Parkmobile Tops 1.5 Million Transactions in DC


Parkmobile USA announced in early March that the mobile payment for a parking program in Washington, DC, has exceeded 1.5 million transactions since its start in July 2011. With the Parkmobile solution, DC residents and visitors


can pay for parking using their cellphone. More than 70% of parking transactions are conducted via Parkmobile mobile apps, the company says, adding that the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) program shows one of the highest volumes of mobile app payments in the US. “Our partnership with the DDOT is very exciting,”


said Albert Bogaard, CEO of Parkmobile USA. “Close to 250,000 members have signed up for the DC program, with an additional 1,000 new members joining each day. These numbers show how much DC residents and visitors appreciate the convenience and ease of the Parkmobile solution used in the DDOT program.”


“Thousands of motorists use the pay-by-phone system


every day in our city,” said DDOT Director Terry Bellamy, “and that’s a testament to how successful the program has been in its first eight months. It’s a great step forward in our effort to make parking [here] more convenient and cutting-edge.” (Source: Parkmobile USA)
