Village Now Offering Mobile Payment Parking Option for Daily Fee Users

As of Thursday, Oct. 1, 2015, commuters utilizing daily fee parking will have the ability to pay for parking using the new PassportParking mobile application.

To utilize the new service, customers must first download the PassportParking app from the Apple Store for iPhones and iPads or Google Play for Android users and other tablets. Once downloaded, users will register an account. Participants can also register for the service online or by calling (847) 380-4332.

View the flyer to get started.

Once registered for the service, users can submit a payment in three steps:

  • Enter Vehicle Zone Number (60193) 
  • Enter your space number that indicates which stall you are parked in.
  • Confirm the time needed for your session.

Please note that payment for a stall does not reserve the space in advance. Users should park first and then pay for the time needed for that particular stall. Payment is required once a person has parked his or her vehicle in a daily fee parking space.

The mobile app allows drivers to extend their parking session to the maximum time allowed, add or update payment card details, as well as manage notification and receipt options. The same functions are also available on the mobile website. Additionally, the mobile application and website allows users to select from multiple language options for non-English speakers.

For users without smart phones, customers are invited to Pay-by-Voice by calling (847) 380-4332, providing the zone and space number and payment information.

Users of the new PassportParking application will be charged a $.40 service fee for each initial transaction used to purchase a parking space or to extend time using a space if it wasn’t included in the original transaction. Once the maximum time has been reached, customers must leave their parking spot or they are subject to being ticketed.

NOTE:  Parking at the Schaumburg Station south of the train tracks and accessed from Rodenburg Road and Ryan Way in Roselle is NOT maintained by the Village of Schaumburg. 

Questions regarding those parking spaces can be answered by calling CPS Plus Corp. 877.717.0004 for daily fee and 773.714.9262 for monthly parking.  Central Parking Service has merged with Standard Parking to be renamed SP Plus Corporation.
