Christmas comes early to Miami-Dade Metrorail riders with new PayByPhone parking service

Busy Metrorail users can avoid the lineup for parking this holiday season

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - November 29, 2016) - With the holiday season just around the corner, riders of the Miami-Dade Metrorail will be happy to hear that they can now avoid long morning lineups when paying for parking on their already busy days. Miami's favorite parking app, PayByPhone, enables commuters to choose when and where to pay for their parking. Passengers are also able to manage their parking directly from the app and get digital receipts emailed to them. The PayByPhone service is available at parking lots across the length of the rapid transit system. Over 1.5 million passengers ride the Metrorail which extends from the Miami International Airport to Miami-Dade's 38 municipalities.

PayByPhone is Florida's most popular parking app. In Miami alone, over 75% of residents and visitors use the app to complete their parking sessions, and in Coral Gables and South Miami over 60% of parking revenue is generated by PayByPhone users. Expanding rapidly across the region, the service is also available in Surfside, Bay Harbor Islands, FIU, Miami Parks as well as many locations in Broward County, including Ft. Lauderdale and Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.

"We're excited to extend our service to the Miami-Dade Metrorail," says Kush Parikh, President and CEO of PayByPhone. "Users in Florida love our app and it just shows that drivers are ready and willing to move into an era of mobile parking."

PayByPhone is the leading mobile parking provider with over 300 implementations covering more than one million parking spaces across seven countries in North America, Europe and Australia. The technology company has become the largest parking payment provider in the world with over 12.5 million users globally. A leader in innovation, the company was invited by Apple to build one of 44 apps to be featured as part of the Apple Watch launch, and recently became the first parking app to launch both Apple Pay and Android Pay. The service is available in major cities around the world such as Miami, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, Paris, London and Geneva. Starting in the new year, PayByPhone will also be available in Las Vegas.

PayByPhone recently released all-new iOS and Android apps, available for download at the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
