The city of Lawrence announced Thursday that those who park downtown will soon be able to pay with mobile apps.
Passport Parking and ParkMobile, which is the same app the University of Kansas uses for parking, will soon be available to downtown visitors. Both apps will allow users to extend their parking session remotely, and both charge users a “small convenience fee,” according to a news release from the city.
Parking rates are doubling, however, effective Monday, March 29. Two-hour meters will increase to $1 an hour, 10-hour meters to $.20 an hour and parking garages to $2 per day. Enforcement will begin the same day.
Coin-operated parking will still be available, according to the release. Find more information on the city’s website at lawrenceks.org/parking.
