A new feature available in downtown Toledo is
making paying for parking more mobile-friendly.
The Downtown Toledo Parking Authority has
partnered with Park Mobile to offer a new service: drivers can add time to
their parking meter – and pay – with their phone. It's available on parking
meters identified by a green sticker.
"The major change is that you're allowed to
do this from your car or from your office, or from lunch, and not have to go
back to the meter," said Daniel Fortinberry with the Toledo Parking Authority.
It's a simple process. Parkers need only to
call Park Mobile, add an app to their smartphone, and answer a few questions.
"They will ask for a credit card, and they
will ask for a license plate," Fortinberry said. "And our enforcement officers,
all they see is the license plate number that has been paid. That's all the
information that we have available to us."
There is a $0.35 fee per transaction for customers
using the service, but it costs nothing for the city or the parking authority.
Fortinberry said the response so far has been
great. In nine days, over 100 people have used the service.
For travelers, the Park Mobile app is good in
any city with the pay-by-phone service.
Customers without smartphones can still use
the service by calling the phone number on the meter.
