I love this application this is so easy I love the fact I don’t have to look for quarter no more or my credit card
This App Gets Worse and Worse 2/5
I like the idea of using an app to pay for parking but these developers are the worst. I used it on Wednesday then tried again on Friday and all my info was gone. I wasted 10 minutes trying to set things up again and finally realized the app had randomly signed me out. It didn’t ask me to sign in the way a normal app would. I was late for an appointment and ended up just paying on the street
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL OF MY ‘DRIVING’ LIFE⁉️💸 5/5
This is a GREAT way to save money & time! This app alleviates my anxiety of getting a $35.00 parking ticket and I no longer have to run back to my vehicle like a maniac 🤪 to deposit money in a kiosk that ‘might’ be accepting cash that day‼️😒🤷🏽♀️
This app adds up in my favor...everytime‼️💰👍🏽
Full of bugs that cost you money 2/5
DONT RELY ON THIS APP. The concept of this app is great, but the implementation is full of bugs and those bugs may cost you money.
My buddy took me to Philly and used this app to put money on the meter so that it would notify him when time was almost up. His phone was on and operational the entire time because he was looking up where to get food right before it expired; he revived no notifications from the app about the meter expiring.
Later the same day he tried to pay for parking in a different zone: he set the time and tapped to pay and put it in his phone and put it out of his mind. He goes to check how much time is left ~20 min later and sees that his payment didn't seem to register and the app has no record of the activity. Now he has over $70 in traffic tickets.
Save yourself the money - just use the kiosk.
20th and JFK BLVD. PHILA. 4/5
After trying times to use the credit card reader on the city’s parking kiosk, I downloaded this parking app. The darn thing works. Now I can park without a ticket. Yay!!
Get over by hospital 2/5
This app doesn’t let you do a 2nd set of hrs so if your not close to the meter after the 1st 2hrs you will get a ticket if you don’t physically put quarters in..
Double and triple charge for no reason 1/5
Good for one use per parking instance. If you have to extend the meter, this app, for absolutely greed-only reasons, charges double and then triple the charge compared to just going to the meter. 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
Works great 5/5
In Philadelphia. Works perfect.
Can’t pay 1/5
This app doesn’t accept debit cards. Not convenient as of now.
LOVE IT!!!! 5/5
I love this app!!! It’s so convenient and I can track how long my car has without even walking outside. The best app ever created!!!
Great parking app! 5/5
Easy to use and I save money because I can terminate the parking session and only pay for the time used. You can also set favorites for the spots where you frequently park which makes setting up a session even easier.
Use the app, get a ticket anyways 1/5
I’ve gotten 2 tickets while using the app. Second ticket was written 3 minutes after starting an hour and a half parking session. This means now I have to spend my personal time fighting with the parking authority for two tickets I don’t deserve. Do yourself a favour and just get a roll of quarters to keep in your car.
No more worries that I won’t make it back to the car in time! 5/5
How many of us have run back to the car, only to find a freshly-laid ticket on the windshield, or worse, a meter person writing a ticket as you are standing there? With Meter Up, you get an alert when the meter is about to expire, and can add money from your location without breaking a sweat. Its awesome!
never works 2/5
By if I could give zero I would
every time i’ve tried to use app, whether i’m running late or have no cash, it never works. says there’s no connection (have full service) or it doesn’t let me sign in. so then i have to rush to the parking meter to pay before train comes. i wrote to them before and they said make sure app updated. well it is, still doesn’t work.
too expensive 1/5
Great app 5/5
Haven’t been to Philly in a while. Parked and saw the meters didn’t work but had instructions about the app. Super easy and convenient!!
By Walk queen
I thing is horrible how it is not clear that you are charging double to extend the parking
Decent - could use a few tweaks 4/5
Overall a good app, but the interface could use a little work - not as intuitive as it could be with the number of screens required to kickoff a session - the button locations could be better too.
Be Carefull 3/5
By Frankie the wanky
While it is convenient be aware that if you use it to pay the first 2/3 hours in Philly. Hours 4-6 are double the price and triple after that. Also it may limit you to only the 2/3 hour period and you will need to move out of the zone. Best advice is to pay using your credit card for the first 2/3 hours. Take a photo of the zone number so if you need to extend you can pay remotely. Also if you get back to your vehicle you can stop the meter and pay less than the original amount. The catch with that is if you “stop” the meter but then try to restart it it won’t let you and you again need to move to a different zone.
If no ticket then cool 5/5
Let’s see how this goes! I just signed up and used it so let’s see if I get a ticket.
Best in class 5/5
I appreciate giving me my money back for unused parking
Finally Philly provides something Superb! 5/5
I was a little skeptical with this app when I first used it a few weeks ago because I was not sure whether the parking authority will still issue me a ticket even though I have paid via this app. They have been issued wrong tickets before with the paid receipts sitting on my dashboard.
Anyway, this app is very easy to use & turned out fine. It even returned the time/money when I leave easily. A little extra processing fee though.
A total peace of mind.
Too much hesitation to make the meter app work.
Worthless-You will get ticketed 1/5
Was at a concert in Philly, and it only allows you to add up to 4 hours of park time so I set up a reminder alert to add more time/funds to my meter. When I went back on to add more time and pay, it gave me an alert saying I could not pay for back-to-back parking sessions and I would have to move my car. Obviously I was unable to leave in the middle of a concert, and I came out to a $36 parking violation. WORTHLESS
5 Star !!!! 5/5
I think it’s excellent! I should have been using this all the time!
