City partners with ParkMobile to bring Smarter Parking Options to Fresno

The City of Fresno is partnering with ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the United States, to enable drivers to pay for parking from their mobile device.  The ParkMobile app is now available for over 2,000 spaces around the City.

New stickers will provide information to drivers on how to pay for parking using the app.  ParkMobile is available for free for both iPhone and Android devices, or by registering at parkmobile.io.

After setting up their account, users can immediately begin using the system with their mobile device by entering the zone number posted on the meter, choosing the duration of time they’d like to park, and hitting the “Start Parking” button to begin their session.  The ParkMobile app also allows users the ability to view or add time to their parking session right from their mobile device.

ParkMobile has an established audience in California with parking available down the coast from the San Francisco Bay Area to San Luis Obispo and Los Angeles and across the nation in major cities like New York, Washington D.C., Chicago, and Atlanta.

“We’re thrilled to expand our network to Fresno,” says Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile.  “We want to provide every driver throughout California with a smarter parking experience that allows them to process their transactions using the ParkMobile app.”

“This the first of many exciting improvements for parking in Downtown Fresno,” says Thomas Gaffery, Parking Division Manager with the City of Fresno.  “We still have many more changes in store, including the launch of credit card enabled parking meters.”

ParkMobile is the most widely used mobile parking solution in the country with more than 16 million people using the app over 60 million times per year across over 400 cities.  ParkMobile is excited to make a difference leveraging its large network of users as it expands into Fresno.
