SMS (Text to Park) Terms of Service
Description of the Program: We provide a convenient service that enables you to text us at 53242 to initiate a paid parking transaction from your smartphone. All you need to do is to text us the parking Location Number. This is typically listed on signage at our parking Location.
1. When you send a text message to us to begin a paid parking transaction, you opt-in to the service, and we will send you an SMS message to begin your transaction and confirm your opt-in. The keyword you use to begin a paid parking transaction will typically be the “Location Code” of our parking lot or garage for which you plan to begin a paid parking transaction e.g. “TX9999”.
2. You can cancel the SMS service at any time. Just text "STOP" to 53242. After you send the SMS message "STOP" to us, we will send you an SMS message to confirm that you have been unsubscribed. After this, you will no longer receive SMS messages from us. This means that you can no longer pay for parking using this text service.
If you want to join again, just sign up as you did the first time and we will start sending SMS messages to you again.
3. If at any time you forget what keywords are supported, just text "HELP" to 53242. After you send the SMS message "HELP" to us, we will respond with instructions on how to use our service as well as how to unsubscribe.
4. Subject to change, we may be able to deliver messages to the following participating mobile phone carriers:
AT&T, Boost Mobile, T-Mobile, Metro PCS, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, U.S. Cellular, Nextel & Virgin Mobile.
5. As always, message and data rates may apply for any messages sent to you from us and to us from you. You will not receive regularly scheduled messages from us - you will receive messages from us only if you text 53242 to initiate a parking transaction. If you have any questions about your text plan or data plan, it is best to contact your wireless provider.
If you have specific questions relating to your transactions, you may reach Customer Care at [email protected] or 1-855-LAZ-4040.
