, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the United States, has partnered with the University of Wisconsin – Superior 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 ParkMobile app is the #1 parking app in the U.S., with over 22 million users, and is available for both iPhone
and Android devices. ParkMobile can also be accessed on a mobile web browser for those who do not want to download an app. To pay for parking using the mobile or web app, a user enters the zone number posted on stickers and signs around the parking spot, 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 over 300,000 users in the state of Wisconsin and can be used 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."
“We want to welcome UW-Superior to our network in Wisconsin,” says Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile. “We have a large base of users in the state who can now use the app to easily and safely pay for parking whenever they visit the campus.”
