NEW YORK CITY — Drivers can now pay for parking around Brooklyn and Staten Island with their cellphones, the city announced.
The Department of Transportation rolled out the phone-payment system for parking meters, called ParkNYC, to both boroughs on Thursday.
The system first launched in parts of Midtown in December and eventually rolled out to the rest of Manhattan and The Bronx. It has not yet been launched in Queens.
Users of the app, developed by ParkMobile, pre-load funds into a digital wallet in $25 increments to pay for parking, the DOT has said.
Drivers can enter the number printed on the parking spots' meters into the app to pay for parking. If time runs out and they haven't reached the maximum time for the space, they can add money to the meter remotely.
