Verrus Introduces PayByPhone iPhone App!

A few months ago, Verrus introduced an amazing mobile website that enabled users to log in to their account, and associated parking lot number, to pay for parking! While the calling-in process was not inconvenient, it was great to have an additional method to access your account.

For those wondering what Verrus is, it is a company that partners with parking authorities across Canada and the USA to allow users to pay for parking via their mobile phone instead of at the meter.

As I recommended when Verrus launched the mobile site, the company has now released an official mobile app! Similar to the mobile website, the new iOS app can do the following:

  • Pay for parking
  • Extend parking
  • Edit vehicles
  • Edit payment details
  • Manage account settings
  • Sign-up for a PayByPhone account

While the features are similar, the iOS app is significantly cleaned up, includes an “Info” tab with a helpline and email address and a new Map function to show your current location.

In Vancouver, I use Verrus all the time with EasyPark. Now with the mobile app, this is even better! You can get Verrus PayByPhone in the App Store for free.

    I don’t understand ? What happens to the ticket you put on your dash ? What of parking are you talking about ?

  • I imagine it automatically updates your meter or something like that.
    Wish we had something like that here in St. John’s

  • There is no ticket. Your ticket is linked to your license plate when you park, via an online account.

  • Chris from PayByPhone (Verrus)

    Gary is correct, when you pay for parking by phone,
    your license plate number and parking time are automatically displayed on the
    device used by the parking officer. Saves you time not having to wait at the parking machine, get your ticket, and walk back to your car.

    Wish that the Calgary Parking Authority would set that up to.  ParkPlus.CA is a great system but the added phone calls and the lack of reliable notifications when time expires could be solved by this.

    Does it only work with easy park? What about street meters? Or impark?

  • Mack Benz

    How do they take the time to develop this for Apple but not for Android when in Western Canada Android users outweigh iPhone by 2:1…. Come on Verrus, get with it. You’re making profit head over heels but can only afford one developer that codes for iPhones only? Pathetic. — Think I’ll go back to coins Verrus, for your siding with the ghost of Jobs.

  • Have you tried their mobile site? It does suck to not have a native app though.
