March of 2021 with a pilot program to promote the turnover of parking spaces for local businesses while offering a convenient payment method for drivers.
The expansion follows pilots of mobile parking payments in select areas in the Edge District and Downtown. The partnership will now offer the contactless payment system in over 1,500 on-street parking spaces across Memphis through a suite of payment channels at existing on-street legacy meters – including smartphone apps from ParkMobile and Premium Parking as well as CameraPay’s scan-to-pay feature.
ParkMobile’s app (available for iOS and Android devices) allows users to pay for their parking by entering a zone number posted on signs around the parking spot. The user then selects the amount of parking time needed and begins the session accordingly. The app can also be used extend the time of the parking session. The app also provides its payment service to users based in Nashville, Chattanooga and Knoxville.
