BROOKLINE –Town Administrator Mel Kleckner announces that starting Monday, Aug. 15, the town will no longer be a participant in the ParkBoston app, and will solely offer the Passport Parking app for residents and visitors paying for public parking.
In-zone notifications to parkers alerting them of the change began on June 30.
Any parkers who previously used the ParkBoston app to park in Brookline should download the Passport Parking app on their mobile device. The Passport Parking app is available to download for free on the App Store and Google Play, or users can manage their parking online at passportparking.com. All user account information is securely transferred, including any prepaid wallets.
Passport Parking enables drivers to safely pay for and manage sessions through their smartphones.
To begin a parking session, users can easily create an account with their email address or phone number and enter their parking location, license plate number, and desired length of stay. Users can extend sessions remotely and review parking history and receipts with just a few taps.
“Passport Parking allows our residents and visitors access to the convenient smartphone payment technology for cashless parking solutions in our community,” said Brookline Transportation Administrator Todd Kirrane.
Brookline has worked with Passport, the technology provider for mobile pay parking in many cities and regions across Massachusetts and the U.S., for its mobile pay parking since 2016. The ParkBoston app will no longer be available for parking in Brookline after Aug. 15.
Parkers may still pay for parking using multi-space or single-space meters at their parking location in lieu of an app.
