Paying to park in downtown Hannover has gone high-tech.
The Borough of York County has updated its parking operations with the implementation of Passport Parking software. The software implementation upgrades a number of aspects of the Borough’s parking operations under one system and provides improved convenience for those wishing to park downtown.

Drivers can download the Passport Parking app and use it to pay for and manage parking sessions with their smartphone. Users can create an account with their email addresses or phone number and start a session by entering an area number shown on nearby signs or meter sticker.
After choosing the duration of their parking session, the user can pay for more time remotely on the application without having to run to supply a meter. Additionally, users can view parking history or download receipts from their phone or online at www.PassportParking.com.
The borough worked with Main Street Hanover on how best to use the parking lot and allow visitors to focus on shopping and touring downtown without worrying about running a meter.
The Passport Parking system includes all parking areas managed by the borough. Individuals will still be able to purchase a limited number of parking permits in the lots associated with this program.
Further information is available during regular business hours at the Hanover Borough Office located at 44 Frederick St. or by phone at 717-637-3877 or online at www.HanoverBoroughPA.gov.
