City to adopt pay for park­ing app

Windsor Star - - CITY+REGION -

Soon you’ll be able to park at a city-owned spot in Wind­sor with­out hav­ing to carry around a bunch of change. The City of Wind­sor has an­nounced that on Dec. 18, it will launch a pay for park­ing app ser­vice — al­low­ing mo­torists to pay for me­tered street park­ing or use of mu­nic­i­pal sur­face lots through their smart­phones. Bill Kraloven­sky, the city’s park­ing com­pli­ance and en­force­ment su­per­vi­sor, said the new method of pay­ment won’t re­place coin op­er­a­tions and cash trans­ac­tions for park­ing. Those who want to pay for park­ing the tra­di­tional way will still be able to do so. “(The app) is an­other op­tion and one that we feel is more in keep­ing with the times,” he said. “Ev­ery­one seems to have a smart­phone these days, but not ev­ery­one has change in their pocket.” Although the ser­vice won’t be avail­able un­til Dec. 18, smart­phone users can down­load the app now: Sim­ply visit pass­portca.com with your on­line browser and fol­low the in­struc­tions. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit the park­ing app sec­tion on the City of Wind­sor’s web­site, www.city­wind­sor.ca.
