Parkmobile payments do not integrate with the meters in this area. While your payment will not show on the meter, the officer will primarily use your zone number to view your Parkmobile payment on a handheld device. As such, please make sure to add any additional license plate numbers to your account before creating a parking session in order to make sure your parking transactions are correctly created.
Zone numbers are a critical part of your transaction and must be recorded correctly in order for your parking session to be identified correctly by the parking enforcement officers. Zone numbers vary from lot to lot. The zone number listing below is provided as a reference only. You MUST identify your Parkmobile zone number from the Parkmobile signage located in your parking area to ensure you start your session correctly.
In the parking areas operated by Philadelphia Parking Authority in Philadelphia, PA the zone number ranges from 990000-999999 and 910000-949999.
The Parkmobile toll-free phone number to reach the automated system to register and/or start, stop or extend your parking sessions is: 877-727-5303 (877 PARK 303). If you are parking in the areas operated by Philadelphia Parking Authority in Philadelphia, PA and call any other Parkmobile phone number you will be at risk parking in a zone in the wrong geographical area and the parking officers in your area wouldn't see your parking payment in that case.
You can stop a session early if you do not need the entire time available, and you will be charged the appropriate parking fee for the time used, according to the rate structure in your area. If you do not stop your session early it will automatically expire at the time noted when you started the session.
Please Note: You will be able to start, stop, or extend a parking session if need be.
