SAN ANTONIO (June 5, 2019) – Beginning today, downtown San Antonio visitors can use a new mobile app, SAPark, to pay for parking at on-street and off-street pay stations.
The SAPark app can be used for more than 2,500 on-street and off-street parking spaces in downtown San Antonio. Previously, drivers had to pay at a pay station and then display the ticket on their dashboards. With SAPark, the entire transaction is facilitated on a smartphone and does not require a physical ticket.
To use SAPark, drivers can download the app and create an account with payment information and easily start a parking session. In addition to paying for parking, users can monitor their parking sessions, extend sessions remotely and view parking history and receipts. To view a how-to video, please click here.
“Parking is often the first experience people have when they come downtown, and we recognize our role in ensuring it is a positive experience,” said John Jacks, Center City Development & Operations Director. “SAPark will provide residents and visitors an easy and innovative way to pay for downtown parking. Instead of parking, walking to a pay station and then back to the car to display a ticket, drivers can easily start a parking session on their phones and get to their destinations quicker.”
The SAPark app is powered by Passport, a mobility management company that provides solutions for parking, enforcement, permits, transit and tolling. Passport was selected following the City of San Antonio’s competitive bidding process. Passport also provides mobility solutions for Austin, Corpus Christi, Baylor University, University of Texas at Arlington, and Sam Houston State University.
Users can download the free SAPark app (powered by Passport) from the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store and manage their parking online at sapark.sanantonio.gov.
