Miami Beach, FL-May 12, 2014– Parkmobile USA, Inc. and Miami Beach Parking announced today a program that will allow customers to use their mobile phones to pay
for parking at all of the over 8,300+ metered spaces throughout Miami Beach. Customers can pay for parking with their cell phone using Parkmobile’s mobile applications for the iPhone, Android, Windows 7, and Blackberry smartphones.
To use the new Parkmobile system, customers register free at www.parkmobile.com.
Once registered, they can use a mobile app, the internet, or call toll free to pay for
parking. After setting up the account, customers can immediately start using the system
with their registered mobile phone. They can also select the option to receive
text message alerts and reminders. Parkmobile mobile payment solution is an added payment option and is intended to complement existing parking payment options. All existing forms of payment (credit and debit cards, coins) are still valid for meter use.
“Parkmobile is very excited to launch our mobile payment parking service in Miami
Beach,” said Cherie Fuzzell, CEO of Parkmobile USA, Inc. “We are thrilled to partner
with Miami Beach Parking to offer this technology which enhances the parking
experience by eliminating the need to swipe a card or feed coins to a meter.
Parkmobile looks forward to working with Miami Beach Parking to offer drivers a more
robust means of parking.”
“Customer service is a priority for us as we pursue new efficiencies and technologies,” said Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine. “We’ve integrated the new pay by- phone service with our real-time parking locator app for convenient one-stop parking. This much-anticipated service will benefit both our residents and visitors.”
Miami Beach residents must register at the Customer Service Center, located at 1755
Meridian Avenue, first floor, to qualify for a metered parking fee discount in South
Beach ($1.00 vs $1.75 per hour) as well as no transaction fees assessed by Parkmobile.
Residents who are actively participating in any of the Miami Beach’s residential
parking programs have been pre-qualified and do not need to register. Parking ambassadors will be at parking locations providing information about the new
service throughout the week of the launch.
