No quarters? No problem! Beginning tomorrow, you can now use your mobile device to pay for parking in the Arena District.

The ParkColumbus app, which is already available for use in the Short North, allows drivers to use their iPhone or Android devices to pay for both meter and kiosk parking in the Arena District.

Read more about kiosk parking in Arena District here.

To pay for parking using the app, simply enter the zone number posted on the parking meter or kiosk sticker, choose the duration, and touch the “start parking” button. The app sends alerts when the parking session is about to expire so a user can extend time right from the app.

In addition to the Arena District, the City of Columbus plans to continue to phase in mobile payment with the app in 2019-2020 to all 4,500 parking meters and kiosks in areas including Downtown, the Brewery District, Grandview Avenue (within the City of Columbus) and the University District.

For more information on the ParkColumbus app and to watch a video on how to use it, visit columbus.gov.
