From August 15, the Passport Parking app will be the mobile way to pay for parking in Worcester
WORCESTER – Hot City, parking in the city.
With the single-space parking meters a thing of the past in Worcester – replaced last summer and fall with multi-space kiosks for people to pay for spaces on the street and city center municipal grounds – the city reminded current and prospective parking lots in a Thursday press release that the mobile app payment method for parking is changing.
From August 15, the Passport Parking app will replace the ParkBoston app as a way for people to pay for parking in Worcester via their mobile phone.
Flowbird Strada parking kiosks were installed across the city last year, replacing individual meters in slots and lots to allow people to pay directly for their space with cash, credit card or phone app portable.
A unique parking zone number on the side of bollards or on signs in a corresponding parking zone allows customers to pay for parking with their phone by downloading the Passport Parking app, entering their vehicle information, number area and payment method.
According to the city’s release, users of the ParkBoston app should install the Passport Parking app and switch to it soon, because after August 15, ParkBoston will no longer accept payment for parking in Worcester.
“Existing user account information in ParkBoston will transfer to the new Passport Parking app when it is installed,” the city said in the statement.
The Passport Parking app is free to download from the App Store (Apple iOS) or Google Play (Android), and users can also manage their parking account online at passeparking.com.
