Abstract

See full text

Methods and systems that provide parking meter expiration reminders based on location and distance of the driver from the vehicle are provided. The location, parking start time, and purchased parking duration of a vehicle are recorded using a smart device application to scan information printed on the parking meter card. The driver's location is tracked while he is away from the parking lot, and reminders are sent to the driver's smart device, based on the remaining parking duration and locate of the driver, that provide sufficient time for the driver to return to the vehicle from his current location before the parking meter card expires. Additionally, the driver can use a mobile payment option to extend the amount of purchased parking, thereby allowing the driver more time to return to the vehicle before the parking meter card expires.
