Park Place Parking and ParkMobile Partner to Offer Smart Parking in Columbus

ParkMobile is partnering with Park Place Parking to allow customers to use their mobile devices to pay for parking. The service is available across 2,000 spaces at 20 lots across Columbus.

The ParkMobile app has replaced the previous mobile parking provider across all Park Place Parking lots. New stickers and signage will provide information to drivers on how to pay for parking using the new app. To use ParkMobile, customers can register for free through the app for iPhone, Android or online at parkmobile.io. After setting up their account, customers can immediately begin using the system with their registered device.

Users can also choose to upgrade to the ParkMobile Pro membership which includes Parking Availability, a feature that shows where the open on-street parking spots are in immediate area. Additionally, membership comes with special offers on automotive related services like oil changes, rental cars and more.

ParkMobile is widely available in Columbus and surronding areas in Ohio, including Cleveland, Athens, Bay Village, Cincinnati, Toledo, and Lakewood. Additionally, ParkMobile will soon support Cleveland Browns parking at FirstEnergy Stadium.

“Park Place is excited to partner with the ParkMobile team to improve customer service in the Columbus, Ohio market.  Park Place prides itself on bringing ingenuity, resourcefulness and, vision to our customers and clients,” stated Shawn Compton, General Manager at Park Place.  “It is great to know that the ParkMobile team shares our values and we look forward to continued success.”
