Reinventing the way agencies connect with their community

About Us

Our journey began with a vision and a determination to make parking more efficient by implementing the most thoughtful and adaptable enterprise mobility platforms through familiar, user-friendly technologies. That driving motivation propelled us to where we are today—the largest provider of mobile payment parking software for the parking and transit industries in North America. Our technology platforms are now installed in cities and universities from coast to coast, designed to reduce operational complexity and deliver intelligent data to improve decision making.

Leadership

Bob Youakim, CEO

Bob co-founded Passport in 2010 to help public and private agencies drive efficiency and obtain value from the money spent trying to improve life in cities. Before Passport, Bob was a successful VP in Investment Banking. Bob combines his “never give up” mentality with his vast experience in business development, finance, and operations to navigate the company to its leading market position. He is frequently invited to speak on parking, transit, and venture capital. Bob holds a B.S. degree from the University of Illinois and an MBA from Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management. Bob is also a CPA. Outside of Passport, he loves being silly with his wife and four children and enjoys flying planes as a pilot.
