WASHINGTON – Parkmobile users listen up: You’re about to be charged more.
The benefits to users of Parkmobile are simple. People can pay for parking without running back and forth to feed a meter or digging for change only to come out empty handed.
And the downside?
On Oct. 29, the price for a transaction goes from 32 cents per to 45 cents, a nearly 50 percent rise in price.
It’s unclear whether the price jump will be the last.
A new feature is being introduced to offset the higher cost called Parkmobile Wallet – if users pay more upfront, the fees will be lower. At least 400,000 people in D.C. have already signed up for the service.
