After downloading the free ParkMobile App and registering, customers can immediately begin using the system to quickly pay for parking in Town lots and at metered spaces without having to use a kiosk or meter. The ParkMobile App has a countdown clock that lets users know how much time is left for their parking session, and gives the option to remotely extend time on the paid parking session. The ParkMobile App is now ready to use in Carolina Beach and will make paid parking easier for everyone.

Parkmobile, LLC is a leading provider of parking solutions in North America, helping millions of people easily find and pay for parking on their mobile device. Other North Carolina cities using the app are Asheville, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Durham, Greensboro, and Raleigh.  CLICK HERE  to learn more.
