Pay for Parking in Bethesda with Your Cell Phone

Pay by cell phone

Original Source: Pay for Bethesda Parking with Your Cell Phone

Cell phones can now be used to pay for parking at 5,250 County parking meters in Bethesda. By summer, the program will be expanded to include meters in Silver Spring, Wheaton, Montgomery Hills and North Bethesda – for a total of 11,000 parking meters.

To use pay-by-cell, first-time users can register for the program by calling 301-830-7074 or going online anytime to (I just signed up- it's really easy). Parkers set up an account and indicate which credit card will be used for the parking charges. The step-by-step instructions, printed on each meter, direct parkers to:

• Use a cell phone to call 301-830-7074.

• Or, send a text message to 32075.

• Follow the phone/text prompts to enter the meter location number (located on the meter decal).

• Select the amount of time desired for parking.

The parker/user then receives voice and text messages confirming the start of the parking session. A 35-cent transaction fee will be charged in addition to the parking fee.

The new parking system provides many conveniences to parkers. Those who use pay-by-cell will get a text message reminder that their parking time is about to expire (good). Parkers can extend parking time remotely (love it) and view transactions online. Parkers can stop a parking session upon returning to a vehicle, so they only pay for the parking time they have used (best!).

Happy parking, all...
