Life gets easier with parking app
Mostly good, but can be irritating 3/5
By El Rico 72
The good: Convenience, and it’s great to have an app in your pocket when you have to extend your meter time, and to get warnings when time is running out.
It’s sometimes glitchy.
It’s easy to forget to click the last button “Start Parking”. I’ve gotten one ticket because of that.
It will let you pay even on holidays when parking is free. Today is MLK Day, I paid, then later realized I didn’t need to.
It defaults to Apple Pay if you have it set up and won’t let you change the default pay method, adding an extra step to the process.
And, lastly, your payment only applies to your car. So, there isn’t money left on the meter for the next car.
Poor app 1/5
By Newport Parking
The amount of time to register and then download, add credit card, then add car information, then exit out then relog back into the app then go through the security log in and finally pay. Wow, nice 20 minutes waiting with elderly parents to pay for parking. I would have gladly paid the $65 dollar parking ticket for the amount of time and aggregation for this stupid parking app caused. Complete waste of tax dollar money cost for this app.
Great innovation 5/5
It’s a game changer. Parking meters meet the 21st century
Lost my info 1/5
By this is cap
App was installed, all my info had been entered and correctly used for several years and today it was all messed up.☹️
Bad app 1/5
By not happy wih First Republic
Pain to use doesn’t recognize zones
A little bit confusing to use as first time 4/5
By B L .
The app asked me to enter credit card info twice. I was not sure if the parking activity started or not.
Visa Checkout nightmare 1/5
The new Visa checkout is a nightmare, tedious to set up.
Terrible service 1/5
App defaulted to my wife’s car on the app. Had to pay twice for the same spot even though I tried to change within 1 minute. Terrible lack of modifications on this crap
Credit card 1/5
No way to easily add credit card to app
Absolutely horrible 1/5
Took forever to make an account and pay. So annoying. I hate that you have to use it for parking now.
UnReliable Parking 1/5
I was shown the nearest available parking spot and I reserved and paid through the app, but still got the citation ticket, the reason was “HP reserved spot”, there’s no such sign there in the spot or ParkMobile even didn’t alert me it’s a reserved spot, the meterID has only one spot, the ticket charge is $301, ParkMobile is no way taking the responsibility, and I will never use this kind untrusted app.
This app is awesome! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 super convenient! Good job guys!!!
Poor support 1/5
App works great when it works. Be prepared if you have any issues or get a ticket you have to email them and I still have yet to hear back. Looks like I have to pay a ticket and it was a simple solution they could help me fix. So it will cost me $25 in the end when it should’ve been the $1.40 I paid to park.
Parts of App need work 1/5
Changing your selected car should be a hard stop on this App! This part of using the App is not intuitive and you can’t cancel a transaction or edit it to change your car after you’ve “started parking”. So frustrating and this leads to parking tickets!!
So convenient 5/5
By Hog City Rider
Most terminals are broken and this app alleviates the pain
Terrible and you’ll get a ticket 3/5
On last thanksgiving night at 11:50pm I wanted to park for one or 2 hours but only 10 min was available... why ? Because it’s bugged! So i checked it out after midnight and no way to extend so i guessed it was free after midnight. One hour after I came back to my car and I was able to admire a fantastic ticket on my front windows car... because that app failed to pay! Not me. I am done with that app. Please juste use machines and your credit card instead!
UPDATE: i got a check from parking mobile. They admitted their fault and assumed it. Thank you for that.
Can’t pay for less than an hour!!! 1/5
By deanna chappell
If the option says, “Pay by the hour and minute” you should be able to choose zero hours and 20 minutes or one hour and 10 minutes or maybe two hours and five minutes. You shouldn’t have to choose only one hour or two hours or three hours!!! Total piracy!
Doesnt work well 1/5
By Stef the best
I added this thinking it would save time and it didnt update the meter i was at to show green. Hoping since i paid i dont get a ticket. Also when i tried oaying by card at the meter it didnt work. Very frustrating experience.
Inconvenient and time consuming 1/5
This app makes you pay for 1:30 when the minimum is 1:00 in my city forcing me to pay an extra dollar on top of the $0.35 fee. Then makes you enter your license plate number. The space is paid for for the allotted time. It doesn’t matter what car is or isn’t in the space.
