PaybyphoneVANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA (July 16, 2020) – PayByPhone, a leading global provider of mobile parking payment solutions, has partnered with Ripley, West Virginia, to provide contactless, simple parking experiences for residents and visitors. The city has begun using PayByPhone at more than 100 parking spaces surrounding its town square.

Nestled in the Appalachian foothills at the junction of Interstate 77 and US Route 33, Ripley is home to 300 residents. It annually hosts the oldest parade and Independence Day celebration in West Virginia.

“The Town Square is the hub for Ripley’s shopping, dining and entertainment,” said Carolyn Radar, the Mayor for City of Ripley. “Our new partnership with PayByPhone provides all visitors with an easy contactless parking option.”

With the launch of PayByPhone, visitors can enter the parking space location, length of parking, payment and parking session extensions all through PayByPhone’s app, website or the service number displayed on parking lot signs. The app even texts users when their parking session has expired.

“PayByPhone provides simple parking solutions in over 70 American cities,” said Roamy Valera, PayByPhone CEO. “It is our privilege to help Ripley provide improved, hassle-free parking experiences to visitors and residents.”
