For when you're late to class

We've all done that right? Negated our $900 permit to park closer to avoid being as late as we would've been had we walked from the garage? Just me? Okay then. Anyhow it's easy to use and sends you reminders so that's cool too I guess.

Why the extra fee????

The app works great and is easy to use. But I don’t use it because it charges a 25 cent “convenience fee” every time you park. so I pump quarters into the meters because it “convenience fee” adds up quickly. Quarters and nickels and dimes which I have plenty of and am happy to get rid of, but they have to pay someone to go around and collect them, count them, and deposit them. It doesn’t make any sense! It’s why every other city I’ve been to that uses apps like this don’t do this.

But what do you do when you pull up to a meter and find out it’s not working? You’re supposed to use the app I suppose. Which rewards them for having a BROKEN METER by forcing me to pay the “convenience fee” for the privilege of parking at a VERY INCONVENIENTLY broken meter.

And, of course, the app has no provision for reporting the said broken meter. Come on Tucson! Get with it. It’s as if you really didn’t want people to come downtown.

Caused me more stress

I thought this app would be a lifesaver because I didn’t have any coins for parking meter. The description for the app states that this app takes the stress out of parking. I did not find that to be the case at all. I tried several empty spots in a downtown parking lot (by the museum of art) and kept getting a message that the spot was unavailable. Each spot was very available because I had my car parked in them. Why offer a “convenient’ system if it’s not helpful at all. And apparently I can contact someone for assistance. In Tucson on a Sunday? If you do in fact want to increase business downtown didn’t actually make it easy to do so.
