The City of Savannah today introduced ParkSavannah, the latest way to pay for on-street metered parking.
"The new ParkSavannah app makes parking easy by allowing users to purchase parking with a debit or credit card from their smartphone," said Saja Aures of the City of Savannah Public Information Office.
The new ParkSavannah app is free to download from the App Store and Google Play and at www.savannahga.gov/parksavannah.
The app is available to use to pay for parking sessions at the City’s multi-space meters and drivers will soon be able to pay at parking meters city-wide as the City replaces outdated single head meters.
Implementation of the app is one of the recommendations of the Parking Matters study recently adopted by City Council, which also called for doubling meter rates and extending paid parking times to 8 p.m. six days a week.
Once registered with ParkSavannah, users will enter their parking space number and then enter their payment details. Each meter will have a ParkSavannah sticker with directions to use the app.
With the app, users can:
● Pay for parking
● Monitor their parking session
● Extend time remotely (up to the maximum allotted time)
● View payment history
● Receive email receipts
