ParkMobile will be the sole vendor for paying for parking#

Parking Services to transition to ParkMobile for downtown parking structures

https://app.parkmobile.io/zone/start

Parking Services is updating the parking app to improve the customer experience.

ParkMobile will be the sole vendor for smartphone app payment, for parking at downtown parking structures and parking lots, starting July 1, 2022.

Users of the three downtown parking structures and the Mason Lot who pay for parking using a smartphone app will need to download and begin using ParkMobile starting on July 1, as the previous FC Parking app will cease to function.

Payment kiosks will remain in all parking structures and the Mason Lot, and the process for paying to park at kiosks will remain unchanged.

As well, rates for hourly parking at three parking structures and the Mason Lot remain unchanged. Parking is still free for the first hour in the parking structures, though users must still initiate a parking session, regardless of duration of stay. ParkMobile already provides app-based parking payment services at Colorado State University; the same app can be used to park in the downtown structures and the Mason Lot.

ParkMobile is the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in North America, using a contactless approach to help millions of people easily find and pay for parking on their mobile devices and is available in the Apple App Store for iOS devices, the Google Play store for Android devices, and can also be accessed via web browser.

Registration is quick and easy, and users can add up to five vehicles to their account. Parking sessions can be extended directly from your mobile device with the option to customize expiration reminders.   

Questions about parking can be directed to Parking Services at parkingservices@fcgov.com or by calling 970-221-6617 and pressing 0.
