HONK Brings Contactless Parking Payments to Bend, Oregon



BEND, OR, March 20, 2024 – HONK, North America’s leading provider of contactless payments for parking, announced today that it has partnered with Bend, Oregon to implement a new software-based contactless parking solution in Bend’s buzzing Downtown.
