The Town of Dover has announced a change to its parking system.

Starting this month, those looking to pay for parking in Dover’s public lots will have an additional payment option.

Patrons will be able to use their cell phones, tablets, and computers to pay for parking with a new system called Whoosh! The app can be downloaded from the App Store onto an iPhone or the Google Play Store onto an Android device. Users register their license plates and credit card with the Whoosh! system or through whooshstore.com.

Don’t have an iPhone or Android device? Drivers can access Whoosh! by visiting its mobile website, m.whooshstore.com.

To pay for parking, patrons open the app on their phone, choose their parking area, select their vehicle, enter their space number and choose the amount of time they want to park.

When a parking session is about to expire, the application can send a reminder via text message. Users can extend their parking session from anywhere, provided their original transaction was made with Whoosh!. This means that users will no longer have to run out and check when their meter expires, and the fear of receiving a parking ticket almost vanishes.

A convenience fee of 35 cents is added to each parking transaction.

During the week of April 13, drivers will see parking ambassadors in bright pink shirts walking around the lots providing information on the Whoosh! system.
