In St. Pete, You Can Use Your Smart Phone to Pay for Parking
By JON WILSON, Consulting Editor, TB Reporter
Once registered, motorists can use a mobile app, the Internet or a toll-free phone call.
ST. PETERSBURG — Residents and visitors to St. Petersburg are now able to conduct their metered parking transactions by mobile phone. Smart phone users can download an app while non-smart phones can call the phone number to manage parking sessions. An increase in the duration of on-street parking is available for a fee.
A Resident Discount Program will allow registered St. Pete residents to use the app to pay for parking in the city without having to pay a convenience fee of 35 cents per transaction. To sign up for the Resident Discount Program, residents with a Parkmobile account must submit two of the following three documents referencing a St. Petersburg address to StPeteResidents@parkmobileglobal.com; a valid photo ID, valid vehicle registration, or valid proof of residency. Once residency documents have been approved, an email will be sent within three business days confirming the discount has been applied to the resident’s account.
Here are some of the features:
- Pay with PayPal or Credit Card
- Track parking expenses and print reports through Parkmobile’s secure site.
- Donate to the City’s Power of Change Donation program benefiting the homeless. To contribute to the program, enter Zone 2000 in the app and choose your level of giving, with no Parkmobile transaction fee.
- An increase to the on-street parking duration from 2-3 hours to a 6-hour max for an additional charge.
