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, space 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. (In Zone 2050, the officer will use your license plate number and zone number to view your payment.)
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.
