Starting Wednesday, January 20, the City will be updating the Pango zone numbers on each block (Pango is the pay by phone vendor used in the City of Alexandria to pay for parking meters through a phone). New zone numbers will still be five digits, but will now begin with “11” instead of “22”. This change is being made to reduce confusion and overlap with Park Mobile zones that are valid in Washington, DC and Arlington.
Existing Pango users should now see the updated zones in the app available for smartphones. If not, ensure the app is running the most current update. Please contact Pango customer service at 1.877.myPango if you continue to have problems with displaying the current list of zones.
For those interested in paying for parking meters through a phone, the app can be downloaded for Android and IPhone devices. Please visit alexandriava.gov/paybyphone or www.mypango.com for more details.
