ParkMobile Partners with Mississippi State University to Provide Contactless Parking Options Around Campus
STARKVILLE, Miss., Aug. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., announced today the launch of service on Mississippi State University's campus in Starkville, Mississippi. Visitors will be able to use the ParkMobile app to pay for parking at over 12,000 spaces around campus. With the recent COVID-19 crisis, many campus leaders are encouraging visitors to use the app instead of the pay stations or traditional visitor passes to prevent the spread of the virus.
The ParkMobile app is available for both iPhone and Android devices. To pay for parking using the app, a user enters the zone number posted on stickers and signs around the pay station and throughout the parking lot, 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 go back to the meter or kiosk.
The launch of ParkMobile service at Mississippi State expands the company's footprint across the Southeast region. ParkMobile is already widely used in Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee and more. There are currently over 600,000 monthly users of the ParkMobile app in the Southeast region and that number has grown 125% over the past two years. ParkMobile is available at many colleges and universities across the region, including University of Georgia, University of North Carolina, Florida State University, and University of Virginia.
"Mississippi State is a highly innovative University and we are excited to partner with ParkMobile and offer our community an innovative way to pay for campus parking right on their mobile device," says Jeremiah Dumas, Executive Director of Transportation. "This will improve the overall parking experience at the school."
"We're excited to add Mississippi State University to our growing roster of colleges and universities," says Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile. "Visitors to the school will now have a safer way to pay for parking on campus."
