HonkMobile Expands to Whitby, Continues to Transform Parking Industry

WHITBY, ON--(Marketwired - November 19, 2015) - HonkMobile, North America's fastest and most convenient way to find and pay for parking, has entered into an agreement with the Town of Whitby that will transform the way drivers in the town find and pay for parking.

HonkMobile's cloud-based technology streamlines parking by allowing users to search, pay for, and top up parking from their mobile phone, tablet or any Internet connected device. The app also allows users to store and manage receipts.

Today, Whitby's mayor, Don Mitchell, joined HonkMobile founder & CEO, Michael Back, at Whitby's firehall to officially launch approximately 700 spaces across the town's on-street metered parking and off-street municipal parking lots.

"HonkMobile is very excited to partner with the Town of Whitby. Honk makes paying for parking fast and simple, enhancing the customer parking experience and making life easier for residents," says Back. "We know Whitby's residents will love the ease and convenience of the app."

Mayor Mitchell stated his excitement about the app's potential to simplify parking for Whitby's residents and boost business by opening up more parking spaces. "HonkMobile's innovative mobile technology provides a convenient way to pay for parking in Whitby's burgeoning downtown," he says. "We embrace the creativity that results in technology like HonkMobile's. It's good for residents and it's good for business because it allows us to use our parking spaces much more efficiently."

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 timesaving and convenience to the parking process. Users receive alerts 15 minutes prior to expiration of their parking session, providing them with the opportunity to pay for additional meter time remotely.

The interactive technology allows Whitby's Municipal Law 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 Whitby and anywhere HonkMobile is accepted across North America.
