There is a new contactless payment option for on-street parking in Downtown Jacksonville.

ParkMobile makes paying for parking an easier and more convenient experience, allowing users to pay for and remotely monitor parking sessions, according to a news release from the city.

ParkMobile is an app available for iPhone and Android devices. It also can be accessed via a web browser.

To pay for parking using the mobile or web app, a user enters the zone number posted on the parking meter, selects the amount of time needed and presses the “Start Parking” button to begin the session. The user will receive an email or text message confirming their payment.

Although the meter may not display receipt of payment, parking enforcement personnel will instantly know the payment has been made. The user also can monitor their transaction and remotely extend the time of the parking session if needed.

The service will cost 45 cents per transaction.

Other forms of payment, including credit and debit cards and coins, remain valid for meter use.

“As we continue to see unprecedented growth and development in downtown Jacksonville, there is a notable need for convenient parking,” Mayor Lenny Curry said in the release.

“Not only is the timing of this partnership nearly perfect, the fact that a national leader in smart parking, with nearly 35 million users, is expanding their services into downtown Jacksonville is a testament to our growth and development,” Lori Boyer, CEO of the Downtown Investment Authority, said in the release.

“ParkMobile will help to ease the stress of parking in downtown and allow citizens to focus on what our amazing downtown has to offer,” she said.

ParkMobile is available at metered parking spaces where its decals are placed.

The Office of Public Parking is installing the decals this week. When complete, ParkMobile will be available at all 1,420 metered parking spaces Downtown.
