A new mobile parking app is now available for customers to pay for parking in non-gated visitor lots on the Duke University campus.
PayByPhone can be used in 12 parking lots across Duke, including Sarah P. Duke Gardens, the Bryan Center Pay Lot and Nasher Museum of Art. A 13th location – at the Karsh Alumni and Visitors Center – will be added when the center opens. A full list of parking lots in phase one is here.
Campus visitors and Duke employees and students who want to park in hourly or daily parking locations that accept the PayByPhone app can use the app to pay. Individuals can still pay for parking at coin meters or machines in each lot; the app is just another way to pay. The visitor parking rate at Duke is $2 an hour.
“Adding PayByPhone around campus gives our guests a convenient option for payment in lots that sometimes only have just one form of payment,” said Andrew Hinz, senior operations manager for Duke Parking & Transportation Services.
PayByPhone, one of the fastest growing mobile payments companies in the world, can be downloaded for free from the iOS App Store and Google Play Store. Once users download the app, they can begin parking immediately as a guest, or register for a PayByPhone account that securely stores their phone number, email, license plate and credit or debit card information
Each parking lot will be assigned a designated number that users enter on their phones to pay for parking. Users are able to enter length of stay with the ability to extend their parking duration remotely through the app.
