White Plains Announces Expansion of ParkWhitePlains, City's Mobile Parking App

The City sought to expand the availability of the service and has just completed a testing period for implementation of ParkWhitePlains to the on-street meter spaces. Expansion to the entire on-street meter system is now underway. ParkWhitePlains stickers are now being affixed to the on-street meters in the downtown area. Those stickers mean that the meter is part of the ParkWhitePlains system, thus allowing customers to utilize the app to pay for parking. The stickers have been affixed to on-street, single-space meter spaces on the following streets: Waller Avenue, Lyon Place, Gedney Way, Pleasant Avenue, Haarlem Avenue, Glenn Street, Bond Street, Fisher Lane, Holland Avenue, Mamaroneck Avenue (between Main and Maple), Post Road (between Broadway and MLK), and Main Street. The Parking Department will also begin to fill in the various "core" streets between Main and Maple before expanding to other areas.

And there’s more good news: The City is now testing the implementation of an automated parking discount system using bluetooth beacons for parking patrons who utilize the ParkWhitePlains App to pay for their parking. Here’s how the beacon system works: The customer starts his/her parking session as usual using ParkWhitePlains. The customer enters a business with the beacon. The App "sees" the bluetooth beacon in the restaurant and begins a 20 minute countdown which it displays on the customer’s phone. If the customer is still in the restaurant at the end of 20 minutes, he/she will automatically get a parking discount courtesy of the business. Hudson Grille on Mamaroneck Avenue has agreed to be the City’s testing location. The Parking Department hopes to have the beacon system fully tested and ready to offer to businesses within the next month
