The Port Washington Parking District has launched Pango Mobile Parking, a pay-by-phone parking payment program, in the district’s Lot 4. Lot 4 is located on Maple Street between Port Washington Boulevard and South Maryland Avenue.
Pango Mobile Parking allows residents to park and pay-by-phone quickly and easily using an iPhone, Blackberry or Android phone and customize the Pango mobile parking account to suit individual needs. Before parking time expires, users will receive a text message so they can get back to their car or extend their parking time. There is a 20-cent convenience fee per transaction.
“I am excited about adding another wonderful and convenient tool for drivers in Port Washington
as we continue to embrace the technology of the 21st century,” said North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth.
The Pango program will soon be rolled out for all on- and off-street meters as well. This is a six-month pilot program that will be reevaluated for effectiveness at its conclusion. To download the Pango smartphone app go to www.mypango.com. To learn more call 311 or 516-869-6311.
