Parking in Tampa just got a lot easier.
The city started using a new parking system that lets you pay and renew your parking spaces through your mobile phone, computer or calling a toll free number.
The system is called Parkmobile. You can download the app on your mobile phone. The company charges a $.35 fee per transaction for basic users.
About three years ago, the city switched from coined operated parking meters to a credit card-based system that uses numbered spaces and centralized kiosks on each block.
That system reduced the number of parking tickets the city issues and raised its parking revenue by about 25 percent.