New download, very impressed!! 5/5
Just downloaded this app for the first time because parking meter did not print my ticket. Signing up, adding my card, and paying for my parking was so simple it was ridiculous. I look forward to using this app again
App states that 2 different zones that I entered don’t exist. 1/5
Then, the app states that my Visa was not acceptable and then it responded that PayPal was not accepted.
Very problematic today!
Ticketed any way!! 2/5
I paid using app thought it was fine. Arrived to car with a ticket. It’s been weeks still trying to fight this. And there websites looks like you can add pic to summit proof for argument. Website doesn’t work. It doesn’t let u add proof.
Great app 5/5
I love this app. I don’t have to carry around tons of change anymore or park and realize I don’t have any change. You can set alarms that let you know when the meter is about to expire. You can add money enjoying a drink instead of running back to the car. I am looking forward to it being available in more areas. Great app!!
Has Flaws 3/5
The app is inconsistent... I just received an email stating my time was about to expire 10 minutes AFTER it expired. I feel this was one of its greatest features- the ability to be notified and add time. This has happened to me three times in the last two weeks(I use it almost daily); and once I got a ticket!!
Need for an update 3/5
By Prince Diii
Although this app is quite convenient, It does not allow users to park in the same zone consecutively. I should be able to park in the same zone for as long as I can pay for it. I have received several tickets because I could not get to my car in due time and the app would not allow me to park in that same zone. The error message is usually “you cannot park in this zone, find another zone”. I hope this is fixed. Other than that, I love the app
I could not cancel the meter 1/5
I could not cancel the meter and it will not notify me!! Something is wrong with the app
Five Stars 5/5
Great parking app. Very easy to use. Love it.
I keep being ticketed when I have increased duration from my location. I have tried to get help and no one responds.
Wasn’t able to change duration at this zone. 1103
Too expensive 1/5
Way too expensive transaction fee!!! Almost 40%
Meter app 5/5
By pat no means no
Best thing they’ve come out with!! Very easy sign up, no issues!! Love love love it👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
Convenient but really easy to screw up and get parking tickets. Be absolutely certain you’ve done everything right and get a confirmation that you’re done or you’re going to get nailed
By Truth Discovered
Too long a process to sign up
Old school 5/5
Took me 6 quarters before I realized how this works but it’s awesome after I figured it out. Saves in looking for change. Love it
No back to back parking 3/5
While I’m happy there’s an app to use and parking is up with technology at the same time it’s extremely inconvenient that you cannot pay for “back to back” parking.not always do you know how long you’ll be somewhere and if you’re busy you cannot keep track of the time.
To avoid getting a ticket I suggest you just pay the max amount and luckily once you press stop, you only pay for the time used.
Good but expensive 2/5
This app is super handy and I love that you can extend the amount of time that you need to park remotely. However, they charge you 40 cents every time you do, which is pretty steep if you are using this on a daily basis. They also charge 40 cents when you extend the parking (not just for the initial parking initiation) which isn’t too cool. They also do not list very publicly that they are charging you extra when you start to park which is problematic.
Meter did not register my payment.
So convenient!! 5/5
In Philadelphia for Blocktoberfest and was able to pay for parking 5 blocks away while eating. Super convenient !!!
The app moves so slow. So many glitches. I can’t always get it to work.
Couldn’t sign in 3/5
Everything was working fine. But after I extend my time. I can’t sign back in again. It keep asking for the password and I keep putting the write one then it said invalid email or password. Can’t even sign with my Touch ID. Can’t check how much time can’t end my session. I have Internet and it’s running fine. Really disappointing
Logs me out 1/5
This app is atrocious. I signed up and it keeps logging me out every session. Then when I try to retrieve my password - it said I never signed up. When I try to create another account the app freezes every time.
Terrible set-up 1/5
By all nicknames are(((ta))ken
Poorly designed. First experience was ridiculous - followed all prompts to park and repeatedly had to sign in - once to app and suddenly redirected to. Website to sign in again. Then I put in payment method - Apple Pay not available so went through signing into PayPal. Back to app - lost all my parking info so start from scratch. Put in parking info, suddenly I need to put in car info. Did that. Reset - start again. Put in parking info, asked to pay, and suddenly Apple pay is an option! So why did you demand my PayPal info? Terrible.
Best Street Parking 5/5
This app has saved me so much money, time, and the headaches of dealing with “The Philadelphia Parking Authority” since they are known to regularly ruins people’s days over technicality’s this app is essential if traveling or living in the city and especially if you hope to find philadelphia street parking!
Traffic tickets happen everywhere but for some reasons the parking authority in philadelphia is particularly known to be more aggressive with handing out parking tickets, it’s most likely because they must make BANK seeing as though they have many employees in many neighborhoods at the ready with nothing else to do but wait for your meter to run out!
This would be so useful to philadelphia to have people dedicated to improving the streets, however if you travel or live in the city you know the state of the streets, there’s a pot hole epidemic, if the philadelphia parking authority provided improvements to the streets or parking spaces (which are a complete mess), I must have missed them. I also don’t think people would be so hostile towards the parking authority if they actually were helpful and had better customer service.
So if you have a nice car park in a garage hands down. If you’re adventurous and daring enough to street park you need MeterUP!
Five star app!
