Download the Mobile Parking App

Park CBUS app icon
The City of Columbus launched the ParkColumbus mobile payment app in early 2019. The app is available on parking meters that display the ParkColumbus sticker and in mobile payment only zones where signage posted*. The ParkColumbus app is available for both iPhone and Android

The new ParkColumbus features are part of the Event Parking Management project that aims to make Downtown Columbus and the Short North Arts District a better place to visit by reducing traveler frustration, congestion and vehicle emissions. The app upgrade brings private and public parking options together in one app to allow drivers to find, reserve and pay for most parking garages and some surface lots in the Downtown Columbus and Short North Arts District. Additionally, drivers can now see the likelihood of finding an on-street parking place.


*Please note, payments made through the mobile application to pay for parking at a meter are not sent to the parking meter. The meter will show "expired" when paid through the application.
