Park TYB parking app launches
New app, by Passport, launches in time for beach season.
Tybee Island, Ga. (June 29, 2018) — Tybee Island, a city known for its beautiful sandy beaches and its friendly, laid-back residents will now be known for one more distinction: Park TYB. The city launches Park TYB, a mobile parking application customized for Tybee Island. The app allows users to pay for parking through their phones. Park TYB, is powered by Passport, the global leader of mobile payments for parking and transit, serving cities and universities. A special validation code is offered to first-time Park TYB app users that allows users to park up to one hour for free: FREEPARKTYB.
The Park TYB app not only makes paying for parking even more convenient but also allows parkers to monitor and extend their parking sessions remotely, view payment history and receive email receipts.
“We are excited to introduce the Park TYB app, which is tailored to our community,” said Shawn Gillen, City Manager. “We want our Tybee Island residents and visitors to be able to enjoy the city and Park TYB helps us offer another convenient way for drivers to pay and manage their parking throughout the day.”
The Park TYB app is available in the North End, near the Tybee Lighthouse; Mid-Island, close to City Hall; and in the South End, a short distance from the Tybee Beach Pier and Pavilion. It can be used in almost 2,300 spaces in the business district and near the beaches. Signage will be available throughout all Park TYB areas.
“Whether you are enjoying the city or at the beach you can use Park TYB no matter what your day looks like,” said Kelsey Owens, Passport regional sales director. “If you need to extend your parking session you can do so from your phone. No need to leave a great spot on the beach to pay for parking.”
