Starting the week of September 9, 2019 Arlington Heights will do a soft roll out of a mobile parking payment app, Passport Parking, which can be used for parking payments of Daily Fee spaces instead of paying cash at the pay boxes located in the Downtown's parking lots or garages.  

Patrons parking in daily fee spaces in Village surface lots or garages that feature Passport Parking signs - or decals placed on the payment boxes - can begin paying parking fees via an app instead of using cash.  If patrons choose, they can still pay by cash as well.

Using the Passport Parking app provides a great convenience for residents, commuters and visitors who use the more than 900 daily fee parking spaces in the downtown. The app is simple to use: download the app, create an account, choose the parking zone you are located in (denoted on the Passport Parking signage) and enter your parking space number to start your parking session.

Depending on weather conditions, it may take a week or longer to post all of the Passport Parking signs throughout the Village’s surface lots and the garages. The app is only to be used for daily fee parking. Users can also manage their parking online through Passport Parking.

Zone numbers of Village surface Lots and garages that will be part of the Passport Payment app program include:
Lot S- 6030
Lot A- 6031
Lot E- 6032
Lot T (Arlington Park Train Station) - 6033
Lot M 2nd Ramp (Municipal Garage) - 6034
Lot M 3rd Ramp (Municipal Garage) - 6035
Lot O- 6036
Lot G (North Garage) - 6037
Lot D (Vail Garage) - 6038

The convenient Passport app is used in Chicago for thousands of on-street parking spaces, as well as in neighboring communities along the Metra NorthWest line. The app is also used in the following area municipalities, including Buffalo Grove, Des Plaines, Palatine, Wheeling, Downers Grove, Glenview, Skokie, Evanston and more.

The Passport Parking app is free to download from the App Store and Google Play
