Parking services will transition to ParkMobile for downtown structures and parking lots

The City of Fort Collins Parking Services Department announces that ParkMobile will begin operations as a single provider to pay for parking in downtown structures and parking lots beginning this weekend.

Users of the three downtown parking structures and the Mason Street lot who pay for parking using a smartphone app will need to download and start using ParkMobile starting July 1, as the old app FC Parking will stop working.

Payment kiosks will remain at all parking structures and the Mason Street lot, and the payment process for parking at kiosks will remain unchanged.

“We are excited about our partnership with ParkMobile,” said Eric Keselburg, director of parking services for the city. “I think users will appreciate being able to have one app for parking downtown, at CSU and other places in the area.”

ParkMobile already provides app-based parking payment services at Colorado State University, and those who already have ParkMobile to use at CSU can use the same app to park at downtown structures and Mason Lot.

Many communities in Colorado and across the country also use ParkMobile for public parking, including Estes Park, Boulder, and Idaho Springs, among others.

Hourly parking rates at parking structures and the Mason lot remain unchanged, and parking is still free for the first hour, although users must still initiate a parking session during this time.

ParkMobile is available in the Apple App Store for iOS devices, the Google Play Store for Android devices and can also be accessed via a web browser.
