In case you didn’t know, there is a bit of an unofficial tradition that happens in Boston (and many other American cities) every winter. With each heavy snow fall residents shovel parking spots outside their homes in order to keep a spot clear for themselves.

Well, this year, Mayor Marty Walsh of Boston says no to space savers. He has implemented a ban on placing items on cleared spots preventing the shovellers from saving them. Bostonians have come up with some pretty interesting revenge tactics for people who take spots that aren’t theirs!

The Mayor asks that instead, residents respect each other’s spots and to be patient while the city works to get the snow cleared as quickly as possible.

Here at LocoMobi, we know that parking can cause a lot of stress no matter what time of year; whether it’s finding a space or finding enough change to pay at the meter.

QuickPay is LocoMobi’s mobile parking payment app! By using the app parkers can pay by for parking straight from their mobile device. Payment can be made at the parkers’ convenience, from their office or the warmth of the car.  Even extend parking time straight from your phone so no more having to run back to feed the meter!

We know there are lots of stresses involved in parking- especially space saving, QuickPay is a start to helping make the parking a hassle free experience.
