Conversion to Parkmobile Parking Meter System

Between July 25 and September 1, 2016, Transportation Services converted coin-operated parking meters on campus to "mobile meter" stalls that use the Parkmobile mobile payment system. Visitors can use this system to easily pay for parking by phone (call in), on the web, or by using a mobile application. Converted parking meter locations no longer accept coins.

Hourly rates, time limits, and hours of control for metered parking spaces remain the same. For more information about how to set up and use a Parkmobile account and for campus policies on visitor parking, visit http://transportation.wisc.edu/parking/Visitor_hourly.aspx. If you have questions, please contact Transportation Services at customerservice@fpm.wisc.edu or call 608-263-6667.
