TORONTO, ON, Nov 18, 2021 – HONK, North America’s leading provider of contactless payments, announced today the launch of TAP FOR PARKING GARAGES — an end-to-end contactless payment solution for parking at event venues. With no hardware to install, no app to download, and no need for any contact, HONK’s cloud-based payment solution facilitates safe and quick parking at venues across the US and Canada. Drivers gain entry by scanning a QR code, while parking operators eliminate labour and the need for cash handling, increasing throughput and maximizing revenue.

“TAP FOR PARKING GARAGES is an innovative payment platform that gives parking operators the opportunity to shift their parking to a contactless operation,” said Michael Back, HONK Founder and CEO. “Our latest payments technology has created an end-to-end, cashless solution for venues to sell touchless parking across the United States and Canada.”

The parking industry’s first-of-its-kind cloud-based solution for venue parking, TAP FOR PARKING GARAGES integrates with existing payment infrastructure – gated or non-gated – to reduce traffic congestion around point of entry and departure. Gone are the days of cars lined up waiting to pay – TAP FOR PARKING GARAGES creates a frictionless customer experience where drivers can quickly and efficiently pay for parking. The touchless payment system reduces congestion, while maximizing revenue and providing operators with access to live capacity tracking and monitoring.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Driver scans QR code and is presented with the event rate
  2. Driver selects payment method (Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal, or any major credit card)
  3. Driver receives QR code as proof of payment to scan in and out of parking facility

HONK’s new touchless technology allows venues to facilitate safe and quick parking payments for event-goers and staff alike, while maximizing parking operators’ bottom line.
