RIVER FOREST, IL – The Village of River Forest has introduced a mobile payment parking service to its METRA commuter parking lots as of June 16, 2014. This service pairs the Village of River Forest with Charlotte, NC-based PassportParking and Chicago, IL-based Total Parking Solutions. The service allows parking customers a way to pay for parking directly through a mobile device.
To utilize the new Passport Mobile Pay service, customers must first register for free via the PassportParking app, mobile website, or by calling the local number listed on PassportParking signage. Customers can even register with just the push of a button using Facebook.
Once registration is complete, customers can pay for parking through the app, website, or phone number. PassportParking Mobile Pay also provides customers with a notification when their time expires. Customers will not have to display any proof of payment as enforcement agents can view payments through a wireless device or through the pay stations currently in place.
Also, for a limited time, customers can purchase $25.00 worth of parking credit for only $20.00. Customers should choose “Zone Cash” when selecting payment methods during the checkout process.
