Transaction Fees (based on Membership Level):

The Parkmobile transaction fees are waived in your parking area as Summit is not charging their customers a transaction fee at this time. The parking operator absorbs the cost of the transaction fee, so you only pay the standard daily parking rate when using Parkmobile, just as you do when you pay at the parking areas. In order to take advantage of the waived transaction fee in Summit NJ you must sign up for the Basic Membership and choose the Parkmobile Wallet as your payment method.

There are Preferred and Corporate Memberships available, but at this time neither would benefit you over the Basic Membership since Summit has chosen to waive the transaction fee. You should choose Basic Membership and sign up for Parkmobile Wallet to have your transaction fees waived. By default when you register via any other method other than the website, your membership level is set to "Basic Membership". 

Additionally, there is no cost to download one of our mobile apps and no cost to register via a mobile app or online.

How Will Enforcement Officers Know That I've Paid? Will My Payment Show on the Meter?

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, zone number, and space number (where applicable) 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 Number Information and Range:

Zone numbers (and space numbers if parked in a lot or garage or meter numbers if parked on-street) 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, meter, side of street, etc. You MUST identify your Parkmobile zone number from the green Parkmobile signage located in your parking area.

Can transactions in zones in this area be stopped? Extended? Why or why not?

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 able to extend your parking time, if you see that you need more than the amount you initially paid for, as long as you haven't already chosen the maximum allowed. In order to extend a transaction it must still be active and not yet expired. Example: if the maximum is 2 hours, and you chose 1 hour, you can then extend your session before it expires for up to an additional hour.
