First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
Parkmobile USA has implemented a new mobile parking payment service in Oakland, California, that enables customers to pay for parking with their cell phone using the company's native mobile applications for iPhone, Android, Windows 7, and Blackberry smartphones anywhere in the city, but they can also choose to pay with NFC-enabled mobile phones by waving or tapping their phone on any of Parkmobile's NFC-enabled stickers.
"Motorist can now pay for parking at a meter by utilizing their cell phone and seamlessly buying time to park at a metered space; no more digging for coins, no more frustrations and no more stress” said Noel Pinto, Oakland’s director of parking. “Parking in Oakland is no longer an adventure but rather as easy as parking at a meter, making a phone call and walking away.”
