- Nobody wants to pay to Park..

Of course this is like saying here's the fastest way to pay your taxes. Anyone in Milw who doesn't appreciate this app apparently didn't live back when you had to shake down your seats for quarters to park. Sure there is a minor surcharge but to just type in the location number and your time (which you can extend up to the max 2 hour limit if you stay longer) and have it charge the "$1.88" for 57 minutes is the way to go. Just Set up your cars by license plate in advance and set up payment type in advance. After that it's 10 seconds once you find a spot. Again, not defending parking fees themselves but if you're stuck paying them this at least makes it as painless as possible.

- Now this really is difficult to use

I was attempting to pay for parking in Downtown MKE. The app came up and asked for a zone. Didn’t know what was being asked for and the help button wasn’t helpful. The phone has GPS and showed where I was. Would not accept the space number without the zone. What is the zone? And why can’t it Determine the zone by that information? Attempted to pay at two kiosks and then determined that the entire payment system was down.

- Don’t under “zone”

This is a great option when no cash is available! However, I’ve parked in many places downtown where there are “no zones available”. Maybe they should omit that, and just have the parking meter number to be displayed. Thx.

- Parking app works well, needs a step up

If you know the meter number the parking app works great to accomplish its core functionality. It should be improved to show the meter number in the app by pointing to individual parking spaces on the map. Also, while 38 cents seems de minimis, its a big % increase when the meter rate is 50 cents per hour. The city should license the software and charge only enough to recover the cost.

- App always thinks Apple Pay failed

With the new version the app always thinks payment failed. I’m using Apple Pay. The app reports a failure with payment. So i try to pay again and then I’m told the spot is already taken (which tells me payment went thru), then I’ll check my iOS wallet and see payment did go thru, and I even get a reminder text when my time is almost expired. But the app doesn’t let me review my time because it doesn’t think I paid. Everyone. Three times in last 4 days.

- Great!

Super easy to use, really convenient, and truthfully, it keeps me from over-paying when I don't need to pay and alerts me when my time is almost up, avoiding those pesky tickets! I'd say it's a necessity for being downtown.

- No way to add a favorite spot anymore (03-May-2018)

Earlier I could add a favorite spot from the app. Now no more! I could not find an option in the app (under favorites) to add another favorite spot. Please fix this ASAP!

- Zone?

There aren’t any zone postings on the meters nor on nearby signs. The first time I used the app, I had 3 zones pop up on the app. I chose the first one, paid, and ended up with a ticket. I disputed the ticket with the city showing I paid through the app and they refused to overturn it. The second time I tried to use this, again not knowing the zone, I put the meter space in and the map showed that I was located in a different part of the city. My trust in this app is gone.

- Will not allow recharge, even when under time limit

When you're parking in a 2-hr spot, beware that you can only pay the app once for that spot. I paid 1 hr in a 2 hr spot and tried to recharge. I walked back to my car to find a $22 ticket. After confronting the meter maid, I followed the process of appeal (which involved faxing a broken fax line), but the snail mail took too much time to arrive which then gave me a late fee. I clearly outlined this issue in the appeal process and just now received my rejection notice, 4 months later. Clearly, this app doesn't function as it should. Clearly, this app doesn't communicate clearly its function. Clearly, Milwaukee needs revenue badly. Clearly, I am not pleased about their extortion.

- Please fix payment method

I used to love this app, however for the last two weeks the app doesn’t recognize my payment method and asks me to add one. When I click on the link to add a payment method, the only ones available to add are ones I haven’t used yet. I’m out of options to add as I already used 5 of them and those are not available to use after you add them. PLEASE HELP!!!!! Fix the payment method access.

- Frustrating to use

I just spent 20 minutes setting up a parking session. It "failed" my payment three times, then "failed" again saying I am already in a parking session at that spot. Of course this is consistent with Milwaukee's overall parking management. They make it as hard as possible to follow the rules so they can continue to collect $20 million+ in parking violation revenues every year.

- So easy!

