Visitors to Greenwich who park on Greenwich Avenue now have another way to pay for parking.
People who use town parking lots have been able to use mobile devices to pay for parking, in addition to the multi-space or single space meters.
Soon people will be use mobile devices to pay for parking on Greenwich Avenue too.
Parking Services, recently brought under the direction of Deputy Police Chief Mark Marino, will expand use of the parking app on mobile devices at parking meters on street throughout town.
“We encourage downtown visitors to download the Parkmobile app, look for the green Parkmobile sticker on meters, and complete their transaction with a few clicks on their phone,” said First Selectman Peter Tesei. “Customers who prefer to pay via credit card, where available, or coins are still free to do so.”
Deputy Chief of Police Marino said that a major part of the Parking Services Department’s mission is to make the parking experience in Greenwich as convenient and hassle free as possible. “We feel that the additional option of paying for parking on Greenwich Avenue through Parkmobile is in keeping with this desired goal,” he said.
During the previous 12 months, more than 40% of transactions on surface parking lots served by multi-space meters have been made through the Parkmobile app.
This is in line with other municipalities and is expected to expand further.
Parkmobile is available to download from your device’s app store.
