New Bedford’s parking meter app abruptly ceases operations


New Bedford’s parking meter app abruptly ceased operations on May 18 forcing New Bedford to go without a parking application for smartphone users. Currently, the City of New Bedford dis not enforcing metered parking spots.

From MobileNOW!’s website:

“Dear Customer,

Due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on its activities suffered during the last two months, MobileNOW! with regret has had to cease its operations on May 18th, 2020 and has dissolved the same day. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

As you may already have noticed, our mobile application is not accessible anymore. Our website www.mobile-now.us only provides restricted features for a limited period of time moving forward, notably to allow access to your online account historical data.

We are running a process over the coming weeks to validate the funds due to our creditors, including customers, as well as the funds necessary for MobileNOW!’s winding-up and liquidation process. Once completed, we will pay such creditors in accordance with applicable law with any funds remaining and available for distribution, most notably our customers that have a credit balance associated to their wallet.

We will then also place a general notification on our website which will confirm the proportion of credit balances that we will be able to repay out of available funds and the associated timescale in which this will happen as well as the payment method. We expect that those of our customers that have a valid credit card associated with their online account will be recredited automatically such proportion of their credit balance as may be payable to them, without any need for a request. The others will be proposed to be credited of such proportion of their credit balance through another mean of payment in the course of being defined.

We again apologize for any inconvenience caused and will as mentioned keep you informed of our winding-up process through our website.”
