Parkmobile is a pay by phone parking solution and certain information varies depending on your location. Note that the information in this article is ONLY for the parking areas at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee where Parkmobile is offered.
Click a topic below to jump to that section, or just scroll through all sections.
The Parkmobile transaction fees are waived in your parking area. 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.
When registering for pay by phone parking service with Parkmobile via our website you're given two membership options: "Preferred Membership", which carries with it a monthly fee, and "Basic Membership", which has no monthly fee. In your area, it currently makes the most sense for you to select the ‘Basic Membership’ instead of the ‘Preferred Membership’. Since your transaction fees are waived, you wouldn’t get the biggest advantage of a lowered transaction fee anyway. In the future there will be many more benefits included with the ‘Preferred Membership’ which may influence your decision to choose it for a monthly fee instead of the no monthly fee ‘Basic Membership’
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 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.
In Zone 59003, 59022, 59010, & 59033 officers will not view your payment in a handheld device. For more details, please click here.
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 metered space. The zone number listing below is provided as a reference only. You MUST identify your Parkmobile zone number from the green Parkmobile signage located in your parking area to ensure you start your session correctly.
At the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee the zone numbers range from 59001-59036.

The Parkmobile toll-free phone number to reach the automated system to register and/or start or extend your parking sessions is: 877-727-5003 (877 PARK 003). If you are parking at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee 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.
In zones 59003 & 59022 there is no automated system access to start sessions. The parking session payments made with Parkmobile in these gated parking facilities are completed by the scanning of a gated/garage entry ticket. This can only be done with our iPhone and Android apps. In these gated facilities, payment sessions cannot be started by calling the automated voice response system used in non-gated facilities.
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 12 hours, and you chose 1 hour, you can then extend your session before it expires for up to an additional 11 hours. Note that extensions are separate transactions, and therefore each extension carries a transaction fee as well.
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. You can log on to your Personal Pages online at www.parkmobile.com to obtain a receipt for your parking session.

You should see Parkmobile signs in the garage. One with instructions at the entry gate, and a reminder sign at the payment machine.
