PayByPhone21For years, many of us have parked by ear. That’s not such good idea! Now, thanks to the City of Seattle, we can park by phone, a much better idea. Better yet, forget the PHONE part and use Pay by Phone to Park by App on your Smartphone!

Here’s information from the City of Seattle on how Pay by Phone can be put to work for you:

  • Call 1-888-515-7275, or go to or download the free app. Sign up and follow directions to register your cars with a credit card.
  • Parking, then look for the Location Number on a nearby pay by phone parking sign or at the closest pay station on your side of the street.
  • Enter the Location Number, see your App to choose vehicle license plate number, desired length of stay, and make your payment.

PaybyPhone works in many Seattle private lots and garages and in 180 cities in North America and Europe. PayByPhone adds a $0.35 fee per transaction.
