Cape Coral's Boat Trailer Parking program was established to reduce an abundance of boat ramp traffic and provide funding for additional security and future ramp improvements to better service area boaters. This program requires boaters to pay a $10 daily fee to park their boat trailers at Cape Coral's five improved boat ramp locations while they are out on the water.
Through a partnership with Passport, the leading provider of mobile payments in parking and transit, drivers are able to pay to park from their smartphone, tablet or computer using a modern “app” technology without having to go to the meter at all. Cape Coral’s five improved boat ramp locations that utilize the Passport payment system include the BMX Boat Ramp, Burnt Store Boat Ramp, Horton Park Boat Ramp, Rosen Park Boat Ramp and Yacht Club Boat Ramp.
The Passport Parking App is free to download from the iPhone App Store and Android Google Play. Boaters can also manage their parking through the Passport mobile web application, which is accessible from any device with an internet connection
