Subject: Parking Changes on East 2nd Street – Pango Parking Application
The Bloomsburg Police Department would like to inform the public of new parking regulations on the north side of East 2nd Street from Elm Street to Chestnut Street. Bloomsburg University permits will no longer be valid in this area.
On August 27, 2019 the Bloomsburg Police Department will begin enforcement in this area and require a pay by phone service by Pango. This area will be designated by signs with information on how to pay for parking using a mobile application. The 6 existing meters will remain and parking can be purchased by coin or the mobile app.
Pango allows customers to manage their parking experience on the pay by phone app via their mobile phone or on the Pango website: www.mypango.com. Additionally, the parking app provides various ways to pay for parking such as Pango Wallet supported by PayPal, Venmo and credit card. You will also be able to pay by phone by calling: 1-877-697-2646.
Once you download the app you will see the parking zone “17815” on the map.
Hours of enforcement will be 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday with a 5 hour limit at the space. The fee per hour will be $1.00. There will be no parking every day from 2:00 a.m. – 5:00 a.m. A violation for expired time is a $10.00 fine. A violation for overtime parking is a $25.00 fine.
