HonkMobile Expands to Oshawa, Continues to Transform Parking Industry

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - September 23, 2015) - HonkMobile, Canada's foremost mobile parking payment app, has entered into an agreement with the City of Oshawa that will transform the way motorists pay for parking. Available for all on-street parking spaces and off-street surface lots in the city's downtown, the app enables motorists to pay for parking using their smartphone in addition to traditional payment methods.

"This is a huge step forward for HonkMobile as we continue to expand our presence in markets across Canada and North America," says founder & CEO Michael Back. "We have a great partner in the City of Oshawa and we're excited to bring the convenience of HonkMobile to this vibrant city."

The HonkMobile app is easy to use and allows customers to pay for parking from their smartphones before departure, during their trip or upon arrival at their destination, adding significant time-saving and convenience to the parking process. Motorists receive alerts 15 minutes prior to expiration of their parking session, giving them the opportunity to pay for additional meter time remotely.

Using HonkMobile is simple: drivers register license plates along with credit card information and have access to HonkMobile's 400 parking zones -- over 12,000 individual spaces across Toronto, Canada and beyond -- all in the palm of their hand.

"HonkMobile is working to 'do parking better,'" says Back. "We are disrupting the status quo to give drivers a superior option for parking."

In Oshawa the interactive technology allows the city's enforcement officers to use a wireless handheld device to see when a motorist has paid using the app.

Using a single HonkMobile account, users can pay for parking in Oshawa and anywhere HonkMobile is accepted across North America.
