The City of Starkville, Mississippi, Introduces Paid Parking Through Partnership with ParkMobile

STARKVILLE, Miss., March 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- ParkMobile, the #1 parking app in the U.S., is expanding its services to the City of Starkville, Mississippi by offering zone parking, only payable through ParkMobile. With the partnership, ParkMobile will be available at close to 200 on-street spaces in the midtown and Cotton District areas. In the future, Starkville will look to expand ParkMobile to other areas of the city as well.

"We are excited to partner with ParkMobile as we introduce paid parking to the Starkville community," said Mayor Lynn Spruill. "Through the partnership, we'll be providing an innovative and contactless way for visitors and locals to use their mobile device to pay for parking."

Starkville's own Mississippi State University enacted ParkMobile in 2020, and now drivers are able to use the same app to park around the city. ParkMobile is also available in Jackson, MS and nearby Southeastern cities including Birmingham, Memphis, and Montgomery. The addition of ParkMobile in Starkville will help increase the app's userbase in Mississippi.

ParkMobile has over 30 million users across North America, is available for both iPhone and Android devices, or can also be accessed on a mobile web browser. To pay for zone parking using the mobile or web app, a user enters the zone number posted on signs around the parking spot, selects the amount of time needed, and touches the "Start Parking" button to begin the session. The user can also extend the time of the parking session on their mobile device.

"We are honored that Starkville chose ParkMobile as their premier parking payment system as they integrate paid parking in town," added Jeff Perkins, CEO of ParkMobile. "Mississippi State has done very well on the platform, so we're excited to see the university's hometown of Starkville join the family."
