The company also reported that more than $1.9 billion in mobility payments have been processed through Passport's platform to date.
"Our case studies in different cities and towns across the United States speak to the success municipalities have had with Passport's innovative parking solution," says Khristian Gutierrez, Passport's Chief Revenue Officer. "Each new partnership gives us an exciting opportunity to support cities in their efforts to enhance their parking and mobility experience."
Kansas City, Missouri is among Passport's recent string of new clients. The mobile pay for parking app, ParkSmartKC, now services over 1,500 metered parking spaces throughout the city. Other cities with similar systems to Kansas City have reported an 86% increase in mobile parking transactions and a 19% increase in overall revenue after just one year of partnership with Passport.
Another recent addition to the Passport network is Panama City Beach, Florida, which is a city known for its high tourism volume. Other cities that witness a lot of tourism, and are partnered with Passport, have reported three times higher app utilization for parking payments within three months of implementation as compared to its previous provider due to an improved user experience.
Norristown, Pennsylvania, an existing digital enforcement client with Passport, recently expanded its system to include Passport's mobile pay parking solution. Another city that fuels its parking network with both Passport's enforcement and parking solutions witnessed a 270% increase in mobile parking transactions and a 20% decrease in citations (which the city attributes to an increase in parking compliance) after launching the partnership in their city.
"It's been even more rewarding watching our network of customers across the country come together with ideas and best practices as they each navigate the pandemic," says Khristian.
