Everyone’s heard the old saying “pennies from heaven.” The City of Pasadena has its own spin: quarters from the cloud!
Have you ever snagged the perfect street parking and then realized you had no coins for the meter? Or maybe you have a few quarters, but not nearly enough to cover your serious shopping/lunch/shopping agenda?
Pasadena has teamed up with Passport, the parking app in use in more than 450 cities around the world, to make your life easier. Download the free app for your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone, set up an account and payment info, and then start parking in more than 1,400 spaces in Pasadena.
Use your phone to pay when you park and to add time if you're far from your car when the meter is close to running out. Yes, you can even feed the meter while standing in your undies in an Elisa B. dressing room.
Of course, there’s another way to park in Old Pasadena. Elisa B. offers free valet parking with any in-store purchase. Just drop your car at the corner of Raymond and Holly.
