The City of Kingston is expanding the coverage of the HonkMobile app to offer a new way to pay for accessible, on-street parking.
The popular app used to pay for parking spaces in the City will now also allow users to search, pay for, and top-up their parking from their phone, tablet, or computer.
“The ability to pay without having to physically leave your vehicle is a huge improvement for those parking in accessible spaces and goes well beyond convenience,” said Ian Semple, Director of Transportation Services for the City of Kingston. “Accessible parking users will still be able to pay at meters, if they prefer. This is just another payment option we’re pleased to offer.”
According to the City, more than 50 on-street accessible spaces are now available for payment through HonkMobile. Additionally, the City has also expanded HonkMobile coverage to include designated parking for patients of the Cancer Centre of Southeastern Ontario. The app’s service is still available for surface parking lots downtown, and will be expanding to the City’s remaining hourly lots later this year, the City said in a press release on Monday, Oct. 21, 2019.
When users pay for parking with HonkMobile, Parking Enforcement Officers are able to see a real-time list of the licence plates of those vehicles that have paid for parking. This means users don’t have to worry about displaying a paper receipt.
To use HonkMobile:
- Download the HonkMobile app from HonkMobile.com or your app store.
- Set up your account. You may add as many vehicles and as many payment sources to an account as you would like. HonkMobile accepts PayPal, VISA, debit, ApplePay and Masterpass digital wallet, and also allows you to view all your parking receipts.
