PangoUSA is expanding to Alexandria, Virginia, to grow its user base for its mobile application that lets drivers pay for parking via mobile.
Starting in the beginning of Decemeber 2013, drivers in Alexandria, Virginia will be able to pay for public parking via the Pango app. As part of the launch, PangoUSA will offer new users two free hours of parking, and the company will also waive the convenience fee for all users until March 2014.
“Alexandria is one of the largest cities in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, which encompasses northern Virginia and southern Maryland,” said Neil Edwards, president of PangoUSA, New York. “As Washington, DC is home to the Pentagon and many federal agencies, we expect for our partnership with the city of Alexandria to drive massive adoption from local citizens and also from federal employees who commute and work in DC.”
