VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - November 6th, 2020 –Residents and visitors of Arlington, Massachusetts will soon have the opportunity to make smarter parking decisions when the town introduces PayByPhone, a leading global provider of mobile parking payment solutions.
PayByPhone will be available at 500+ spaces at surface lots and on the street around the town.
This partnership with PayByPhone will provide a new convenient parking option for residents and visitors of the hub-city of Arlington, allowing them to take advantage of events, amenities and businesses throughout the town.
“Many have requested a parking app option since we installed meters in 2016,” said Adam Chapdelaine, Arlington’s Town Manager. “We are pleased to introduce the PayByPhone app, which provides a convenient and secure option, but one that is also safer during a pandemic to protect visitors who come to support local businesses.”
PayByPhone is a hassle-free solution for 35 million registered drivers, allowing them to pay for parking with just their smartphone. The app sends text messages automatically when a parking session expires, and gives drivers the ability to extend their parking session without needing to return to their vehicle. Drivers can also begin a session without registering for an account, making it ideal for those who are pressed for time.
“Municipalities in North America are increasingly adopting the PayByPhone app because it simplifies and creates a better parking experience for residents and visitors.” said Roamy Valera, PayByPhone CEO. “Drivers in the Town of Arlington will be joining their neighbouring PayByPhone users in the City of Lynn, the City of Somerville, the Town of Concord and the MBTA line.”
