Pay By Cell

The Winchester Parking Authority, in partnership with Parkmobile, is offering a Pay by Cell option at downtown Winchester's 568 meters (on-street and in lots).

Customers can pay for parking on their mobile devices using Parkmobile’s mobile applications for iPhone, Android and Windows 7. Additionally, customers can use Masterpass, PayPal, Visa Checkout, Chase Pay, Parkmobile Wallet, and coming soon - Apple Pay, to pay for parking.

Using the System

Enforcement officers will be able to see that a motorist has paid with Parkmobile using a wireless handheld device. Mobile app users may also choose to receive alerts and reminders 15 minutes prior to expiration of their parking session. The mobile app will provide one maximum time extension, for example, if a meter is two hours then the customer can re-up through pay by cell for two additional hours at premium rate when utilizing Parkmobile.

How to pay with Parkmobile


Once registered, enter in Zone # located on stickers and signs on the meters or choose from nearby zones shown.


Choose your parking duration (varies by location).


Confirm your information, including location, license plate (up to 5), time and cost. Remember to link your payment to a credit card, Chase Pay, MasterPass, PayPal, or Visa Checkout.


A ticker will show up counting down your time remaining, and in some locations, you may extend your session remotely.
