EasyParkUSA has informed Portsmouth, Dover, Durham and other New Hampshire communities that it is phasing out its in-dash devices, which allow drivers to pay for parking from inside their vehicles. Portsmouth and Dover have announced the upcoming change.
The company has stopped selling new devices. Existing customers can use their account balance for parking until December 31st. At that time, all accounts will be closed and no further service fees will be charged. EasyParkUSA will alert subscribers of the end of the program through their account emails.
What drivers can do next in Portsmouth
Portsmouth Parking Division now encourages subscribers to sign up for the ParkMobile smartphone app to pay for parking. ParkMobile subscribers do not need any physical device that requires batteries. Without a physical device, no account funds are lost if a unit is lost or stolen, according to the Portsmouth announcement. More importantly, Portsmouth officials said, drivers don’t have to return to their vehicles or a payment kiosk to add money to extend their parking time.
