The City’s Center City Development and Operations Department is pleased to announce the launch of a new downtown parking locator app provided by Pango Mobile Parking. The free parking locator app helps motorists find a parking space using their Smartphone’s location. Garage, parking lot, and meter parking options are identified along with the user’s current location. The app includes price data for all downtown parking locations to help steer drivers towards the most convenient and affordable parking downtown. Users can sign up by visiting www.myPango.com, or downloading the Pango Parking App from Apple’s App Store or Google’s Play store, or calling 1-877-myPango (1-877-697-2646).
