The new ParkMe app helps drivers find, secure and pay for available parking in Dallas.
ParkMe is free to download and available on iOS, Android and Windows phones. The app includes features such as limited real-time parking availability, direct routing to parking garage entry points, a parking rate calculator to help drivers locate the cheapest option and a timer that alerts drivers when it's time to move their vehicle.
The app also links to the PayByPhone service, which allows drivers to pay for metered parking.
“This is a great step in making travel around the city easier for our citizens and visitors,” said Dallas City Manager A.C. Gonzalez. “This app is an asset to drivers in Dallas.”
The President and CEO of Downtown Dallas Inc. said that this app will especially help drivers navigate Downtown Dallas, where parking is at a premium.
“Creating a user-friendly, easily navigable experience when parking Downtown is key, said John Crawford, President & CEO, Downtown Dallas, Inc. "The ParkMe system achieves many goals outlined in the ‘Reform the approach to parking’ strategy of the Downtown Dallas 360 plan, including leveraging technology to improve consumers’ familiarity with Downtown. This is a significant advancement for our city and the ParkMe app is a welcome, innovative, and exciting addition to the array of technology options and services available to help visitors easily navigate Downtown.”
