A national parking payment company and Traverse City Parking Services have teamed up to make instant parking payments from your mobile or smartphone possible as summer tourism season rolls around for Traverse City.
creates apps for Apple, Android, Windows and Blackberry products that allow customers to pay for parking with their phones. The apps are in use in many major cities and other Michigan cities as well.
The app is called Parkmobile and customers can register free online (www.parkmobile.com) or download the app. They can then use the app, the website or a toll-free number to pay for parking. The app also provides alerts and reminders about when your parking expires.
"Parkmobile is very excited to launch our mobile payment parking service in Traverse City, another progressive thinking city," says Cherie Fuzzell, CEO of Parkmobile USA, Inc.
The payment system already is offered in Petoskey, along with Mount Clemens, Birmingham, Ferndale, Dearborn, Grand Rapids and South Haven.
