How Will Enforcement Officers Know That I've Paid? Will My Payment Show on the Meter?
Parkmobile payments do not integrate with the meters in this area. While your payment will not show on the meter, the officer will use your license plate number and zone number to view your Parkmobile payment on a handheld device. As such, please make sure to add any additional license plate numbers to your account before creating a parking session in order to make sure your parking transactions are correctly created.
Zone Number Information and Range
Zone numbers are a critical part of your transaction and must be recorded correctly in order for your parking session to be identified correctly by the parking enforcement officers. Zone numbers vary by lot. The zone number listing below is provided as a reference only. You MUST identify your Parkmobile zone number from the green Parkmobile signage located in your parking area to ensure you start your session correctly.
In Bloomington, IN the zone numbers range from 7601-76160.
Area Specific Parkmobile Phone Number:
The Parkmobile toll-free phone number to reach the automated system to register and/or start or extend your parking sessions is: 877-727-5007 (877 PARK 007). If you are parking in Bloomington, IN and call any other Parkmobile phone number you will be at risk parking in a zone in the wrong geographical area and the parking officers in your area wouldn't see your parking payment in that case.
Credit Cards Accepted:
The payment methods accepted in your area are: PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and Parkmobile Wallet.
Can transactions in zones in this area be stopped? Extended? Why or why not?
As of 6/15/15, Bloomington has made some changes to the way the Parkmobile system will work. Going forward, the system will work as described below instead.
You can stop a session early if you do not need the entire time available, and you will be charged the appropriate parking fee for the time used, according to the rate structure in your area. If you do not stop your session early it will automatically expire at the time noted when you started the session.
These parking sessions can't be extended. If you need additional time beyond what is available when you start the session, you can create a new session once the initial one ends, or you can stop the initial session early and start a new one to get a new automatic deactivation time (this is the best choice for avoiding any gaps in paid parking coverage.)
