New Pay-By-Phone Parking System

10/25/12

This month, the City of Coral Gables is rolling out its mobile phone parking payment system to a newer, more convenient PayByPhone technology for approximately 4,200 on-street and surface lot parking spaces throughout the City. Residents and visitors using the new PayByPhone will no longer have to pay a monthly fee or hang a tag in their car as they did with the old park-by-phone.com system that users can continue with through November 10, at which time they will need to switch to the new system.

There are three easy ways to sign up for and start using the PayByPhone technology: 1) Mobile: download the app that works with most smartphones — the iPhone App Store (iOS 3.1 or later), the Google Play Android Store (Android 2.1 or later), or the BlackBerry App World (BlackBerry 8100 or later); 2) Online: www.paybyphone.com; or 3) Call: toll free 866-990-7275.

Coral Gables is one of the first cities in South Florida to adopt PayByPhone’s cutting-edge Near Field Communication (NFC) technology for smartphones. Once you have signed up for an account, look for the sticker below which identifies a PayByPhone meter. You can use NFC by holding your smartphone near the NFC decal on the parking payment station:

Your registered account information will be automatically recalled, so you only have to enter the displayed parking location number and the length of time desired on your smartphone for a quick and secure credit card transaction to take place. An optional text messaging service reminds you before parking time expires and lets you add time remotely without the hassle of returning to the car. Receipts, which can be viewed and printed online, are emailed to you after your purchase.

PayByPhone is also used in downtown Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and other large cities. This technology will make parking in Coral Gables and throughout South Florida more convenient than ever before. To see frequently asked questions or for more information concerning this technology, please visit www.paybyphone.com or call the City of Coral Gables Parking Department at 305-460-5540.
