The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) has enhanced its Pay-By-Cell phone parking program with the addition of QR (Quick Response) code scanning capabilities. A QR code is a two-dimensional bar code that looks like black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background and is readable by QR barcode readers and camera phones.
Under the new system, drivers can pay for a parking session by scanning a QR code with a smart phone. The code contains information that identifies the space number on a parking meter. This eliminates the possibility of typing in the wrong meter number when paying for parking using a cell phone. The QR code can be scanned using the ParkNOW! application, available free from iTunes, Android Market, and soon, Blackberry App World.
Additional information is available at Mobile NOW’s website. For more information about parking in Montgomery County , visit MCDOT’s Division of Parking Services’ website.
