System Down 1/5
By Tosa resident
Couldn’t use it. Kiosk out too. Probably will get a ticket.
False prompts 2/5
I often get false prompts from this app, whereby I can’t proceed with the operation and have to restart from the beginning.
Don’t under “zone” 5/5
This is a great option when no cash is available! However, I’ve parked in many places downtown where there are “no zones available”. Maybe they should omit that, and just have the parking meter number to be displayed. Thx.
By endzone drama
There aren’t any zone postings on the meters nor on nearby signs. The first time I used the app, I had 3 zones pop up on the app. I chose the first one, paid, and ended up with a ticket. I disputed the ticket with the city showing I paid through the app and they refused to overturn it. The second time I tried to use this, again not knowing the zone, I put the meter space in and the map showed that I was located in a different part of the city. My trust in this app is gone.
No happy. 2/5
By just a girl trying to park
This app seems to lose all of credit card info when it updates. It is a hassle to always update info. What’s the point of the app???
Unreal it’s either download the app or pay a $5.00 fee to pay by a phone call. The city of Milwaukee is really trying to make people come & visit. Tom Barrett horrible mayor to approve this nonsense. What about elderly people who don’t have smart phones???
App is broken 1/5
The app no longer lets me pay with my saved credit card information. After opening a support ticket to get help, it was marked as “solved” even though nobody responded to the ticket and nothing was fixed in the app. Amateur support for sure.
Issues with payment option 2/5
By frustrated in MKE
I think the app is great overall, but recently have been really annoyed by a glitch that prohibits me from adding a payment option. I can’t reach anyone in tech support via email or by phone. First world problems I know, but grrrr...
Transaction fee 1/5
Was charged a credit card transaction fee for a 0.00 charge
GPS parking location not matching with real spot.
Parking clock started before 8 3/5
Just got here and paid parking starts at 8am- clock online started right away
Doesn’t work consistently 1/5
It indicated that there was an error in processing my credit card. So I moved my car and parked somewhere else. Then I got charged for the original spot. Not good.
This has happened several times.
Parking zone 2/5
By I use coupons
When I typed in the parking # where it is asks for parking zone, it did not show my actual parking location which made me nervous whether what I was doing was accurate or not.
Toooo long to download app 1/5
Get with it MKE
Rental Cars 2/5
Love the app except I’m always using a Rental car and having to add a licensee plate makes no sense if I want to pay for the parking.
Deceptive af 1/5
Instead of zone number which makes no sense AT ALL, put SPACE NUMBER so people know what the hell you want and how to use the app so they dont get tickets 30mins after their time expires!!!
Difficult to use and takes too long to set up 1/5
By Irritated in Chicago
Way too complicated for simple parking
Not functioning 1/5
By Joe La Zanya
If you want to get a ticket use this app
Don’t break open your piggy bank....get the app! 5/5
By Jonathan Dowling
I’m tired of putting quarters in the meters with no registered time. Then I have to go to my credit card. This is typical incompetence from our high tax city.
Super easy to use, really convenient, and truthfully, it keeps me from over-paying when I don't need to pay and alerts me when my time is almost up, avoiding those pesky tickets! I'd say it's a necessity for being downtown.

Saves my life every time I’m downtown Milwaukee. Thank you! Thank you...
Please fix payment method 1/5
I used to love this app, however for the last two weeks the app doesn’t recognize my payment method and asks me to add one. When I click on the link to add a payment method, the only ones available to add are ones I haven’t used yet. I’m out of options to add as I already used 5 of them and those are not available to use after you add them. PLEASE HELP!!!!! Fix the payment method access.
Works fine once figured out 2/5
By Robert Behnke
But figuring out the zone vs space (are they the same?) was complicated. QR code in meter did not work.
By Gabe is a taken nickname
This app claims I’m at the same random place no matter where I am. Just paid for my zone but the meter still says expired.
MKE App 4/5
By mke user
Nice app and convenient. Not intuitive!
Parking app works well, needs a step up 4/5
By Mark in Milwaukee
If you know the meter number the parking app works great to accomplish its core functionality. It should be improved to show the meter number in the app by pointing to individual parking spaces on the map. Also, while 38 cents seems de minimis, its a big % increase when the meter rate is 50 cents per hour. The city should license the software and charge only enough to recover the cost.
It’s ok 2/5
The app logs me out frequently.
