Member News: ParkMobile Partners with the University of Georgia to Provide Smarter Parking Options Around Campus
Atlanta-based company continues to add users and expand service in cities, venues and universities across the state of Georgia
Athens, GA – 2020 – ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., announced today the launch of service at the University of Georgia’s main campus in Athens. Students and visitors will be able to use the ParkMobile app to easily pay for parking at 2,400 spaces across campus in both lots and decks.
The ParkMobile app is available for both iPhone and Android devices. To pay for parking using the app, a user enters the zone number posted on stickers and signs around the lot, selects the amount of time needed and touches the “Start Parking” button to begin the session. The user can also extend the time of the parking session on their mobile device, without having to go back to the kiosk. The user can even receive a push notification when their time is nearing expiration, so that they may extend their session.
The launch of ParkMobile service at the University of Georgia expands the company’s footprint across the state. ParkMobile is already widely used in Atlanta, Decatur, Roswell, Alpharetta and more. There are currently almost 120,000 users of the ParkMobile app in the state of Georgia and that number has grown 113% over the past two years. ParkMobile can also be used to make parking reservations for events at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, State Farm Arena, Georgia World Congress Center and Bobby Dodd Stadium. Beyond the state of Georgia, ParkMobile is available in most major cities, including New York, Washington, D.C., Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, and Miami Beach.
“As an Atlanta-based company, we are beyond excited to partner with the University of Georgia,” says Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile. “There are a lot of UGA alumni who currently work for ParkMobile, so it’s great to see our signs all around Athens.”
