Rehoboth Beach to launch smartphone parking app
REHOBOTH, Del. - April 28, 2012 (WPVI) -- Parking in one of Delaware's top summertime destination is about to become more convenient.
Rehoboth Beach officials say they're allowing drivers to pay for parking with their smartphones starting on Memorial Day weekend.
Carol Everhart, the president and CEO of the Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce, tells the News Journal of Wilmington that drivers will still be able to pay with quarters, but that the smartphone system provides another option.
The service will allow drivers to pay meter fees through a free app they can download on their phones.
The parking fees are now $1.50 an hour. The smartphone service costs an additional 50 cents for each transaction.
