The new ParkBoston app offers new advanced features to improve the user experience, including a map view to locate nearby spaces, the “Find My Car” feature that navigates a user back to their parked vehicle, mobile alerts when a parking session is about to expire, and new payment options like Apple Pay and Google Pay.

“Together with ParkMobile, we are thrilled to officially launch the new and improved ParkBoston app, making it even easier for our residents and visitors to pay for parking all over the city,” Jascha Franklin-Hodge, Chief of Streets for the City of Boston, said in a press release. “With an enhanced design and innovative new features, the updated ParkBoston app creates a more seamless parking experience for those who choose to drive.”

The ParkBoston app is available for both iPhone and Android devices or can be accessed on a mobile web browser at https://park.boston.gov/. To pay for parking using the new ParkBoston app, users will create an account, enter the zone number posted on the stickers and signs around the parking spot, choose the duration of time they wish to park, and touch the “start parking” button. Users can easily extend the time of their parking session in the app, so they don’t have to run back to feed the meter.
