Parkmobile Expands its Presence to Puerto Rico and Launches at Distrito T-Mobile Offering Contactless Parking Systems
Visitors to the innovative entertainment center will be able to use the mobile app to pay for parking
San Juan, PR – October 20, 2021– ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in North America, announced today its expansion to Puerto Rico through a partnership with DISTRITO T-Mobile, Puerto Rico’s premier entertainment venue. Visitors are now able to pay for parking on their mobile devices in close to 3,000 spaces within three off-street gated facilities on the property. The integration of ParkMobile’s contactless payment system will help eliminate long lines at the pay stations in the parking locations by simplifying the exit process. Later this year, ParkMobile plans to add parking reservations to DISTRITO T-Mobile for concerts, dining, convention center attendees, and on-site events.
The ParkMobile app is the #1 parking app in North America with 28M users and is available for both iPhone and Android devices. Now, Puerto Rico residents and visitors can experience the convenience that’s widely available in 450 cities across the United States.
Through ParkMobile, users can easily pay for parking through their phones and exit the location without having to touch the pay station or wait in long lines. To pay for hourly parking, a user enters the facility and pulls a ticket from the machine. Once parked, a user enters zone #10101, shown on nearby signage, into the ParkMobile app and scans the QR code from the ticket in the app. To exit, users will insert the ticket into the machine, prompting the app to process payment and the gate to lift.
“The integration of ParkMobile will make visiting DISTRITO T-Mobile an even better experience for our guests,” said Gabriel de Cárdenas, General Manager of DISTRITO T-Mobile. “By partnering with them, we are streamlining the parking process and reducing the traffic congestion often faced when exiting the onsite parking garages.”
“We are excited to welcome DISTRITO T-Mobile to the ParkMobile network,” says Jeff Perkins, CEO of ParkMobile. “This is our first venture into Puerto Rico and an important market for us. We’re thrilled to continue introducing ParkMobile to countries outside of the U.S. and Canada.
