WASHINGTON (AP) — Drivers can now pay for parking in the District of Columbia with the help of their phone.
D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray has announced a pay-by-phone parking service. The service will be available at all of the roughly 17,000 metered parking spaces in the district.
Under the system, customers will register for free at http://www.parkmobile.com/and can then pay for parking with mobile phones through a mobile application, the Internet or a toll-free call. Each transaction costs 32 cents.