Love it! I try to always keep quarters in my car but this is really helpful when I don't

- Organized crime

The city charges such exorbitant rates that nobody has that much change in their pocket and businesses don’t want to break bills for everyone so the city buys the app. Now when you find and old styled meter you have to pay $.36 in addition to the exorbitant rates. The politicians make a fortune off of the citizens who bought the roads in the first place and the app developer makes millions too.

- Issues with payment option

I think the app is great overall, but recently have been really annoyed by a glitch that prohibits me from adding a payment option. I can’t reach anyone in tech support via email or by phone. First world problems I know, but grrrr...

- Works perfectly!

Saves time and hassle!

- For Bucks

Extremely useful...

- Bad app

The find my car button showed my car parked in the wrong spot when I tried to locate my car. It lead me to the opposite side of city. I finally figure out where I parked so if you lose your location, don’t use the find my car cause it don’t work.

- App is broken

The app no longer lets me pay with my saved credit card information. After opening a support ticket to get help, it was marked as “solved” even though nobody responded to the ticket and nothing was fixed in the app. Amateur support for sure.

- Basically a scam

Meters won't read cards well during the rain, leaving this as your only option, app is a joke trying to trick users into a "master pass" at several times. Then they add a surcharge for you to be inconvenienced by all this nonsense....what crap

- No happy.

This app seems to lose all of credit card info when it updates. It is a hassle to always update info. What’s the point of the app???

- Parking zone

When I typed in the parking # where it is asks for parking zone, it did not show my actual parking location which made me nervous whether what I was doing was accurate or not.

- Install an app and then create an account?

Seriously?! I just want to park as a visitor from out of town who isn’t coming back anytime soon. Excellent way to discourage shoppers and tourists. How about a guest option or just forgo the account creation (skip)? You don’t need it.

- Doesn’t work consistently

It indicated that there was an error in processing my credit card. So I moved my car and parked somewhere else. Then I got charged for the original spot. Not good. This has happened several times.

- New version is awful!

New app doesn’t know the city I’m in. Use location services?? New app buttons and labels are super small and don’t make sense. New app setting time duration is sloppy, takes the wrong setting most of the time. New app doesn’t know that 0424 = 424. Wasted a good few minutes and had to run back across a busy street to figure that out. Old version was quick, easy, and fast.

- Don’t break open your piggy bank....get the app!


- Stupid

Unreal it’s either download the app or pay a $5.00 fee to pay by a phone call. The city of Milwaukee is really trying to make people come & visit. Tom Barrett horrible mayor to approve this nonsense. What about elderly people who don’t have smart phones???

- Parking clock started before 8

Just got here and paid parking starts at 8am- clock online started right away

- Junk app

App doesn’t work. Trying to reset password never sends any email. Cannot get back in any way i try. Just feed the meter by hand. It is much faster than this waste of my time app.

- Blanca Abend Norman

Saves my life every time I’m downtown Milwaukee. Thank you! Thank you...

- It’s a crappy app

It took forever to sign up and it kept saying my email was already taken. It’s probably because this is run by city government and because it is Milwaukee that means inept and corrupt.

- Great

I love the app. Super convenient and so simple.

- Deceptive af

Instead of zone number which makes no sense AT ALL, put SPACE NUMBER so people know what the hell you want and how to use the app so they dont get tickets 30mins after their time expires!!!

- Difficult to use and takes too long to set up

Way too complicated for simple parking

- False prompts

I often get false prompts from this app, whereby I can’t proceed with the operation and have to restart from the beginning.

- Try again

What a terrible app. Not intuitive. Doesn’t recognize saved info. Try again

- Very convenient



SOooooo stupid. Does anybody remember when you could put coins into the machine? It took me 20 minutes to set up the app, create an account, and pay too much too much to park for an hour and a half.

- Rental Cars

Love the app except I’m always using a Rental car and having to add a licensee plate makes no sense if I want to pay for the parking.

- Reviews

I’m tired of putting quarters in the meters with no registered time. Then I have to go to my credit card. This is typical incompetence from our high tax city.

- Handy

The app is very handy.

- Terrible

This app claims I’m at the same random place no matter where I am. Just paid for my zone but the meter still says expired.

