Auraria Campus Partners with ParkMobile to Offer Contactless Payments on Denver Campus
ParkMobile replaces the Passport app for campus parking
Denver, CO – August 27, 2020 – ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., announced today the launch of service on the Auraria Campus in Denver, Colorado. Effective September 1, 2020, the previous mobile parking app, Passport, will no longer be available. The ParkMobile app will be the only parking payment app available on campus. Students, faculty, staff, and visitors will be able to use the ParkMobile app for touchless parking payments for over 4,100 parking spaces available on campus.
ParkMobile is the #1 parking app in the U.S. with over 19 million users and is available for both iPhone and Android devices. To pay for parking with the ParkMobile app, a user enters the zone number posted on the stickers and signs around parking space. The user then 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 meter. ParkMobile offers all the same features and functionality as Passport app but provides a better user experience and 24/7/365 customer support. The ParkMobile app is also available in many more locations in the Colorado and across the country.
The launch of ParkMobile on the Auraria Campus expands the company’s footprint in Colorado. There are currently over 700,000 users of the app in the state with availability in Denver, Boulder, Winter Park, Telluride, Manitou Springs, Steamboat Springs, and Colorado Springs. Additionally, the app can be used at the University of Denver, and the University of Colorado Boulder and Colorado Springs campuses. Beyond Colorado, the app can be used to pay for parking in over 400 cities across the United States.
“We’re always working to improve the parking experience for the Auraria Campus community,” said Lena Price, Director or Parking & Transportation Services. “After much research, we found that ParkMobile provides a better user experience and already has a large base of users in downtown Denver. We anticipate that this will be an easy transition for the Auraria Campus community.”
“We want to welcome the Auraria Campus to our network in Colorado,” says Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile. “We have thousands of users in the immediate area who will now have an easier way to pay for parking when they visit the campus.
