ParkMobile launches ‘Summer Safely’ initiative in Delaware
ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the United States, is partnering with the State of Delaware on a new “Summer Safely” initiative to promote COVID-19 safety measures including wearing a mask, social distancing, and contactless parking payments. The mobile payment option protects the safety of both the seasonal visitors and residents by reducing physical interactions with meters at approximately 8,000 parking spaces across Delaware.
ParkMobile claims to have more than 700,000 users in Delaware, with meters in Wilmington, Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach, Bethany Beach, Lewes, and Fenwick Island.. The app can be used to pay for parking in over 400 cities across the United States and is widely available in the Mid-Atlantic region including New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Washington, DC. As part of the initiative, ParkMobile will be sending communications to almost 1 million users in the regional area with COVID-19 safety tips.
“Partnerships with businesses like ParkMobile are vital to put essential information in visitor’s hands,” said Delaware Tourism Director Liz Keller. “As we work to build consumer confidence and share what to expect with travelers when they arrive in Delaware, every touch point from social media to email helps ensure everyone is exploring safely.”
