BOYNTON BEACH, Fla., Oct. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., announced today a new partnership with the City of Boynton Beach to allow residents and visitors to pay for parking on their mobile device. The ParkMobile app will be available at nearly 400 off-street spaces at Oceanfront Park Beach and Harvey Oyer Park. Amid the COVID-19 crisis, many city leaders are encouraging residents and visitors to use the app instead of the meter or pay station to prevent the spread of the virus.

ParkMobile is the #1 parking app in the U.S. with over 20 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 the stickers and signs around the parking spot. 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 go back to the meter or pay station.

ParkMobile has a large presence in Florida with over 3.4 million users and is available in the cities of West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Hollywood, Delray Beach, and Miami Beach. The app is also available further north in Tampa, Orlando, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, Tallahassee, Gainesville, and Jacksonville. Beyond Florida, the app can be used to pay for parking in over 400 cities across the U.S. including Washington, DC, New York City, Philadelphia, Atlanta, New Orleans, and many more.

"Boynton Beach's new partnership with ParkMobile will create a better parking experience for our community," says Director of Public Works & Engineering for Boynton Beach, Andrew Mack. "By offering a contactless parking payment option, our residents and visitors can enjoy visiting our beach and boat ramps and safely pay for parking without having to touch the physical equipment."

"We're excited to add Boynton Beach to our network in the state of Florida," says ParkMobile CEO, Jon Ziglar, "The app is widely available up and down I-95, from Jacksonville to Miami Beach, making it safe and easy to pay for parking everywhere you go."
