Park by Phone

I had the pleasure/horror of serving as the lead negotiator for the neighborhood in the NW Portland Parking Plan in the early part of the last decade (and I wish more success to the folks who are trying again a decade later).

But one thing I got out of that process was an understanding of what was in the pipeline for parking technology. And one of the predicted developments has arrived, paying for your parking with a cell phone. Although, I’ll confess that what I expected to see was a number that you would call, followed by punching in a code. My crystal ball was not sufficient to see ‘apps’ in our future…