- Hard to use

It said it would start clock at 8. It started clock at 7:44. Luckily I put on more time than needed.

- Log in problems

Need to reset the account every time I use it.

- This app is a joke

Am I a joke to u? Crashed several times can’t pay the fee and got tickets. Nice hop developer team.

- Piece of Crap

Tells me that Apple Pay was declined, so I tried it again and got charged twice.

- Garbage. Worst App Ever.

Every time there’s an update I have to re-enter all my info. Payment methods have changed.

- Transaction fee

Was charged a credit card transaction fee for a 0.00 charge

- Disappointed

You can’t add time!

- System Down

Couldn’t use it. Kiosk out too. Probably will get a ticket.

- Trash

This app is garbage. Forgets my payment methods and vehicle details, crashes frequently, not intuitive in the slightest.

- Candy


- Paymant

Would not let me change my default payment method.

- Parking

Working at a job site and not long enough time for parking


This app is extremely unreliable. Please fix. Down currently on iPhone XS as well as iPad Pro.

- Not functioning

If you want to get a ticket use this app

- Mkepark8205$

Good job

- MKE App

Nice app and convenient. Not intuitive!

- Inaccurate

GPS parking location not matching with real spot.

- Serves it's purpose

I've used this app nearly every day for a few months. My only complaint is the $0.38 charge on every transaction as a "convenience". I did receive a ticket after paying once, but so did every other car in the zone which would lead me to believe it was a system issue, not app failure. I called the parking office and they saw my transaction and removed the ticket.

- Horrible

Where’s a shovel? Not good for business

- Stupid to HAVE TO use an app to park...


- It’s ok

The app logs me out frequently.

- Ug-too smart why try?

Mke park super extreme plus frustration!

- Toooo long to download app

Get with it MKE

- App works well, fees are a bit high

I park near work everyday and oftentimes I'll choose to use the metered parking. This app is very convenient especially if it's raining or if there's a line at the pay meter. I'm totally willing to pay for the convenience but 10% fee is way too high in my book. I use the Wallet payment method now and its more reasonable at 6.7%-ish. The app works well and the notifications are great. The map is a nice feature. The most lacking feature however is the ability to select a time when deciding how long to park. In addition to letting us choose length of time, consider letting us choose the time we want to leave and automatically picking the length of time for us as well. I can't see the clock on my phone when choosing so that will help a lot. Apple Pay would also be a good addition. Looking forward to updates.

- A few bugs...

This is a great app for anyone that frequently parks downtown. Granted you get charged 30 cents or something for a convenience fee EVERYTIME but it beats getting a ticket all because you don't have change in your car. Also in the winter months, it's worth not having to stand and try to press the buttons outside while trying to pay. One weird thing with the app is that if you park for 30 minutes and would like to re-up more time in that same spot, it doesn't let you. Therefore I've always did the max time on the meter just to avoid the hassle of having to go feed the meter halfway during what I was doing. Please fix the bugs!!!

- Can't add time

This app works great IF you're only going to park for the max time or less at a meter. If you want to add time when your meter is about to expire, you're out of luck. Even though it prompts you with a notification to "add time", when you try to do it, it says you can't park there anymore, i.e. move your car to a different meter. Which is ridiculous cuz if I was paying with coins I could park there all day as long as plug the meter. This defeats the whole purpose of having an app to remotely fill your meter. What a joke. Needless to say, this flaw caused me to get a ticket when I couldn't leave work to go plug the meter manually. A total scam.

- I love the convenience

I love that they finally got an app for parking! It's so convenient and easy to use. I use it 4 days a week and I've only had one problem with receiving a ticket when I shouldn't have, but they could easily see through the app that I had paid and it was an easy fix. I definitely tell people about this app.

- Works great

Especially helpful when it's freezing outside and I don't want to stand around at the pay machine. Costs extra but I never have coins or cash so it's worth it to me.

- Pointless after meter runs out

For the most part, I LOVE this app. The thing I hate is that after your meter expires (for example, the 2 hours you paid for runs out), the app will not allow you to renew time. When this happens, you have to physically go to a digital parking meter to add on more time. That kind of defeats the purpose of having an app that you can use to pay for the meter

- So convenient!

