About this app

The PayByPhone app simplifies your journey. 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. As the highest rated parking app in the world, PayByPhone has helped over 72 million motorists pay for their parking simply and easily, so they can focus on what matters most to them.
For businesses signed up to PayByPhone Business, the app allows drivers to simply switch between business and personal payment cards on the PayByPhone app when they park, so no time-consuming monthly expense reports or saving receipts. Paying for parking with PayByPhone is more environmentally-friendly than paying with cash: there are fewer vehicles on the road adding to air pollution to collect cash from pay and display machines.

When you run low (less than a minute), it won't let you add more time. It also suggests nearby parking instead if bringing up the location you have history with. You have to dive through several menus to get your parking history. Really annoying when I use parking for work and have more important things to do than play around with an app to avoid a ticket.

Very good, quick, easy, always works. I'm always recommending it to others. It's just that good and it's entirely free with no extra or hidden charges. It even reminds you how much time you have left and lets you extend the time from wherever you are. The only thing I have experienced that needs improvement is the map option. I live in San Francisco and a lot of the meters are old and the numbers are faded. Other reviewers have mentioned the same.

Cant pay with business credit card, shows on the account, allows to choose ( supposedly), but pay and park button never turns green!!! Suck!!! Issue still persist and not only for me! Credit card shows in payment options, but unable to select it and use for payment! Its been ongoing for a month now and for a company that monopolized the parking system in the city via app, this is really unacceptable! Your instructions to read your faqs are worthlessness. When are you going to fix it ?!?!?!?
