Washington DC has introduced a program to allow drivers to pay for parking by phone.

The District Department of Transportation of Washington DC launched a pilot program last week, which will allow drivers to pay for parking by phone. The department contracted with Verrus Mobile Technologies, Inc. to run the program which is currently offered at 700 parking spaces in three areas of the city.

Registered users have to call 1-888-510-PARK (7275) and enter the time for which they plan to park their vehicles, after which the amount is automatically charged to their credit cards. Paybyphone.com is the site where drivers have to register for an account, which can also be used to keep a track of their parking expenses. Once their parking time is about to expire, users receive a reminder via text message. They can then call again and add more time to the meter; however, parking time limits still apply.
