ParkMobile Expands Presence in Canada Through a New Partnership with EasyPark Vancouver
July 22, 2020
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 22, 2020 — ParkMobile, the leading provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the North America, announced today a new partnership with EasyPark Vancouver to provide contactless parking payments in over 100 off-street lots throughout the city. Amid the COVID-19 crisis, many city leaders and businesses are encouraging residents to use the app instead of pay stations to prevent the spread of the virus.
ParkMobile is the #1 parking app in the North America and is available for both iPhone and Android devices. New stickers and signage will be posted around the EasyPark locations in Vancouver to provide information to drivers on how to pay for parking. To use the ParkMobile app, a user finds the parking location by using the ParkMobile Map or enters the zone number posted on stickers and signs, selects the amount of time needed and touches the “Start Parking” button to begin the session.
ParkMobile has a large base of users in Canada with availability in Toronto, Ottawa, Halifax, Victoria, and Winnipeg. Additionally, ParkMobile has a strong presence in the Pacific Northwest with locations in Seattle, Portland, Bellevue, Eugene, Bend, and more.
“EasyPark Vancouver is excited to partner with ParkMobile to provide our lots with an additional contactless parking payment option,” says James Slessor, COO. “We know a lot of people in Vancouver already have the ParkMobile app on their phone, which will make paying for parking easier at over 100 EasyPark locations in the city.”
“ParkMobile is proud to partner with EasyPark Vancouver to expand contactless parking payments at over 16,000 spaces in the city,” says Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile. “We continue to see strong growth of our user base in Canada, as we provide more drivers with an easy and safe way to pay for parking without having to touch the pay station.”
