The University of Illinois launched MobileMeter, a mobile pay parking application powered by Passport, a platform for mobile payments for parking and transit.

MobileMeter is available in more than 2,100 spaces across the University of Illinois campus.

In addition to paying for parking, users of the MobileMeter app can monitor their parking sessions, extend sessions remotely, view payment history, and receive email receipts. To use MobileMeter, parkers register, select their length of stay, enter the zone number from the meter or decal, and supply payment information.

“Smartphone technology is an essential part of our everyday lives and parking is no exception,” said David Ivey, University of Illinois parking manager. “I anticipate our budding partnership with Passport will not only provide a convenient payment by app option, but also offer a more robust payment platform. Specifically, I believe this partnership will provide a critical alternative to our outgoing CashKey program.”

The MobileMeter parking app is free to download from the App Store and Google Play. Drivers can also manage their parking through the mobile website.
