DENVER – Finding a parking spot anywhere in Denver is increasingly becoming an impossible task, but once you claim your proverbial needle in a haystack, there’s the matter of paying, which can be a hassle.

But the City of Denver may have a solution to make parking in the Mile High City less of a drag. The city has partnered with an app called Parkmobile to allow commuters to pay for parking at city-owned lots using their smartphones.

The app will allow people to pay for parking through the app and receive notifications when their time is expiring. The city says the app will decrease the chance of parking fines since agents will be able to verify payment wirelessly.

The free mobile app is available for iPhone and Android phones. A nominal Parkmobile transaction fee is charged for each parking session, in addition to the regularly charged parking fees. The app will recognize a customer’s location, provide parking duration options, and complete the purchase.
