Honk and USP Parking Bring Contactless Parking to Washington DC

Drivers in Washington can now skip the pay station and safely pay for parking from their phone – No App, Just Tap!


WASHINGTON, DC, October 6, 2020 – Honk, the leader in contactless payments for parking, and USP Parking, DC-based parking facility management company, announced today a partnership that brings contactless parking payments to Washington DC. The coronavirus outbreak has highlighted the need for everyday services that reduce physical contact. Thanks to Honk’s patent-pending touch-free solution - HonkTAP - drivers can now bypass high-touch pay stations and safely pay for parking with a simple tap or scan of their phone.

“We’re thrilled to partner with USP Parking and equip their Washington parking facilities with our contactless payment technology,” says Michael Back, Honk President and CEO. “There’s a new wave of consumers’ expecting safe and touchless payments – through our partnership with USP, safety-conscious drivers in Washington now have access to the cleanest way to pay for parking.”

USP Parking rolled out HonkTAP smart stations at various surface parking locations across Washington DC. 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 has all the much-loved features and functionality of an app, without the download or account setup. HonkTAP works with all smartphone types and accepts Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal, and all major credit and debit cards. Drivers have an option to receive text reminders when their parking is set to expire and the ability to add more time remotely.

“Providing our customers with the safest parking experience is our top priority,” says Ben Tesfaye, Director of Operations, USP Parking. “Our partnership with Honk allows us to deliver on our safety-first mission. As we restart our valet services in the months ahead, we’ll incorporate Honk’s touch-free technology into the valet experience as well.”
