Myrtle Beach residents and visitors will be the first in the state to no longer have to dig down deep to find change for parking. It’s happened to most of us after we parked at a meter. “You got to your destination and didn’t have the correct change, or you have to walk to a pay station, or go to a local restaurant and get change and come back and feed the meter, or you’re at the beach and your time is up and you have to go back,” says Parkmobile USA spokesperson Sara Engel.
The meters on the side of the road may be not be as busy, but the phone lines will be. Engel says a new phone parking service is at every Lanier Parking Solutions location throughout Myrtle Beach. You can pay for parking with one phone call. “On the parking meters in Myrtle Beach you’ll find a Parkmobile green sticker on each parking meter, and located on the stickers are instructions to register. You can download our mobile app, or you can call our toll-free 1-800 number,” says Engel.
The meters still accept change. Phone parking is just an easier way for residents and visitors to pay for parking.
