Chest Rockwell... ,


Attempted to use the reset password feature, got an email with a link to click which went just to the main login, no directions or place to actually reset the password. Did that 3 more times. Same thing. I tried to them use a new email address to create a new account, that didn’t work since it states that my phone number was already linked to an existing account. Finally after fudging the phone number I got a new account setup, only to be met with glitches as I went through the setup process. It has what looks to be a requirement to create a wallet with a $25 minimum to be used for parking In the future. I only rarely park on meters in NYC, I don’t want to put $25 in. Why is this mandatory if I’m using a credit card? Finally I gave up and realized that you can in fact use PARKMOBILE app in NYC. Simple, easy and quick to use and can be used in NJ and many other states. I was in a rush somewhere and this really annoyed me beyond belief to have such issues just to attempt to park your car. This is not a surprise given NYCs administration is a total mess.. about par for the course I suppose

Lot of potential

The app needs a lot of bug fixing. It used to work like a charm especially because parking in Manhattan is ridiculously difficult. It continues to glitch regularly. As of right now, I have to delete and reinstall after every single use. I can't tell if its a way for the city to just be able to push more parking tickets or because of "covid" they aren't able to get to updating the app. Regardless, it is a little embarrassing that the most prestigious city in the world doesn't have a fully functional mobile/app for parking meters.

I've asked traffic officers if they know whats going and they suggest calling and paying via phone.... yes, they said "pay via phone" and just continued to move on. The app doesn't work, the actual meter zones are not always dependable so now we must spend literally 10 minutes to call and pay the muni-meter cia cellphone.

Fixing the app would be beneficial for the general public but I guess who cares about the general public when you can make $65 for every vehicle parked without paying the meter. Thanks DeBlasio, you are the man (sarcastically). But in all seriousness thank you for the Alternate Side Parking reform, looks like maybe you're not all bad.

Thanks for your feedback! In addition to ParkNYC, you can use the ParkMobile app which lets you pay directly using a CC. Along with the NYCDOT, we’re encouraging users to use contactless payment methods.

Have to delete and add the app every time I use it

When this app first came out it was amazing it worked perfectly in all of the boroughs and then something happened where you have to delete it every time you want to put a zone number in. So I have to basically delete the app and then add it just to put the number in for it to take and then I have to do it every single time. I’ve never been able to use the app twice in a row without having to delete it and then add it in order for it to work. Now I find that extremely inconvenient but it’s more convenient than having to pay walk to my car every time I have to pay.

The other thing is when you use this app you can only use it every other interval meaning you can pay with your card until the time runs out and then with your app till the time runs out and then if you need more time you have to pay with your card again. You can’t use the app continuously. So it’s not perfect, it used to be perfect but then something changed. It’s an OK alternative. It does what it supposed to do it’s just a hassle to have to keep putting in all the extra work.
