The City of St. Petersburg and Parkmobile have partnered on several new enhancements of the Parkmobile mobile payments program. Effective immediately, the new Resident Discount Program will allow registered St. Pete residents to use the app to pay for parking in the city without having to pay a convenience fee of .35 cents per transaction.
Another enhancement to the program includes an increase to the on-street parking duration from 2-3 hours to a 6-hour max for an additional charge. This enhancement is due to the many requests by citizens and customers who want to enjoy the downtown amenities for an extended period of time and still be able to utilize on-street parking spaces.
Additionally, residents using Parkmobile may donate through the app to the St. Pete “Power of Change” Donation program benefiting the homeless. Anyone wishing to contribute to the program may use Zone 2000 in the app to choose their level of giving, with no Parkmobile transaction fee.