MKE PARKING SYSTEM IS MF BS 1/5
By +ODD FLASH
SOooooo stupid. Does anybody remember when you could put coins into the machine? It took me 20 minutes to set up the app, create an account, and pay too much too much to park for an hour and a half.
Forced to Pay Fees 1/5
It’s ridiculous that we are forced to use this app and pay the exorbitant fees. I constantly have tourists complaining to me how hard it is to use, especially if it’s just once for a short visit to Milwaukee. It sends WAY too many emails and notifications as well.
Install an app and then create an account? 1/5
I just want to park as a visitor from out of town who isn’t coming back anytime soon. Excellent way to discourage shoppers and tourists.
How about a guest option or just forgo the account creation (skip)? You don’t need it.
App always thinks Apple Pay failed 2/5
With the new version the app always thinks payment failed. I’m using Apple Pay. The app reports a failure with payment. So i try to pay again and then I’m told the spot is already taken (which tells me payment went thru), then I’ll check my iOS wallet and see payment did go thru, and I even get a reminder text when my time is almost expired.
But the app doesn’t let me review my time because it doesn’t think I paid.
Everyone. Three times in last 4 days.
No way to add a favorite spot anymore (03-May-2018) 5/5
Earlier I could add a favorite spot from the app. Now no more! I could not find an option in the app (under favorites) to add another favorite spot. Please fix this ASAP!
Now this really is difficult to use 1/5
I was attempting to pay for parking in Downtown MKE. The app came up and asked for a zone. Didn’t know what was being asked for and the help button wasn’t helpful. The phone has GPS and showed where I was. Would not accept the space number without the zone. What is the zone? And why can’t it Determine the zone by that information?
Attempted to pay at two kiosks and then determined that the entire payment system was down.
New version is awful! 2/5
New app doesn’t know the city I’m in. Use location services??
New app buttons and labels are super small and don’t make sense.
New app setting time duration is sloppy, takes the wrong setting most of the time.
New app doesn’t know that 0424 = 424. Wasted a good few minutes and had to run back across a busy street to figure that out.
Old version was quick, easy, and fast.
Junk app 1/5
App doesn’t work. Trying to reset password never sends any email. Cannot get back in any way i try.
Just feed the meter by hand. It is much faster than this waste of my time app.
Will not allow recharge, even when under time limit 1/5
When you're parking in a 2-hr spot, beware that you can only pay the app once for that spot.
I paid 1 hr in a 2 hr spot and tried to recharge. I walked back to my car to find a $22 ticket. After confronting the meter maid, I followed the process of appeal (which involved faxing a broken fax line), but the snail mail took too much time to arrive which then gave me a late fee.
I clearly outlined this issue in the appeal process and just now received my rejection notice, 4 months later.
Clearly, this app doesn't function as it should. Clearly, this app doesn't communicate clearly its function.
Clearly, Milwaukee needs revenue badly.
Clearly, I am not pleased about their extortion.
Nobody wants to pay to Park.. 5/5
Of course this is like saying here's the fastest way to pay your taxes. Anyone in Milw who doesn't appreciate this app apparently didn't live back when you had to shake down your seats for quarters to park. Sure there is a minor surcharge but to just type in the location number and your time (which you can extend up to the max 2 hour limit if you stay longer) and have it charge the "$1.88" for 57 minutes is the way to go. Just Set up your cars by license plate in advance and set up payment type in advance. After that it's 10 seconds once you find a spot. Again, not defending parking fees themselves but if you're stuck paying them this at least makes it as painless as possible.
Basically a scam 1/5
By Farts smell bad
Meters won't read cards well during the rain, leaving this as your only option, app is a joke trying to trick users into a "master pass" at several times. Then they add a surcharge for you to be inconvenienced by all this nonsense....what crap
It's perfect and easy to use. I love that I can pay the meter without change, while walking to my destination, or for other people!
Highly recommend it!!! 5/5
Super convenient and super useful! Really recommend it if you don't always have courters on hand for parking meters. So glad I got this, makes parking easier, especially being a college student where classes can go long sometimes and I can't run to the meter
Great app 5/5
Love how easy it is!
So convenient! 5/5
Has saved me so much time, inconvenience of making sure I have change, and has saved me a lot of parking tickets!!! I tell everyone about this app.
Ease of use 5/5
Love the app. Easy to use and very easy to park with.
Works well 5/5
Game changing in snow country!
Great app! 5/5
Very easy and convenient!
So easy 5/5
Download the app! So worth the extra pennies to use.
