Answers To Questions We Know That You Will Have!
- You can STILL use the meters and your parkcard. Parkmobile is just another option for you.
- No, the meter will not register green if you are using the Parkmobile app, but the parking patrollers will know that you have paid through their own app!
- Parkmobile (either the app or pay by phone option) must be used at spaces where there is no meter or a meter is inop.
- If you use the one-off payment feature, you will be charged a $.35 convenience fee per session. If you use the Wallet, that fee drops to $.15 per session.
- Yes, you can still get a parking ticket, but hopefully the app will help prevent the dreaded expired meter ticket. All the other rules still apply. (Sorry!)
