HonkMobile Launches Apple Pay for Parking Across Canada

Drivers in Canada can now Pay for Parking with Apple Pay using Honk, the Innovative App Transforming Parking across North America

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - August 02, 2017) - HonkMobile, North America's fastest and most convenient way to find and pay for parking, today brings its customers Apple Pay, which is transforming mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay that's fast and convenient.

Apple Pay is available immediately to all Honk customers on iOS devices, allowing them to seamlessly search, pay for, and top up parking directly from their iPhone or iPad. Customers receive a 15-minute reminder before their parking session expires and the app allows them to buy additional time remotely, preventing costly tickets. Honk's convenient online payment reservation system lets customers reserve a parking spot before they leave the front door, eliminating the frustration caused by circling the block.

Security and privacy is at the core of Apple Pay. When Honk customers use a credit card or debit card with Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers. Instead, a unique Device Account Number is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the Secure Element on a customer's device.

"Launching Apple Pay builds on our mission of providing customers with a seamless and secure payment experience for parking," said Honk Founder & CEO Michael Back. "Integrating Apple Pay with Honk gives new and existing customers more choice to securely pay for parking and we are confident it will meet the needs of drivers across Canada. Initial response has been overwhelmingly positive."

Whether catching a concert at the Air Canada Centre, or heading out for a picnic at English Bay, Honk is making parking hassle-free. The availability of Apple Pay is getting Honk customers driving to their destinations faster.
