ParkHouston App, Powered by ParkMobile, Unveils Spanish-Language Version
The Spanish translations are available when a ParkHouston user updates their device settings to Spanish.
HOUSTON, TX – January 26, 2022 – ParkMobile announced an enhancement to the City of Houston’s ParkHouston app that will give users access to view the app in Spanish. This new feature makes the app more accessible for ParkHouston’s Spanish-speaking users as the city continues to make parking easy and convenient.
“Houston es la ciudad más diversa del país, por lo que ofrecer una versión en español de la aplicación es muy importante para la ciudad de Houston”, dice Tina Paez, Directora de Administración y Asuntos Regulatorios. “ParkHouston quiere que los pagos de estacionamiento sean lo más conveniente posible para todos los residentes de Houston y visitantes de nuestra comunidad”.
“Houston is the most diverse city in the country, so offering a Spanish version of the app is very important to the City of Houston,” says Tina Paez, Director of Administration and Regulatory Affairs. “ParkHouston wants parking payments to be as convenient as possible for all Houstonians and visitors to our community.”
ParkMobile and the City of Houston have been in partnership for more than a decade, and the ParkHouston app launched in 2017. Since then, ParkHouston has seen more than 300,000 lifetime users, resulting in more than three million transactions.
The ParkHouston app, powered by ParkMobile, is free to download on both iPhone and Android devices. To view the app in Spanish, a user must change their default language to Spanish (United States) in their phone settings. From there, users can use the app to pay for parking or reserve parking in advance, just as they would on the English version of the app.
“The City of Houston has been an incredible partner of ours since 2011, so we’re thrilled to further our partnership with the addition of Spanish capabilities for the ParkHouston app,” says Jeff Perkins, CEO of ParkMobile. “Providing the option for Spanish in the ParkHouston app is just another way Houston is using innovative technology to create a better experience for all.”
