Purdue adds Passport parking app

Andrew Hudson   ||   Jun 09, 2017  ||   ,

Purdue University is the latest institution to join the parking app trend on campus, with the introduction of Passport to its West Lafayette campus. The university has launched the PassportParking app, making the services available at at all metered locations on Purdue's West Lafayette campus.

Students and visitors can take advantage of paying from their phones anywhere they see PassportParking signage. Via the app, students and campus visitors alike can pay for or extend their parking sessions directly from their phone, simplifying the process and reducing the need to visit a meter to pay or add time. Parking users just need to download the PassportParking app, create an account, select the desired parking duration, enter parking zone and space number from the decal on the meter and add payment information.

“Smartphone technology brings modern convenience in a variety of ways and parking is no exception. Passport was chosen to provide the app because of its proven track record in major cities and universities and its commitment to an ongoing partnership," says said Holly Buskirk, Parking Manager at Purdue University. "Students will love the ability to simply pay for parking from their phones and even extend their parking session.”

Purdue joins a growing number of universities leveraging the solution, including the University of Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Oregon State University and the University of Florida.

“We’re excited to bring mobile payments to Purdue University and feel confident students and visitors will embrace the technology and find it a lot easier to use than visiting the meter to pay,” says Drew Myers, says Purdue alumnus and Director of Operations at Passport.
