This fall, The University of Alabama will be utilizing ParkMobile to provide our customers with a more convenient option to pay for timed parking on campus.  This option is an app for your phone, and you only need to complete a few steps to begin using it:

  • Download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play store
  • Register for the service; (email, password, payment info)
  • Find the parking space with the Parkmobile sign (the app has a parking locator as well) with the zone number.
  • Then enter the zone number to identify the parking area where your vehicle is located and start the session.  You also have the option to opt-in to receive a reminder 15 minutes before the expiration time, and this will allow you to add more time to your parking.

We are pleased to provide this service as it allows us to offer more flexibility and convenience to the overall parking experience.
