The City of Topeka has introduced a new way to pay for parking with the Passport Parking mobile app. The app, which is the first mobile pay solution for City of Topeka Downtown parking, offers drivers a contactless option for paying for and managing parking and can be used at over 1,200 metered spaces.
With the Passport Parking app, users can pay to park quickly and remotely from their smartphones. Additionally, users can receive alerts when their parking sessions are ending, get email receipts and view their parking history from one place.
“We wanted to provide an additional payment method to Topeka parkers,” said City of Topeka Deputy Director of Internal Services, Department of Public Works, Hannah Uhlrig. “Adding this new technology will make it easier for parkers to pay so they can truly enjoy what Downtown has to offer.”
By leveraging the Passport Operating System in the Downtown area, the City of Topeka hopes to improve the parking experience, enable mobile parking payments and increase parking compliance.
“Topeka is a growing city dedicated to serving its community and their parking needs,” said Passport’s Director of Municipal Sales, Kelsey Owens. “Passport is excited to partner with the city and provide the technology needed to improve the parking experience and to equip the City for the future.”
The app also works on the campuses of the University of Kansas and Wichita State University.
To pay to park, drivers can download the free Passport Parking app from the App Store and Google Play. Users can also manage their parking online at passportparking.com.
