CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

No quarters for the meter? No problem. Motorists may now use cellphones to pay for parking at more than 4,000 Cincinnati on-street parking meters.

Area meters will now accept payment via smartphone mobile application.  The app, PassportParking Mobile Pay, allows motorists to pay for an on-street parking meter without using coins or swiping their credit card.

Parkers can use the app to make their initial payment to the meter, extend their parking session (until the maximum allowed), view all mobile parking transactions and receive a reminder 10 minutes before their parking session expires.

According to a release, when purchasing time at a meter using the PassportParking app, the parking meter will not display the time purchased or remaining. Customers can view their time remaining directly on their phones. In the event a motorist parks at a meter that has time left over from a previous occupant, motorists should utilize the pay-by-phone application when the leftover time expires.

Parking enforcement agents will utilize wireless handheld devices to see whether or not a space or plate is paid.

You can download the PassportParking app from the iPhone App Store or Android Google Play.
