MILWAUKEE — The City of Milwaukee has updated the MKE Park app so residents have a contactless payment method.

Metered parking and time restrictions are scheduled to start back up on Monday. To slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep residents healthy, the city of Milwaukee has updated the MKE Park app.

Now, anyone parking in the city can click onto the app and pay via their cellphone.

"The City of Milwaukee is pleased to partner with ParkMobile to provide our residents and visitors with an upgraded mobile parking app experience,” said Mayor Tom Barrett. “The MKE Park app lets people quickly and easily pay for parking without touching a meter, which is safer for everyone.”

The app is free for download on both iPhone and Android devices. To pay for parking using the app, simply enter the zone number listed on the meter, select the amount of time needed, and hit "start parking" to begin the session.

You can also use the app to extend your time without needing to go back to the meter.
