From registering and paying for your parking in seconds, to extending it without having to return to your vehicle, and reminders of when it ends, we know you have more to worry about than parking. The PayByPhone app can be used in over 1,000+ cities worldwide & is now available in 12 languages, making it easier than ever.

Lacks the most obvious search feature in the entire world: showing location results on a map. Sometimes even searching the exact location ID returns no results if a garage or spot is just a little too far away. So stupid. And you can't search by name or street address. The only reason this app can suck this bad is that they have municipal monopolies, and cities are motivated to have you get a ticket instead of successfully paying for parking. Garbage!

Hello Nicklas, Apologies for that, there may be an issue with the location. Please note that some parking operators do not have the maps feature enabled. Our support staff can investigate if you share the location code with us - please reply with lot # or open a ticket here: https://paybyphone.ada.support/chat/ Thank you! PBP, Jill

Pros: it's quick and conveniant after setup Cons: minimum incriments are an hour. There's no reason why it couldn't be 15 minutes, this is penny pinching extortion and a scummy move. And, you've removed to ability to pass-on my time to another individual, which you could do with old fashioned parking meters. Thanks for removing something that makes me feel a tiny bit better about myself....

I've only used it once but the number of hoops I had to jump through to pay for a parking spot was unbelievable. Wouldn't let me choose Google pay. Ok fine but wondering why it is listed. I added credit card, wouldn't let me choose it. A phone call required me to change my non-existent pin. So I jumped through those hoops. I then tried to use a card there but kept getting hung up on by the robo voice. Finally got parking paid for but late for my appointment. Beyond frustrated.
