City of North Bay launches mobile pay app powered by Passport
Drivers no longer have to dig for coins to pay for parking
North Bay, Ontario (June 1, 2018) — A new mobile application is available for parkers in the City of North Bay. The mobile parking app enables drivers to conveniently pay for their parking at any of its nearly 850 on-street and off-street car parks across the city. The app is powered by the global leader of mobile payments for parking and transit, Passport, serving cities and universities across North America.
In addition to paying for parking, users can:
- Monitor their parking sessions
- Extend their sessions remotely
- View payment history
- Receive emailed receipts
The City of North Bay worked in conjunction with the North Bay Downtown Improvement Area (DIA) to bring this innovative technology to drivers. Enabling a technology-driven solution for parking is expected to help reduce congestion and increase visitors to the area, which will drive development to local businesses.
“We are excited to offer residents and visitors a simple option to pay for parking on-the-go,” said Robin Cameron, North Bay facilities and parking supervisor. “The app provides a seamless parking experience and even enables local businesses and merchants to validate parking for their customers.”
“We are thrilled to bring Passport’s mobile technology to North Bay and be part of the City’s forward-thinking initiatives,” said Passport Northeast Sales Executive Alexandra Wells. “The Passport app enables a seamless experience for drivers to pay for and add time to their parking from the convenience of their phones.”
