JAMESTOWN – The City of Jamestown is rolling out a new payment option for those parking in metered spots in and around the Downtown area. The new program launches on Tuesday.
The Passport Parking app is powered by Passport, a leading transportation software and payments company that manages cities’ parking and mobility infrastructures through its robust digital platform.
To begin a session in the app, a user enters the respective zone number (posted on nearby signage and decals), parking space number and the desired amount of time for parking.
Users can extend their parking, access parking history and receipts without needing to return to a parking meter.
“With Passport’s digital platform, we can provide residents, workers and tourists another option to pay for parking downtown, while also effectively managing multiple aspects of our parking operations under a single, centralized system,’’ says Jamestown Mayor Eddie Sundquist. ‘’With this launch we can simplify the parking experience and can continue to make Jamestown a great place to live, work and recreate.”
More than 800 communities, including the City of Buffalo, partner with Passport to manage their parking and mobility needs.
In addition to utilizing Passport’s platform to offer mobile payments for parking, Jamestown also powers its enforcement operations with the same platform, allowing it to aggregate all mobility data and centralize the management of rates and policies through a single system.
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.
