HonkMobile Launches Mobile Parking Payment App at University of British Columbia

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - June 06, 2016) - Students, faculty and staff at UBC now have a superior option for parking on campus. The HonkMobile app launched today, enabling users to seamlessly search, pay for and top up parking from their phone or tablet.

HonkMobile, North America's fastest and most convenient way to find and pay for parking, is available at 40 lots on UBC's 49,000-student Vancouver campus. The app simplifies parking by eliminating the need to drive around searching for a parking lot, which saves time and reduces stress and frustration.

"UBC is a world class teaching and research institution that attracts some of the best and brightest. They are tech- and mobile-savvy and connected and their time is very valuable to them. Honk provides a payments solution that is simple, effective and meets their needs for taking something relatively mundane and making it a non-issue," said Brian Jones, Director of Parking Access at UBC. "Put another way, we don't want their day to begin and end by having a sub-optimal parking experience."

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

"Parking is a growing issue at universities across North America, so helping students and teachers park without stress is a big focus for us," says founder & CEO Michael Back. "We look forward to improving parking for every user at UBC."

HonkMobile has launched in municipalities across North America, and at universities across Canada, including Wilfrid Laurier, Western and the University of Windsor. The company 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.
