Make a call, pay to park in Aspen

Aspen Times Staff Report
Aspen, CO Colorado

ASPEN ” Motorists can now pay by phone to park in downtown Aspen.

The Verrus Pay by Phone service is now available at 900 on-street spaces, the city announced Thursday.

Motorists may also select an option to receive a text-message reminder before their time at a parking spot expires, giving them a chance to pay for up to four more hours in the space. Motorists may also call in to end their parking at any time, meaning they only pay for exactly the number of minutes they wish to park, the city noted.

To use the service, motorists must register their cell phone number, license plate and credit card number with Verrus ” either online at or by calling 1-866-234-PARK (7275). Once an individual is signed up for a free pay-by-phone account, the user simply calls the toll-free number from their cell phone, keys in the location number of the spot (posted on nearby signs) and the amount of parking time desired.

The city will absorb the 35-cent transaction fee, meaning there is no additional cost to motorists to use the system, the city said. A history of a user’s transactions is viewable anytime they log into their account.

Verrus Mobile Technologies, Inc., based in Vancouver, also provides the pay-by-phone service in some 90 other cities, according to the city press release.
