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

August 8, 2018, DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA --- Students, faculty, staff, and visitors can now skip the pay stations and purchase hourly parking in moments with PayByPhone. Acting as an alternative to cash payments, the mobile parking app offers a convenient way for drivers to pay.

Currently PayByPhone is available at 12 non-gated visitor parking lots across the university campus. The app allows drivers to purchase the hourly parking available at these locations, while also providing text reminders prior to a session expiring, and the ability to extend a parking session remotely. Drivers can even begin a parking session without registering for the app, and habitual parkers can use the “favorites” feature to save the location numbers of parking spots that they frequent.

“Adding PayByPhone around campus gives our guests another option for payment in lots that sometimes only have just one form of payment,” said Andrew Hinz, senior operations manager for Duke Parking & Transportation Services.

Duke joins university counterparts across the country that have adopted the parking app including Florida International University, The University of California, Berkeley and The Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
