SUPERIOR, Wis., Feb. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the United States, has partnered with the University of WisconsinSuperior to allow students and visitors to pay for parking on their mobile device. The ParkMobile app will be available at more than 420 spaces in 7 different lots on campus. With the recent COVID-19 crisis, University leaders are encouraging the community to pay by app instead of at the kiosk to prevent the spread of the virus.

The user can also extend the time of the parking session on their mobile device without having to go back to the meter or pay station.

ParkMobile has over 300,000 users in the state of Wisconsin and can be ued to pay for parking in Milwaukee, Whitefish Bay, Lake Geneva, La Crosse, and more. ParkMobile is also available at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Green Bay, and Milwaukee campuses. Beyond Wisconsin, the app can be used to pay for parking in over 450 cities across the U.S., including Chicago, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Columbus, St. Louis, and Pittsburgh.



"UW-Superior is excited to partner with ParkMobile to create a better parking experience on campus," says Trish Hegstrom-Olson, UW-Superior Parking Manager. "The app provides our students and visitors with a safe and convenient way to pay for parking at our school."
