PangoUSA Launches Nationally in Two of Top 10 U.S. Cities
Pango, the Israel-based company that launched the world’s first pay-by-phone parking service, has announced that two of the top ten
U.S. cities, by population, will be experiencing the convenience of Pango for the first time as the interactive app goes live in New York City and Phoenix.
Neil Edwards, President of PangoUSA, said that it “gives consumers a convenient and easy way to park using their phone. Cities and parking operators can increase their revenues, lower their operating costs, and actually know who their customers are. And businesses can reach consumers with local offers through the app.
“Pango invented and patented the science behind pay-by-phone parking, and we are excited to deliver our exceptional service to consumers and cities across the United States,” Edwards said.
In New York City, PangoUSA will partner with Imperial Parking, which is the largest privately owned garage company in the city. It offers valet-based parking at its 110 garage locations around the city. Pango also is integrated with Ticketech, a garage ticketing system.
With the Pango app, the consumer parks his car; starts the online parking meter; then, when wanted, can order the car through his phone. For the consumer, Pango provides easy payment and the convenience of not having to wait in line while the car is brought to the front. In Downtown Phoenix, the company partnered with RED Development’s CityScape, the 1.1 million-square-foot mixed-use urban project with 50 retailers, commercial office towers and a 5-star hotel. Using the app, CityScape patrons can pay for parking, open and close garage gates, validate their parking from retailers, and receive special offers from CityScape retailers. One of the largest urban parking systems, it’s located in the heart of the city close to the U.S. Airways Center Arena. Pango is also being implemented with the American Valet garage system.
The app has been live in Towson, MD, and Latrobe, PA, for several months.
