HonkMobile Expands to Oshawa, Continues to Transform Parking Industry

OSHAWA, ON–(Marketwired – September 21, 2015) – The City of Oshawa and HonkMobile, Canada’s foremost mobile parking payment app, have entered into an agreement that will transform the way Oshawa motorists pay for parking. Available for all parking spaces and off-street surface parking lots in the City’s downtown, the app enables motorists to pay for parking using their smartphone in addition to the traditional payment methods.

“HonkMobile is excited to partner with the City of Oshawa. Through its visionary leadership, we believe customers in the City will truly appreciate and enjoy the convenience of paying for parking from their smartphones. Our service makes paying for parking fast and simple, enhancing the customer parking experience. This is also a huge step forward for HonkMobile as we continue to expand our presence in markets across Canada and the United States,” says HonkMobile founder & CEO, Michael Back.

“We are very excited to launch HonkMobile’s innovative technology in Oshawa as it provides a convenient way to pay for parking in our bustling downtown, all from your phone,” says Councillor Bob Chapman, Chair of the Community Services Committee. “As a forward-thinking city, we embrace the entrepreneurial spirit and ingenuity that results in technology like that of HonkMobile.”

The HonkMobile app is easy to use and enables customers to pay for parking from their smartphones before departure, during their trip or upon arrival at their destination, adding significant timesaving and convenience to the parking process. Motorists will receive alerts and reminders 15 minutes prior to expiration of their parking session, providing them with the opportunity to pay for additional meter time remotely.

The interactive technology allows Oshawa’s Municipal Law Enforcement officers to use a wireless handheld device to see when a motorist has paid using the app.

Using a single HonkMobile account, users can pay for parking in Oshawa and anywhere HonkMobile is accepted across North America.
