The Bloomington Board of Public Works approved a contract September 24th for a mobile app that drivers can use to pay the new parking meters. The app is offered by the company Park Mobile.
Amanda Feuquay, with the Public Works Department, said the app can be used to start, stop or extend a parking session using a phone, a computer or a 1-800 number. She said some businesses might also use the app for their customers.
“If I walk into a merchant, and they’ve decided they want to pay for my parking that evening, or that day, they can call park mobile. All they need is my name, my license plate number. And they can pay for my parking session while I am there. They can also order validation codes for their customers
