HonkMobile Brings Mobile Parking Payment to Wasaga Beach

WASAGA BEACH, ON--(Marketwired - May 16, 2016) - HonkMobile, North America's fastest and most convenient way to find and pay for parking, launched today in the Town of Wasaga Beach for its beach season, which runs from May 24th to October 15th.

The HonkMobile app enables Wasaga's over two million yearly visitors to seamlessly search, pay for and top up parking from their phone or tablet, eliminating the need to drive around searching for a parking spot, which reduces traffic congestion, pollution, stress and frustration.

Available at 1,650 spaces across 11 lots and eight blocks of street parking, HonkMobile will be a game-changer for the Town where transportation and congestion have been highlighted as critical areas for improvement.

"The HonkMobile parking app provides a convenient, user-friendly parking alternative for visitors to our beautiful beach community; as well as residents who enjoy 14 kilometers of freshwater beach in their backyards," said Brian Smith, Mayor of the Town of Wasaga Beach. "Additionally, the app will assist drivers to find parking spaces quickly, while also reducing driver stress that often accompanies searching for parking spaces."

The easy-to-use, free app lets drivers bypass parking meters. Users receive alerts 15 minutes prior to the expiration of their parking session, giving them the opportunity to pay for additional time remotely and preventing them from getting a ticket. The app also stores and manages parking receipts.

"We love to focus on helping municipalities like the Town of Wasaga Beach," says founder & CEO Michael Back. "As cities become more popular and the demand for parking increases, the supply of spots begins to lag. Honk bridges the gap by helping to better allocate existing parking resources."

HonkMobile is on a mission to maximize the ease of parking for all drivers, while also benefitting cities by reducing congestion, pollution, driver frustration and wear on roads.

Using a single account, motorists can pay for parking anywhere HonkMobile is accepted across North America.
