New Parking App Unveiled

2016-07-06_13-29-13Hoboken motorists will soon be able to feed the meter with their smart phone, under an arrangement between the City of Hoboken and a parking app developer.

App developer Parkmobile LLC and city officials said Tuesday that the new application will allow people to add time to their spaces remotely using their iPhone, Android, Blackberry or other smart device. City officials said the app would be phased into locations throughout the city starting in less than a month, and that all metered spaces would eventually be covered by the app.

The Parkmobile app lets users add time to their parking space remotely. 

Customers will be able to download the Parkmobile app onto their phone or register at www.parkmobile.com. They can then use the app, the internet or a toll free phone number to pay for parking.

Hoboken Police officers and Parking Utility agents equipped with a wireless device will be able to see that a parked car has been paid for through Parkmobile.
Mobile app users can sign up for alerts 15 minutes before their time expires.

Hoboken will join Newark, Union City, West New York, Bloomfield, Montclair, Summit, Chatham, Ridgewood, Glen Rock and New Brunswick is adopting the app.

New York City, Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C., are among cities outside New Jersey that have adopted the app.
