Pay for parking, find nearby carparks and create a monthly parking pass.
parkbytext™, Ireland’s leading mobile parking operator, has officially launched a brand new mobile phone application that is set to make parking simpler across Ireland’s streets and carparks.
Using the App, registered users can top up their account; create monthly and weekly parking permits; search nearby and favourite car parks and view their parking history. After launching the App in beta mode last April, 4,570 Apple users and 2,410 Android users have downloaded the app, equating to 23% of allparkbytext™ customers.Compared to the same period last year, 27% more people used parkbytext™ to pay for their parking in the first six months of 2013, reflecting the growth in popularity of smart phones. Furthermore, this growth highlights the growing popularity and demand for mobile parking.Welcoming the app, Managing Director Jason Ballard said: “parkbytext™ strives to positively change driver behaviours, making it easier to pay for parking. We already accept payments online, via text messaging and through interactive voice response technology, so an App was the obvious next step in our offering to consumers.”
parkbytext™ operates over 200 car parks in Ireland and the UK, including Irish Rail’s nationwide car parks and college campus sites, including Limerick Institute of Technology and Dundalk Institute of Technology.
