Students, faculty, staff and visitors can now park and pay using their mobile phone

September 5, 2018, LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA --- Students, faculty, staff, and visitors can now skip the pay stations and purchase parking in moments with PayByPhone at California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA). Acting as an alternative to cash payments, the mobile parking app offers a convenient way for drivers to pay, while allowing the university’s parking services to easily manage these locations on campus.

Currently PayByPhone is available on the top level of Parking Structure C on campus, with more locations planned to be released throughout the year. In addition to making payments easier, the app provides text reminders prior to a session expiring, and the ability to extend a parking session remotely. Drivers who are pressed for time can even begin a parking session without registering for the app.

“PayByPhone gives our students the convenience of purchasing their daily parking through a mobile app. No more waiting in line to pay and display,” explained Carmen Gachupin, Director of Parking & Transportation Services, CSULA. “This option gives college students one less task to stress about.”

CSULA joins university counterparts across the country that have adopted the parking app including Duke, Florida International University, The University of California, Berkeley and The Massachusetts Institute of Technology. With PayByPhone’s recent addition of support for Spanish, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese, the app has become ideal for diverse campus communities.
