Parking in downtown Wilmington has just gotten easier with the announcement from Wilmington Mayor Mike Purzycki that 1,000 parking meters in the downtown district will be payable via the Parkmobile app. Launched on Wednesday, October 25, residents now have the option to pay for parking using their mobile devices. In addition to the payment system provided by Parkmobile, users can also receive alerts before the time on their meter expires and extend the time with the click of a button instead of walking all the way back to their meter. Having to lug around a pocket full of quarters is now a thing of the past in downtown Wilmington!
“Parkmobile offers a convenient payment option that will improve the parking experience in downtown Wilmington,” said Mayor Purzycki. “This upgrade allows Wilmington residents, workers, and visitors to enjoy the same level of convenience they may have experienced at the Delaware beaches and in other cities. Customers will no longer need to worry about keeping coins on hand or running into stores to request change for the meters.”
To set up an account, you can register for free on the Parkmobile app or at www.parkmobile.com. Once registered, you can immediately begin paying with Parkmobile either by using the app for iPhone, Android, and Windows phones or by calling a toll-free number. Customers simply select their parking zone, license plate, card information, length of stay, and off they go.
