City adopts simpler way to pay for parking

Appleton, WI — An easier way to pay for parking is available. The City of Appleton today announced the launch of PassportParking®, mobile parking application. Passport, the industry leader in mobile payments for parking and transit, has partnered with the city to launch its smartphone application.

 

With PassportParking, users can purchase parking using a debit or credit card, monitor and receive notifications when their session runs low, view all parking history, extend time remotely, and add funds to pay for parking through the in-app wallet feature. The app is now available at 800 metered parking spaces through the city.

 

“The City of Appleton is excited to partner with Passport to provide our residents and visitors with an easy and convenient way to pay for metered parking,” said Paula Vandehey, Director of Public Works. “Appleton will join Green Bay and Fond du Lac who have already implemented the PassportParking app!”

 

“It’s a momentous time for Appleton and we’re proud to bring a mobile parking solution to the community,” said Mike Mohler, Project Manager at Passport. “Providing the city with an efficient way to handle parking through their smartphone enhances user experience and satisfaction, and opens up the doors to new technology initiatives.”

 

The PassportParking app is free to download through the App Store or Google Play. Users can also manage their parking at ppprk.com.
