The Parkmobile transaction fees are waived in your parking area as the Palm Desert campus 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 San Bernardino at the Palm Desert campus you must sign up for the Basic Membership.
There are Preferred and Corporate Memberships available, but at this time neither would benefit you over the Basic Membership since the Palm Desert campus has chosen to waive the transaction fee. You should choose Basic Membership 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.
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.
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 can vary by area. You MUST identify your Parkmobile zone number from the green Parkmobile signage located in your parking lot.
In the parking areas in San Bernardino, CA at the Palm Desert campus where Parkmobile is offered the zone number is 7101.
The Parkmobile toll-free phone number to reach the automated system to register and/or start or extend your parking sessions is: 877-727-5932 (877 PARK 932). If you are parking in the parking areas in San Bernardino, CA 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 and MasterCard
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 meter maximum. Example: if the meter maximum is 2 hours, and you chose 1 hour, you can then extend your session before it expires for an additional hour. Note that extensions are separate transactions, and therefore each extension carries a transaction fee as well.
