East Hampton Airport parking is going mobile.
The Wainscott airport has just begun offering the new Passport mobile app — the leading provider of mobile payments for parking and transit — at all airport parking spaces beginning today.
According to a news release issued Monday by the office of East Hampton Airport director James Brundige, the app makes paying for parking easier by allowing users to purchase, monitor and manage their parking from the convenience of their phone. To get started, users can register, enter their space number, select their length of stay and securely purchase their parking using a credit or debit card.
Drivers also have the option to “pre-fund” their East Hampton Airport Wallet with a minimum amount of $30 to a maximum of $100, with the option to add more in $10 increments.
“Our goal in launching Passport is to make the transition to paid parking as seamless as possible,” Brundige said in the release. “We added Passport’s app so that customers had multiple payment options at their disposal. The new app will save time, provide users with flexibility, and allow them to manage their parking remotely.”
Passport signage will provide instructions for downloading and using the app, and once parked, users will have the option to purchase daily parking or extend their parking up to 15 days.
The Passport app is free to download from the iPhone App Store and Android Google Play. Users can also manage their parking online at ppprk.com
