ParkMobile to Provide for Contactless Parking Payments in Rockville

Replaces MobileNOW! App, Which Stopped Operating in May

Motorists will be able to use the ParkMobile app to pay for parking at the more than 500 publicly metered spaces throughout the City of Rockville, beginning this month.

ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., is an option for paying for parking at over 21,000 spaces in in Montgomery County, as well as in Washington, D.C.; Arlington and Alexandria, Virginia; and over 400 cities across the U.S.

Amid the ongoing COVID-19 emergency, Rockville is encouraging motorists to use the app instead of the meter to help slow the spread of the virus.

“We are happy to continue offering a contactless payment option in our city,” said Chief Victor Brito of the Rockville City Police Department. “ParkMobile is the leading mobile parking app and is widely available in the Washington metropolitan area, making this an easy transition for our residents.”

ParkMobile replaces MobileNOW! as the parking app for city meters. MobileNOW! stopped operating in May due to factors related to the COVID-19 emergency. City meters will continue to accept quarters.

To pay for parking with the ParkMobile app, a user enters the zone number posted on the stickers and signs posted around the meter, selects the amount of time needed and touches the “Start Parking” button to begin the session. The user can also extend the time of the parking session on their mobile device without having to go back to the meter. ParkMobile provides 24/7/365 customer service and additional payment options like PayPal and ApplePay.
