The Danbury Daily Voice has the scoop on the parking upgrades downtown that will allow drivers to leave their quarters for the parking meter at home.
Danbury has partnered with Parkmobile to add a program that allows customers to use their mobile phones to pay for parking at 400 on-street spaces throughout the city. Customers can pay with their cellphone using Parkmobile’s mobile applications for the iPhone, Android, and Windows smartphones.Read more on the new parking feature at the Danbury Daily Voice website.
“This is an innovative and exciting service that will enable our residents to experience downtown Danbury in a more convenient and accessible way,” said Mayor Mark Boughton. “We are constantly finding ways to push forward into the 21st century as a city. This partnership with Parkmobile is just one of the many ways people can experience Danbury as a city of the future.”
To use the new Parkmobile system, customers register free at www.parkmobile.com .
Once you are registered, you can use a mobile app, Internet, or call toll free to pay for parking. After setting up an account, a customer can immediately begin using the system with a registered mobile device.
Enforcement officers will be able to see that a motorist has paid with Parkmobile using a wireless handheld device.
Mobile app users may also choose to receive alerts and reminders 15 minutes before a parking session expires.
Time limits on meters still apply, and the app will not allow users to purchase more time than allotted by the meters.
