EasyParkUSA has notified New Hampshire cities participating in its EasyPark program that the company has begun phasing out their on-dash devices. EasyParkUSA has already discontinued the sale of new devices, although existing customers will be able to continue to use their devices in any participating New Hampshire city, and use up any remaining balance on their accounts, until December 31, 2021. At that time, all accounts will be closed and no further service fees will be charged. EasyParkUSA will alert subscribers to the end of the program via their account emails.
Instead of EasyPark, the City’s Parking Division encourages subscribers to sign up for the ParkMobile smartphone app, that gives them more convenience and flexibility than EasyPark does. ParkMobile subscribers do not need any physical devices requiring batteries. With no physical device, no account funds are lost if a unit is lost or stolen. Most important, those who use ParkMobile can manage the payment of parking fees from wherever they are: they do not have to return to their vehicles or the pay kiosk to add money to the meter.
Portsmouth EasyPark users who are residents, and who applied for the resident discount, may also apply for the same discount they had on the parking rate with ParkMobile. More information regarding the EasyPark transition, resident discounts or ParkMobile may be found on the City’s ParkPortsmouth website.
For more information or to apply for the ParkMobile resident discount, visit the Parking Clerk’s Office at Foundry Place Garage, 100 Foundry Place, Portsmouth, NH 03801
