Flowbird Group, a solution provider for curbside management and urban mobility solutions, has launched the ParkNYC app in New York city to allow motorists to conveniently pay for on-street parking and municipal parking lots using a mobile device. 

“NYCDOT is proud to bring an improved parking experience to New York City motorists. Many busy New Yorkers rely on parking across the city, and the new app makes the payment process more convenient and less time-consuming,” said Commissioner Ydanis Rodriguez. 

The new app was implemented by the New York City Department of Transportation and is operated by Flowbird. It features the ability to pay as you go for a parking session and the continued ability to pre-load a ParkNYC wallet.  

This service extends to the tens and thousands of parking locations across five boroughs. The company has said that users are able to check out how much time is remaining, choose to receive a push notification when time is about to expire and extend the maximum time limit without having to return to their vehicle. 

“We are thrilled to expand our long-term partnership with NYCDOT and be part of such a world-class operation to provide better parking solutions for its residents, visitors, and professionals, focusing on user experience and leveraging our global expertise in mobile technology,” said Benoit Reliquet, President, Flowbird America. “After Paris, Stockholm and Hong Kong, we are delighted to contribute to one of the world’s largest and most vibrant urban tech ecosystems in the city that never sleeps. A special thanks go out to all teams involved.” 

New York joins thousands of other towns and cities across the U.S using the Flowbird app. Flowbird continues to provide simple and convenient solutions for parking and mobility
