Member News: PayByPhone Launches in Metro Atlanta Market
PayByPhone, a leading global provider of mobile parking payment solutions, now offers Atlanta residents and visitors a simpler and better parking experience. With PayByPhone, parkers in Atlanta have access to more than 2,700 on-street spaces throughout the city.
Viewed as a great additional payment choice by the City of Atlanta and its partner ATLPlus Mobility, PayByPhone provides an optimal parking solution for drivers in Atlanta’s most highly traveled areas, including:
- East Central Business District
- Little Five Points
- North Midtown

According to one recent study, Atlanta is one of the eight American cities where traffic costs more than $2,000 per driver on average. In many situations, parking challenges contribute heavily to congestion.
“Atlanta is a vibrant, growing hub with millions of residents and visitors driving our roads daily,” said Cynthia Curry, director of Smart Cities for the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce. “Better parking offerings and services will play a key role in creating a better experience for our residents and visitors and moving our smart initiatives forward.”
To make the parking experience better for all Atlantans, PayByPhone is offering one free hour of parking, beginning Dec. 2nd through Dec. 31st, at designated PayByPhone locations for those who download the app, which is available for both Android and iOS users.
“Atlanta and other cities around the world are looking at parking more strategically – clearly understanding the impact of parking on its residents and visitors.” said Roamy Valera, CEO of PayByPhone. “We strive to bring our experience to our municipal partnerships to deliver a seamless and user-friendly parking experience for the cities and their drivers.”
PayByPhone is a hassle-free solution for more than 30 million registered drivers, allowing them to pay for parking with just their smartphone. The app sends text messages automatically when a parking session expires and gives drivers the ability to extend their parking session without needing to return to their vehicle. Drivers can also begin a session without registering for an account, making it ideal for those who are pressed for time.
