SUNY Brockport Selects ParkMobile as the Official Provider of Contactless Parking Payments on Campus

Amid COVID-19 concerns, students, faculty and visitors will have the option to skip the meter and pay for parking via mobile app.

Brockport, NY – September 1, 2020 – ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., announced today the launch of service on campus at SUNY Brockport. Students, faculty and visitors will be able to use the ParkMobile app to pay for parking at over 1,100 spaces around campus. With the recent COVID-19 crisis, University leaders are encouraging the community to pay through the app instead of at the meter or pay station to prevent the spread of the virus.

ParkMobile is the #1 parking app in the U.S. with over 19 million users and is available for both iPhone and Android devices. To pay for parking with the ParkMobile app, a user enters the zone number posted on stickers and signs around the parking space. The user then 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 without having to return to the meter.

The launch of ParkMobile at SUNY Brockport expands the company’s footprint in New York State where there are currently 1.2 million users of the app. People can use ParkMobile to pay for parking in Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse, Ithaca, New Rochelle, Mamaroneck, Lake George, Yonkers, and all five boroughs of New York City. Beyond the state, the app is widely available in cities in the Northeast and across the country.

“SUNY Brockport is excited to partner with ParkMobile to create a better parking experience on campus,” says Johnna Frosini, Director of Parking and Transportation Services. “The app provides our students and visitors with a safe and convenient way to pay for parking. This will also provide permit options for those students who only need to visit campus occasionally as a result of online or hybrid course schedule.”

“We want to welcome the SUNY Brockport Campus to our network in New York State,” says Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile. “We have large base of users in the surrounding areas who will now have an easier way to pay for parking when they visit the campus.
