PayByPhone Announces New Partnership with TransLink Park and Ride Lots Across Metro Vancouver

 

PayByPhone has partnered with TransLink to offer its mobile parking payment app at 5,500 parking spaces across all nine TransLink Park and Ride lots.

 

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA  — Vancouver, British Columbia, September 8, 2022 – Commuters in the Metro Vancouver area using the designated lots along the TransLink line servicing buses, the SkyTrain, and the West Coast Express can now pay for their parked vehicles with the universally acclaimed PayByPhone app.

PayByPhone makes the transition to cashless parking payment easy. The app is simple to use, and parking payment transactions can be completed in three quick steps using the following methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Apple Pay, or Google Pay.

 

Further, drivers can opt to have text messages sent to their mobile phone reminding them of parking expiration. Drivers who prefer not to register for an account can begin a parking session by calling in to pay over the phone or pay with a Guest Account via PayByPhone’s app or website.

 

“We’re thrilled to be partnering exclusively with TransLink to offer our services here in Vancouver, BC, the home of PayByPhone,” says Carmen Donnell, PayByPhone’s Managing Director, North America. “As more people seek out public transit to commute, the convenience of leaving their vehicles parked in designated Park and Ride lots, with the ability to pay for parking time remotely, encourages transit commuting. PayByPhone has proven its popularity in Vancouver and internationally as a versatile and reputable mobile payment app, designed to simplify the parking journey by removing pain-points typically associated with finding and paying for parking,” concludes Donnell.

“We’re always looking for innovative ways to improve the customer experience and make using transit easier,” says TransLink CEO Kevin Quinn. “We’re pleased to be able to partner with Vancouver-based PayByPhone to provide our customers with more convenient and accessible payment options at our Park and Ride locations.”

Dallas-based parking software, payments provider achieves 144 percent growth over last three years

 

September 1, 2022 DALLAS, TX – ParkHub, a leading provider of parking software and payments solutions, has been named to Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000, an annual listing of America’s most successful companies.

Founded in 2010, ParkHub provides a fully integrated software and payment processing solution to optimize parking operations, facilitate payments, and deliver real-time business insights to customers in multiple vertical markets, including sports, music & entertainment, higher education, parks & recreation, and other destinations. Through reliable technology, advanced reporting and analytics, and integrations with numerous parking and ticketing solutions, ParkHub helps clients increase revenue, improve operational efficiency, and deliver exceptional guest experiences.

Companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2018 to 2021. To qualify for the list, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2018. In addition, companies must be U.S.-based, privately held, for- profit, and independent–not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies–as of December 31, 2021, to qualify for consideration.

ParkHub clocks in at number 3,588 on the 2022 Inc. 5000. The company has achieved 144 percent growth over the most recent three-year interval. That figure reflects an increase from 2021’s 117 percent growth, while in 2020, the three-year growth average was a whopping 369 percent.

The company’s steady success has come through a combination of strong organic growth coupled with key acquisitions to round out ParkHub’s capabilities in software, payments integration, business intelligence, and offerings aimed at new industry sectors. In 2021, ParkHub acquired Bonfire, a provider of campground management software. Last week, the company added payments integrator Fuzse, another Dallas firm known for its expertise at the intersection of payments and software development.

“For many businesses, finding growth is hard, and maintaining it can be much harder,” said George Baker, Founder & CEO of ParkHub. “Inc 5000 recognition for three years running is recognition of our market leadership, the market opportunity, and most of all, keeping close to our clients to meet and anticipate their needs with innovation. I am proud of our team and our continued growth with our recent investment from LLR Partners.”

The City of Naples, Florida, Launches Pilot Program to Pay for Beach Parking with PayByPhone Partnership

 

 

Visitors to the City of Naples, Florida will now have a better parking experience at two of the City’s beach accesses, Lowdermilk Park and 5th Avenue South.

 

 

 

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – PayByPhone, a leading global provider of mobile parking payment solutions, is expanding into the City of Naples to launch a safe and convenient parking payment experience.  Through the partnership, visitors will be able to pay for on-demand parking at over 230 parking spaces at two beach locations in the City of Naples.

