RICHMOND, VA, September 22, 2020 – Honk, North America’s leading provider of safe, contactless payments for parking, and CityParking Inc. have partnered to bring contactless parking payments to Richmond. In response to COVID-19 and the ensuing shift towards contactless payments, CityParking Inc. has removed physical pay stations and replaced them with Honk’s tap-to-pay smart stations - HonkTAP - to give drivers a safer and cleaner way to pay for parking. Drivers in Richmond can now easily pay for parking by simply tapping or scanning their phone on the HonkTAP smart stations for a quick and clean guest checkout experience – no app to download or account set-up is required.
CityParking rolled out HonkTAP smart stations across their Richmond locations to give drivers the safest and fastest way to pay for parking. With no pay station or cash to touch, drivers simply - and safely - tap or scan their smartphone on a HonkTAP smart station to pay for their parking session.
HonkTAP works with all smartphone types and accepts Apple Pay, Google Pay, and all major credit and debit cards. There’s an option to receive text reminders when parking is set to expire and the ability to add more time remotely. HonkTAP will be leveraging Apple’s App Clips once released later this year, heightening the native iOS experience for users parking with HonkTAP.
“We’re proud to partner with Honk so commuters, visitors and residents of Richmond have access to the safest way to pay for parking,” said David Sharrar, CityParking President and CEO. “Replacing our pay stations with Honk’s tap-to-pay technology was such a quick and easy process.”
“We’re thrilled to work with CityParking so drivers in Richmond have access to clean, touch-free payments,” said Michael Back, Honk President and CEO. “The need for safe and accessible parking has never been more important – contactless parking has gone from a nice-to-have to a need-to-have. HonkTAP makes it easy for both the parking operator and safety-conscious driver.”
