The Passport Parking app is now available for users to pay for and manage parking.
Pontiac, Michigan — “The Heart of Oakland County” is reintroducing paid parking with an easy-to-use mobile payment application, Passport Parking. The app, which went live on November 1, is powered by Passport, and allows users to pay for and manage parking seamlessly through their smartphones. With Passport’s platform in place, parkers have a convenient method to pay for parking and the City of Pontiac is equipped with the most efficient, real-time parking management system on the market.
After downloading the free app from the App Store or Google Play, 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, extend their sessions remotely and view receipts and parking history. Users can also conveniently manage their parking online at passportparking.com.
“The City’s main goal is to meet the needs of our residents and businesses by offering several options for paid parking downtown,” said Mayor Tim Greimel. “By re-implementing paid parking, we will ensure that downtown residents and employees don’t occupy parking spaces all day long and that customers and patrons can more affordably find parking spots.”

In addition to utilizing Passport’s platform to offer mobile payments for parking, the City of Pontiac also powers its digital enforcement operations with the same platform, providing it with real-time mobility data in a centralized place.
