The city of Las Vegas is offering two new parking amenities as downtown Las Vegas safely reopens for business. Beginning July 24, visitors to downtown will be able to have a touchless parking experience.

A new mobile payment app and a QR code posted on meters and at parking lots will allow visitors the option of not having to touch to pay for parking.

The new mobile payment app being used is Flowbird. It allows for payment at any parking meter or to make a reservation for any of the city’s parking garages.


For those who don’t wish to download an app, every meter and parking garage is equipped with a QR code and an NFC tag which allows anyone to pay for parking with GooglePay or ApplePay. Just scan the QR code posted on the parking meter or tap the phone to open the mobile website. Select the amount of time to park and double click to pay.

In addition, the city is installing 100 touchscreen meter upgrades in the busier areas of town. These touchscreen meters are easy to use and the screen is large and readily visible in all light levels.
