Councilmember Ann Zadeh and Mayor Betsy Price download the free FW PARK app so they're all set to park at 2,700 on street spaces in Fort Worth.

The FW PARK mobile app provides motorists with a new payment option at all on-street meters in Fort Worth. The service launched in January.

The City of Fort Worth partnered with Parkmobile LLC to launch on-street mobile payment throughout the city, including meters downtown, in the Medical District, the Cultural District and around TCU. The application allows parkers to use their mobile phone devices to pay for parking at 2,700 on-street parking spaces with their smartphones using the free application for iPhone and Android.

Additionally, Parkmobile customers from other cities can pay for parking in Fort Worth using a current Parkmobile account. A toll-free number is also posted on signage for those without a smartphone to make on-street payments.

“Fort Worth continues to invest in experiences that enhance the quality of life for our residents and to attract visitors to the city,” Mayor Betsy Price said. “With the Parkmobile technology, Fort Worth makes paying parking fees easier and more convenient in the heart of the best downtown in America.”

Peter Elliott, parking administrator for the City of Fort Worth, said: “Fort Worth is excited to offer mobile pay technology through our FW PARK app via our partnership with Parkmobile. This adds another payment option for our customers, making the act of parking simpler and faster at all our on-street locations.”

To set up an account, customers may download the mobile app from the Apple or Google Play store and register using their mobile number. Once registered, parkers can immediately begin using the app with their registered mobile device or call the toll-free number to pay for parking.

Enforcement officers will be able to see that a motorist has paid with FW PARK using their wireless handheld devices, so customers should not worry when the meter does not change. Mobile app users may also choose to receive alerts and reminders 15 minutes before a parking session expires.
