The University of Louisville Expands ParkMobile Partnership to Offer Contactless Parking Year-Round on Campus
After the success of ParkMobile parking reservations for football games last fall, The University of Louisville is transitioning all mobile parking payments to ParkMobile’s easy-to-use system.
Louisville, Kentucky – ParkMobile has expanded its partnership at The University of Louisville to offer mobile parking payments for on-demand parking on campus. Through the partnership, ParkMobile will be available at over 2,700 off-street spaces at the university. The expanded partnership is a result of the university’s success in offering ParkMobile for parking reservations during last year’s football season.
“We’ve seen firsthand the effect that ParkMobile has on our university by making parking a seamless experience. Now our students, faculty, and visitors will be able to use the app year-round to pay for parking on campus,” said Gary Becker, Director of Parking & Transportation Services at the University of Louisville. “ParkMobile significantly decreased the traffic congestion on campus last fall, so we look forward to furthering our partnership with them.”
ParkMobile recently launched in the City of Louisville through a partnership with the Parking Authority of River City. The app is also available at the Kentucky Exposition Center, as well as in other markets across Kentucky including Lexington, Bowling Green, and Richmond.
ParkMobile has over 36 million users across North America, is available for both iPhone and Android devices, or can also be accessed on a mobile web browser. To pay for zone parking using the mobile or web app, a user enters the zone number posted on signs around the parking spot, 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.
“It’s great to see an already active university expand on their ParkMobile offerings and now have our most popular features available on campus,” added Jeff Perkins, CEO of ParkMobile. “The partnership launches just in time for students to start returning to campus following their summer vacation next month.”
