The Town of Oakville has partnered with HonkMobile to offer a new way to pay for parking at municipal parking lots in Downtown Oakville and Kerr Village. In addition to the existing Pay by Plate machines, visitors can now pay for parking from their smartphone using the Honk app.
“We’re always looking for new ways to use technology to enhance town services,” said Mayor Rob Burton. “With the Honk app, there is no waiting at the pay stations. It’s easy as park, search, pay and go, making it easier to shop, visit and enjoy all that Downtown and Kerr Village has to offer.”
Honk also notifies users when their time is about to expire and allows them to buy additional time right from their smartphone, eliminating the need to rush back to a parking machine and helping to avoid tickets.
Simply download the free app from honkmobile.com, the App Store or Google Play and set up your account. When you’re ready to park, choose your zone and enter the parking time needed. Information is also posted on each parking lot’s pay-by-plate machines, if you need help.
“Honk is revolutionizing parking across North America and we are thrilled to bring our service to Oakville,” says Honk Founder and CEO Michael Back. “It’s really a win-win for the town and its’ motorists. As mobile adoption increases, there is less need for parking equipment and meters and their associated maintenance costs. The ease and convenience of the app eliminates the need to get out of the car to pay for parking.”
Look for the signs at all municipal parking lots that use Honk! On-street mobile payment will be accepted in the coming weeks.
