Montgomery County Signs Contract with ParkMobile

[Editor’s Note: This article has been updated to clarify that Montgomery County residents will still be able to use the MobileNow! app to pay for parking.]

The popular ParkMobile, a popular parking app used widely in the DC metro area, will soon be available for use by Montgomery County residents, Bethesda Beat reports.

The county has signed a contract with ParkMobile which involves a six-month phase in period, after which time customers will be able to use the app to pay for parking at some on-street meters and all county garages.

ParkMobile will be Montgomery County’s second contract with a parking app. County residents will be able to use ParkMobile as well as continue to use the MobileNow! app, which the county has contracted with since 2009.

    It’s about time. Nobody else uses that Mobile Now app. The county should not renew the contract with them.

    This is disappointing. MobileNow is the far more customer friendly app, allowing you to “set it and forget it” then stop your session when you return to your car, which is a huge advantage over the old standard of paying with quarters. With ParkMobile, you must estimate how long you’ll be parked and “feed the meter” if you stay longer or forfeit your money if your stay is shorter. I’ve had no trouble having an app for MoCo and an app for DC on my phone, and have always preferred the MobileNow system.

    It is important to note that MobileNOW continues to provide mobile payment for all of Montgomery County. We welcome adding ParkMobile with its large Washington DC userbase.

    MobileNOW will continue to serve the good people of Montgomery County. We thank the 10,000 plus people daily who use and enjoy MobileNOW daily. Thank you for your continued support.

    Happy Thanksgiving

    John Oglesby, CEO MobileNOW

    Just got a citation today BEFORE our ParkMobile session expired. I’m super-angry about it.
