Upper Marlboro Partners with Passport to Launch New Mobile Parking Payment App

PassportParking® mobile app introduces easier way to pay for parking

Upper Marlboro, MD — Parking just got easier for the Town of Upper Marlboro. The Town will be announcing the launch of a mobile application for quicker parking payments. The PassportParking® app is powered by Passport, the global leader for parking and transit payments across cities and universities throughout North America.

The Town implemented the mobile parking app for a simpler way for drivers to pay for their parking sessions. Drivers can also use the app to:

  • Monitor parking sessions
  • Extend time remotely for the Town’s Church Street parking lot
  • View payment history
  • Receive email receipts

The app also features a digital wallet, which provides parkers with the ability to pre-load funds using their debit or credit cards to easily pay for future parking. Users can take advantage of initially loading $10 onto their digital wallets and thereafter can load funds in $5 increments to pay for their parking sessions.

“Passport is thrilled to bring our industry-leading mobile pay technology to the Town of Marlboro,” said Sarah Russell, project manager at Passport. “We’re excited to bring a mobile option to the town that seamlessly combines paying for parking to managing and extending a parking session in just a few taps.”

This system comes at no cost to the Town, as users pay a $0.45 convenience fee in addition to the parking rates. The system runs off the existing Town meters, with no need to upgrade the Downtown parking meters.

PassportParking is free to download through the App Store or Google Play. Users can also manage their parking at ppprk.com.

This morning, Town Public Works installed a Traffic Logix Solar-powered speed sign on Old Marlboro Pike (Rte. 725). This sign both alerts drivers to their speed, while collecting traffic data simultaneously (vehicle count, average speed, speed violators ect). This data will allow the Town Police to strategically deploy officers to enforce the speed when the most violations occur. This speed sign does not issue tickets.

Residents and the public can monitor LIVE Town traffic data gathered by the sign here: http://streetsoncloud.com/public/Town+of+Upper+Marlboro