Garbage! Don’t waste your money trying to see if it works! 1/5
No refunds so when it doesn’t read on the meter you paid, you can still get a ticket, even if you have a receipt. You have to go to court to dispute charges, not worth the time!
My time was not added correctly after I put coins in the meter for 50 minutes. I purchased another 50 minutes and it’s counting down from the 50 minutes. Should have two hours on there.
Saver from corrupted DC park enforcement men & women 4/5
I used to use quarters to park my car on the streets of Washington DC. Before the meters time expired, these lazy a.. and corrupted park enforcement people ticketed me! To dispute the tickets, I took pictures & send them to DMV; but as one expect the bureaucracy of the city, it's been almost a year since I heard from them!
Avoid all this by using this app.
Always hard at Ponce City Market 1/5
Every time I use this app here it either won’t connect or wants me to change my password or put in my email or some hoop.
DO NOT USE! 1/5
By Fire manly
The Minneapolis Parks and Recreation department ticketed me TWICE even though I paid at the kiosk. I don’t have time to fight it in court. They’re too stupid and lazy to check the kiosk. It’s a illegal SCAM put on by the city facilitated be ParkMobile.
I had a card on their and my vehicle and every time I went to put in the zone it says add card when IT’S ALREADY ON IT. Fix this bug
So convenient So easy 5/5
By Etienned De Joie
Our San Francisco friends visited us here in New Orléàns.
They were so jealous wondering how New Orléàns could have such a high tech on-Street parking system when high tech capitol of the universe still uses coin operated meters.
Ah HAH! Love it.
Best thing ever 5/5
Makes life so easy to park your car!
Convenience And Timely 5/5
It’s convenient to be directed to the nearest parking when your immediate location is unavailable. I really like the idea of paying for only the time I occupy the parking I utilized.
Why do I have to keep adding my info 2/5
Alex Macdonald 1/5
Park mobile’s affiliate golden gate ferry in Larkspur ca...., is over zealous about citations, with no appeal regarding fines..,
Just because ones Visa cards expiration date has not been updated... it’s a $45 fine.., the app should remind the user to update..
Convenient and easy to use but more expensive. Last minute resort
This is by far the worst app aside from Kronos that I’ve encounters. Never saves my updated payment information and often times won’t let me “park” in an open spot and I will have to wait upwards of 20-49 minutes before it actually works. Please for the love that is good, fix the bugs. Your latest update did absolutely nothing to fix anything.
Hoping for Apple Pay support 4/5
By I'm So Unique
Very useful app — just wish it supported Apple Pay
Steals your money if you forget to deactivate. 1/5
I forgot to deactivate my parking 3 times, and the clock kept running way past after I left the parking spot — the whole day, charging me $11.50 each time (instead of ~$0.50 for the time I was actually there). I learned later the business model of this company is by counting on its users to forget to deactivate like me. Despite how convenient it is, avoid this app like the plague.
The Shortest duration of time you can do is an hour 1/5
By Mr Glock 23c
What about the people that are only parking to go in the store for five or 10 minutes
Would be better if I could nickname my credit cards (work, home) like I do w Uber
Hard to use 1/5
By Ben without a nickname
First it asks for a zone. But zone really means parking meter. Then it asks for a credit card. But then when I try and park it says add a vehicle and I have to re-enter the credit card
More convenient 5/5
By the Rate that counts
Quicker and easier to pay.
Great App 5/5
By Mia Schexnayder-Davis
This app is great and user friendly!
Bad Update 2/5
Use to be a great app, worked every time but now since the update I have problems logging in, problems with the Park zones not being correct and just general slowness.
Maybe there are more bugs to work out?? Wish it would be reliable again.
Best App 5/5
By Mr.Fantastic 123
This is a very convenient app , totally awesome!
Great app if you have 45 minutes to set up account 1/5
Why is there a transaction fee?
Good service 5/5
I like the ease of use and availability
I have never had an application with so many problems. I have tried for 3 days in a row and I can’t believe it . The payment doesn’t go though first , sometimes it doesn’t even work ! Total disaster
app does not recognize the vehicle added on the acct.. everytime when trying to check out will ask for the vehicle to be added and the app is not user friendly
Text Notifications 3/5
Text notifications still does not work even after the most recent update.
