VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – September 28, 2020 – Students, faculty, staff and visitors to the University of Washington Tacoma campus will soon have the opportunity to make smarter parking decisions when the school introduces PayByPhone, a leading global provider of mobile parking payment solutions.  

This fall, the PayByPhone app will be available for over 300 parking spaces across the University of Washinton's Tacoma campus.

“As we plan a safe return to campus for both students and faculty, we were looking for a safer, more convenient way to pay for parking throughout campus, and PayByPhone provided a user-friendly way to do so,” said James Sinding, Program Operations Manager at the University of Washington, Tacoma.

Once the PayByPhone app is launched, a motorist enters the parking location and length of stay, and pays. When a parking session expires, the app sends users a text message prompting them to extend their parking session remotely, saving the hassle of having to return to their car. 

“Tacoma will be the third University of Washington campus to offer the PayByPhone app to students, faculty, staff and visitors, alongside the UW campuses in Bothell and Seattle.” said Roamy Valera, PayByPhone CEO. “We look forward to continuing helping the University of Washington community upgrade and improve the way in which it parks.”
