Contactless mobile parking payments begin in downtown Jacksonville


JACKSONVILLE, Florida. – The City of Jacksonville on Monday launched a contactless payment option for on-street parking in downtown Jacksonville through ParkMobile.

ParcMobile allows users to pay and monitor parking sessions on the go.

The new payment option went live Monday and will be available in metered parking spaces where ParkMobile decals have been rolled out, according to a statement. The Office of Public Parking will continue to install decals throughout the week and once completed ParkMobile will be available for all 1,420 metered parking spaces in the city centre.

“As we continue to see unprecedented growth and development in downtown Jacksonville, there is a noticeable need for convenient parking,” said Mayor Lenny Curry. “We are excited about our partnership with ParkMobile as it will make it easier for residents and visitors to frequent this part of our city. »

To pay for parking using the mobile or web app, a user enters the zone number displayed on the parking meter, selects the time required, and presses the “Start Parking” button to begin the session. The user will receive an e-mail or an SMS confirming his payment.

“Although the meter may not show receipt of payment, parking enforcement personnel will instantly know that payment has been made,” the statement said.

The user can also monitor their transaction and remotely extend the duration of the parking session if necessary.

“Not only is the timing of this partnership near perfect, but having a national leader in smart parking, with nearly 35 million users, expand its services to downtown Jacksonville is a testament to our growth and development. “said Lori Boyer, CEO. of the Downtown Investment Authority. “ParkMobile will help ease the stress of downtown parking and allow citizens to focus on what our incredible downtown has to offer. »
