Eau Claire, WI Expands Parking and Enforcement Operations with Passport
Mobile pay parking and digital permits powered by Passport’s platform now available throughout the City.
Eau Claire, Wisconsin — In partnership with mobility software and payments company Passport, the City of Eau Claire is introducing a new way to pay for parking. The Passport Parking application, powered by Passport, allows parkers to seamlessly pay for and extend their parking sessions from their smartphones. Passport’s technology also enables the City to access parking and enforcement insights and data and to operate more efficiently.
Passport Parking makes paying to park seamless and hassle-free. After downloading the free app, a user enters the respective zone number, license plate number and the desired length of time for parking. Users can receive notifications when their sessions are about to expire and view receipts and parking history. The City of Eau Claire is also launching Passport’s digital permitting solution which gives motorists a secure method to apply and pay for parking permits and allows the City to manage daily tasks through one system.
“Passport’s cutting-edge technology will provide our City with a more efficient system that will improve the parking experience for our residents and visitors,” says Stephanie Hirsch, Eau Claire City Manager.