 

PayByPhone makes the transition to cashless parking payments easy.  The app is simple to use, and parking payments can be made in three quick steps.  Additionally, drivers can opt to have text messages sent to their mobile phone, reminding them of their parking session expiring and can extend sessions remotely via the app or a wearable device such as the Apple Watch.

 

“We are excited to welcome Naples to the long list of Florida cities offering contactless parking services,” said Carmen Donnell, Managing Director, North America.  “Now, visitors to the City of Naples can enjoy the convenience of paying for parking with the PayByPhone app on their personal devices.  We have a long history of partnering with communities throughout Florida, and we are confident that drivers in Naples will love using PayByPhone.”

Naples is renowned for its beautiful beaches and tropical climate along with a myriad of golf courses, high-end shopping, and fine dining establishments.  The City of Naples has ranked in the top ten of several surveys including One of the Best Places to Move in the U.S., Fastest Growing Economies in America (ranked #4), and One of the Happiest Cities in America. The easy island lifestyle is a draw for both vacationers and locals. An app to streamline the parking experience lets people focus on exploring Naples’ world-class attractions without worrying about parking time limits or circling blocks to find a parking spot.

“The new parking initiative is part of a pilot program designed to enhance customer convenience and commitment to provide value-added service for visitors. Whether you are reading a book on the beautiful white sand beaches or strolling along the Gulf coast, PayByPhone completes your journey with no disruptions,” said Shalini Diaz, Director of Enterprise Sales.

For the City of Naples, offering mobility parking payments for the first time is a game-changer. “We’re delighted to bring contactless parking to Naples and look forward to working closely with PayByPhone to offer convenience, value, and choice to visitors,” says City Finance Director, Gary Young.  “We look forward to emulating the same great success PayByPhone has demonstrated with neighboring Florida cities and allowing our community to focus on enjoying what the City has to offer.”

Dallas tech, community leaders join forces to strengthen the parking software provider’s payments innovation platform.

 

 

August 22, 2022 (DALLAS, TX) – ParkHub, a leading provider of parking software and payments solutions, today announced the acquisition of another Dallas technology company, payments integrator Fuzse. The acquisition sees ParkHub increase its commitment to innovation in payments not only through integration with its industry-leading parking management software, but as a key driver of customer insights for the company’s hundreds of customers in an array of industries and destinations.

ParkHub, founded in 2010, provides a fully integrated software and payment processing solution to optimize parking operations, facilitate payments, and deliver real-time business insights to customers in multiple vertical markets, including sports, music & entertainment, higher education, parks & recreation, and other destinations. Through reliable technology, advanced reporting and analytics, and integrations with numerous parking and ticketing solutions, ParkHub helps clients increase revenue, improve operational efficiency, and deliver exceptional guest experiences.

“We are thrilled to bring Fuzse into the ParkHub fold as we strive toward payments leadership in the parking industry,” said ParkHub founder and Chief Executive Officer George Baker, Sr. “The convergence point of our hardware, software, and payments solutions is where our customers compete and win with a better customer experience and rich data to inform every decision.”

Fuzse, launched in 2016, is the latest venture from former Blue Star Payment Solutions (now Stack Sports) executive Lane Conner. The company has grown through supporting independent software vendors (ISVs) and developers looking to integrate payment processing with mobile applications and e-commerce platforms, matching its solutions to multiple APIs and front-end technologies.

Conner has served ParkHub as an advisor since 2015. He will take on the role of President of Payments at ParkHub.

“Lane has been integral to ParkHub’s growth as a longtime advisor to our team,” added Baker. “We’re excited to have him on board full-time in support of our mission to build a world-class company. He shares our values, both professionally and personally, to make a difference in the technology space and leave a legacy here in Dallas.”

 

“ParkHub is the ultimate platform for us to see how the union of hardware, software, and payments can take our customers on their journey of growth,” said Conner. “Continuous innovation in payments technology has been a big win for everyone: customers have their purchase experience optimized in better and more efficient ways, while the constant updating of a customer’s transaction history can give businesses unbeatable insights for driving their own product and service enhancements.”

Baker and Conner, who have served together as mentors in the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas Social Innovation Accelerator and on the Board of Directors for Mayor’s Star Council, have each also been named recently to the Dallas Business Journal 40 Under 40 and the Electronic Transaction Association 40 Under 40 for the financial technology industry.
