Driving to the beach? Your cell phone can help.
The City of Virginia Beach has unveiled a new smartphone app – Parkmobile – to help drivers pay at on-street parking meters, without coins.
New meters have been installed at the resort. All of them accept coins, credit cards and payments by Parkmobile. Install the app on your phone, enter your credit card number and you’re ready to go. Meter about to expire? Pay for more time from your beach blanket or restaurant table. Parkmobile will send a reminder when your parking session is about to expire. (Just remember: There’s a three-hour limit on metered parking.)
Another free app, ParkMe, displays maps of parking lots and garages at the resort. Find the app at your phone’s app store.