Has saved me so much time, inconvenience of making sure I have change, and has saved me a lot of parking tickets!!! I tell everyone about this app.

- Perfect!

It's perfect and easy to use. I love that I can pay the meter without change, while walking to my destination, or for other people!

- Use at your own risk

I used this yesterday to park in a city lot, and got a ticket anyway. Now I can either pay the stupid $22 ticket or go contest it (which I am going to do!). Charges a fee on top of the meter rate, and I haven't found a single parking spot where I can reload without having to move the car. The app is a good idea in theory, but the implementation is shoddy at best. Save the trouble and drop a few coins in the stinking meter.

- Gooood app

It's just a solid, pretty good app. I've had no problems with it and plan to continue to use it, when necessary, as needed, till the time I don't.

- B2B Regional Sales

I love this app!! Always works as advertised. Recent updates make it even more user friendly. Top notch. Won't even consider another app.

- Always dependable

Especially since the meters rarely work! Couldn't live without this app.

- Quick, easy & convenient

Well-designed and a pleasure to use.

- That was worth it...NOT

Ticketed the first time I used it. Was told by the violations people they can't get the info from the app until the next day. Hey Milwaukee!! If you are going to advertise the service, make sure you can access the correct information when needed.

- Woo hoo!

Easy to use, stores your info, and beats having to walk back to the meter. Love it!

- Beware!

In a lot of zones within the city, you won't be able to renew your parking after a slotted amount of time. 2 hour parking means "2 hours then find another zone." This convenience was one of the main points in marketing the app to people. Don't let it mislead you into thinking this app is a good idea.

- So easy

Download the app! So worth the extra pennies to use.

- Ease of use

Love the app. Easy to use and very easy to park with.

- Used it for the first time in Brady St

App works very well. PayPal integration didn't work but every thing else works great!

- Crashes phone

Works fine for what it is supposed to do, but it freezes iOS and still sends notifications to lock screen even though it's disabled

- Get Apple Pay

I would rather not share all the info requested with 3rd party provider etc. tokenization would protect my data and info. Please enable Apple Pay.

- Works well

Game changing in snow country!

- Great app!

Very easy and convenient!

- Don't bother

Parking enforcement will still give you a ticket. Nothing like taking time away from work to appeal tickets that shouldn't have issued. Too bad I can't send the a citation for stupidity.

- Great App

I use it in Lake Geneva and Milwaukee. Works great and easy to use.

- Great app

Love how easy it is!

- Disappointing

Milwaukee is trying to get us to use this app. Why am I paying a convince fee when this app eliminates the cost of a physical meter/ someone to collect the coins!?

- 2 bugs

Adding time: gets rid of time you already paid for. 10% markup for the convenience. This is the best MKE could come up with?

- Not worth it

Paid $1.00 to park + $0.38 in fees and got ticketed by parking enforcement anyway. The time away from work to contest the $22 ticket would cost me more than just paying it. Thanks for nothing MKE PARK.

- We want Apple Pay!

Please implement Apple Pay! This would make your app great!

- Does not work, will get ticketed

It was an extra $0.38 to pay, they charged my card and ticketed my car. Don't trust this app.

- The best way to park in Milwaukee!

Love it!

- Awesome!

Love it!

- Fee to pay!?!

There is a fee to pay! 38¢ for $3.

- Works fine once figured out

But figuring out the zone vs space (are they the same?) was complicated. QR code in meter did not work.

- No way to rectify errors

Generally I've liked this app and used it often. Once I got a ticket when legally parked downtown using the app and used the information logged to successfully dispute the ticket. HOWEVER: I recently used it to park near an eastside restaurant. I'm not sure what I did wrong ( wrong space #?) but I selected "maximum time" as I often do in a 2-hour zone. When I later checked, my phone indicated that I'd paid for $31.00 + of parking somewhere in New Jersey. Nowhere on the app could I find a way to cancel the session. And, who knew that MKE park could park me in NJ? Huge flaw!!!!
