Year-round travel destination in Minnesota launches Passport Parking for easy, contactless parking payments
Stillwater, MN /PRNewswire/ - The City of Stillwater is partnering with mobility software and payments company Passport to provide its community with an easier and more convenient way to pay for parking. With Passport's platform in place, the City can also access real-time parking insights and data and operate more efficiently
Passport's mobile payment application, Passport Parking, makes paying to park seamless and hassle-free. After downloading the free app from the App Store or Google Play, a user enters the respective zone number, license plate number and the desired length of time for parking. Users can receive notifications when their sessions are about to expire and view receipts and parking history directly from their smartphones.
"Passport's technology streamlines our operations and gives our residents and visitors more parking payment options," says Community Development Director at the City of Stillwater, Tim Gladhill. "With this launch, our residents and visitors can park with peace of mind and spend more time enjoying Stillwater's exquisite dining, live music entertainment and more."
More than 800 cities, private operators and universities in North America trust Passport's digital mobility platform as the only end-to-end system for managing mobile pay parking, parking enforcement, digital parking permits and mobility management. Later this year, the City will leverage Passport's platform to digitally enforce its curb through license plate recognition (LPR) technology.
"We are thrilled for this partnership with the City of Stillwater," says Jake Breig, Passport account executive. "In addition to offering the community a convenient way to pay for parking, the City of Stillwater can now collect, aggregate and visualize all mobility data in one central location through our platform."
The Passport Parking app is free to download from the App Store and Google Play. Users can also manage their parking online at passportparking.com.
