LETHBRIDGE, AB--(Marketwired - September 12, 2016) - Students, faculty and staff at the University of Lethbridge now have a superior option for parking on campus, one that enables users to search, pay for and extend parking from their phone or tablet.
Honk, North America's fastest and most convenient way to find and pay for parking, is now available at five lots on U of L's Lethbridge campus. The app simplifies the parking process by eliminating the need for drivers to search for parking lots and spaces, affords users the ability to pay for parking from their mobile device and reduces the occurrence of tickets by sending reminders before parking expires.
Parking Services has partnered with Honk to allow drivers at the U of L the convenience of managing parking from the palm of their hand.
"Honk's unique functionality enables users to first find and then pay for parking on their way to or at school," says Al Hill, parking coordinator at U of L. "Once they arrive on campus, drivers can simply hop out of the car and go. The 15-minute reminder before parking expires, coupled with the ability to top-up parking in the app, is a huge benefit and saves drivers time and virtually eliminates parking violations."
Honk has launched in municipalities across North America, and at universities across Canada, including UBC, 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.
"The last thing students and staff should be worrying about is parking," says Honk founder & CEO Michael Back. "We strive to making parking a smooth and positive experience for our users and we're excited to bring the Honk app to the University of Lethbridge."
Using a single account, motorists can pay for parking anywhere Honk is accepted across North America.
