PassportParking® expands in Philadelphia region
Mobile payment app launches in Borough of Morton
Morton, Pa. (Aug. 8, 2018) — The Borough of Morton and Passport announce the launch of the PassportParking® mobile application in downtown Morton. The mobile application is powered by Passport, the global leader of mobile payments for parking and transit serving transportation operations throughout North America. Passport has a growing presence in the Philadelphia-area with this implementation marking its fifth successful borough launch. The mobile app is also available in the boroughs of Swarthmore, Phoenixville, Kennett Square and West Chester.
For the first time, residents and visitors in downtown Morton will have the option to pay for parking with a mobile application. Signs and decals will be displayed to direct drivers to where the PassportParking app can be used in lot and on-street parking areas.
In addition to being able to pay for parking through the app, users are also able to:
- Extend their sessions remotely
- Keep track of all parking history
- Receive notifications
- Get email receipts
“The partnership with Passport helps us further accommodate our drivers in downtown Morton,” said Morton Borough Manager Robert Poole. “If residents and guests are spending time in downtown or commuting on the SEPTA regional rail line they can now pay for parking without digging for coins.”
“We’re very excited to have this partnership with Morton,” said Passport VP of Sales David Singletary. “This expansion in the Philadelphia-area gives drivers an opportunity to pay for parking with more convenience and ease. However, app users might spend their day they can rest assured knowing they can extend their sessions from wherever they may be.”
