Richmond, VA /PRNewswire/ - ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the US, has partnered with CityParking Inc. in Richmond to enable residents and visitors to easily pay for parking from their mobile devices. The ParkMobile app is now available at approximately 3,000 spaces in 26 off-street lots around the city.
Stickers and signage will be posted around the city to provide information to drivers on how to pay for parking using the new app. ParkMobile is a free app available for iPhone and Android devices, and users can additionally register on parkmobile.io.
