Parkmobile payments do not integrate with the meters in this area. While your payment will not show on the meter, the officer will use your license plate number and 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 by lot or meter. You MUST identify your Parkmobile zone number from the green Parkmobile signage located in your parking area or space.

The Parkmobile toll-free phone number to reach the automated system to register and/or start or extend your parking sessions is: 877-727-5009 (877 PARK 009). If you are parking in the CampusParc operated parking areas at Ohio State University in Columbus, OH 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.
The credit cards accepted in your area are: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express
You can not stop a session once started. You must select the amount of time you want in advance and pay for that time with your credit card. If you chose more time than you needed, you will not be able to stop the session or get a refund.
You are not able to extend your parking sessions created in every area on campus. Some sessions are created as individual time blocks for certain rates. In order to get a certain rate you must choose the appropriate time block. Therefore you are not able to choose a lower time block and then extend for an additional time block later. However, if you choose to park by the hour you may be able to extend your parking time up to the maximum amount of time allowed.
Parkmobile does not own, operate, manage or enforce the parking areas. We don’t issue tickets and we can’t remove them for you. We can provide you with the contact information for your parking authority, if you don’t have it, so you can contact them to begin your dispute. You can use your parking receipt from your Personal Pages to include with your dispute.
To dispute a citation, follow the instructions on the ticket or call 614-688-0000. You can log on to your Personal Pages online at www.parkmobile.com to obtain a receipt for your parking session.
