Pay for parking from your phone with the new Parkmobile app, which is now available in more pay station areas throughout the campus.
All you have to do is download the app here and register for an account using a credit card and your license plate number. After you park, use the app and key in your parking zone number, located near the pay station. Select the amount of time you'd like to park, and you're good to go.
Parkmobile will send you a text message 15 minutes prior to the expiration of your paid parking. You'll have the option to add more time through the app.

On Thursday, November 5, city officials implemented a new parking program that will directly affect all Westwood visitors and residents.
Aimed at improving parking availability and reducing congestion, LA Express Park is an advanced parking management system that uses in-ground sensors to keep track of open parking spaces and to determine pricing based on real-time demand.
Now, instead of circling the streets to find parking—which causes stress for you and traffic for others—drivers will know where parking is available and how much it costs. The demand-based pricing system will raise parking fees to $2 per hour during high-demand hours and 50 cents during off-peak hours.
LA Express Park will also start to enforce the limit of two-hour parking on all vehicles that choose to park in the Westwood area.
Additionally, a new generation of smart meters has been installed, which allows motorists to not only use coins, credit and debits cards, but also their smartphones to pay for parking. These smart meters will not accept payment for any time beyond the posted time limit, which will help with turnover for parking.
You can pay by phone by registering online or via mobile app here. Scroll down for a cool video about LA Express Park.
Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) announced the launch of LA Mobile, a mobile application that allows LADOT DASH and Commuter Express transit riders to pay their fares with a smartphone. The new mobile app is the first of its kind for a transit agency in California.
LA Mobile allows riders to set-up an account with a credit card and pay for fares on a per-ride or monthly basis, with a minimum purchase of 20 trips.
Occasional DASH and Commuter Express UCLA riders can now purchase their 20 rides on their phones at their convenience instead of making the trek to the Central Ticket Office to purchase a 20-trip booklet.
LA Mobile will help pave the way for additional transit agencies to integrate a pay-by-phone application into their systems.
