Pay for city parking with your cell phone

The next time you can’t find quarters for a downtown parking meter, you can use your cell phone to pay.

The city says its implemented a pay-by-phone service using Parkmobile’s mobile applications for the iPhone, Android, Windows and Blackberry smart phones.

Here’s more from the city:

The Parkmobile app can be used for any of the City’s 1,500 parking meters. To use the new Parkmobile system, customers can register for free at  or download the mobile app. Once registered, they can use the mobile app, the Internet or a toll free number – 877-PARK-HLP or 877-727-5457 – to pay for parking. After setting up the account, customers can immediately start using the system with their registered mobile phone. They can also select the option to receive alerts and reminders 15 minutes prior to expiration of their parking session. The service charges a nominal service fee for transactions.

“Parkmobile is very excited to launch our mobile payment parking service in Kansas City, another progressive thinking city,” said Cherie Fuzzell, CEO of Parkmobile USA, Inc. “This technology offers customers a new and better way to pay for parking. Our mobile payment service is an example of another technology that can make our lives easier and more efficient.”
