Frequently Asked Questions
Please find our Frequently Asked Questions below:
HOW DO I USE PASSPORT/HOW DO I PAY WITH MY PHONE?
Download the PassportParking app from the App Store or Google Play. A web version is also available at m.ppprk.com. Please note: your wireless carrier’s message and data rates may apply. Once registered, you only need to park, click on the PassportParking app on your Smartphone, as your account information is already stored, enter the zone number of 4780, select how long you wish to park for, confirm and you will be done!
WHAT DEVICES AND BROWSERS SUPPORT PASSPORT THE BEST?
We highly recommend using Apple or Android for downloading the application. When using mobile pay web, modern browsers such as Chrome, FireFox and Safari are the most compatible.
WHY DOESN’T THE METER CHANGE/HOW DOES ENFORCEMENT KNOW I PAID?
The meters don’t sync with our system, but the parking enforcers will see your mobile payment on their handheld device.
WHAT IS THE ZONE NUMBER/HOW DO I FIND IT?
The zone number is required to start your parking session and identifies where you are parked. You can find the zone number located on signage on the lot or on decals on the meter. For your convenience, all of Downtown Macon has the same zone number of 4780.
WHERE IS THE MENU LOCATED?
The menu button is the icon with the three white lines in the left-hand corner of the screen.

HOW DO I KNOW MY PARKING SESSION HAS STARTED?
When using the application, you will know your parking session has successfully started once you see the countdown timer on the screen.
WHY WON’T THE APP LET ME EXTEND MY TIME?
