LONDON, ON, Jan. 18, 2018 – HONK, North America’s fastest and most convenient way to find and pay for parking, today announced it has expanded its coverage at Western University to include all campus metered parking. Students and visitors to the school can now pay for metered parking on campus with the touch of a button using any internet connected device.
HONK initially launched as a pilot program at Western University in 2014, making its services available at three of the busiest metered lots on campus. With a steady increase in adoption for the mobile payment option, HONK has now expanded to give the campus community the ability to pay for parking at all metered spaces across campus.
The HonkAPP allows students, staff and visitors to seamlessly search, pay for, and top up parking directly from their smartphone, tablet or computer. No paper slip goes in the car windshield – the app seamlessly passes the paid license plates to parking enforcement. Users simply click, pay, and walk away.
The app sends a 15-minute reminder before the parking is set to expire and allows users to add more time to their session remotely. This is a great benefit as it removes the need to run out and feed the meter.
“Expanding to cover all of Western’s metered parking is a testament to the demand for our services on campus,” said HONK Founder and CEO Michael Back. “Now that we’re the mobile payment provider for all City of London municipal parking, we’re thrilled to be able to offer students and faculty a complete on and off-campus parking experience throughout the city!”
Currently available at 20 universities and college across Canada, HONK is committed to delivering an innovative parking solution to postsecondary institutions across North America. Students can now park any concerns about feeding the meter, and spend more time hitting those books!
