HonkMobile Launches in Parking Lots Across 20 Canadian Universities and Colleges
HonkMobile has launched their mobile parking solution across 20 Canadian universities and colleges just in time for the 2017 back-to-school season.
Here is a full list of the 20 universities and colleges that the company has expanded into for the 2017 school year:
- U of Windsor
- Algonquin College
- Conestoga College
- Wilfrid Laurier
- UBC Okanagan
- Sheridan College
- Conrad Grebel
- Mohawk College
- U of Lethbridge
- Lethbridge College
- John Abbott College
- Keyano College
- U of A
- St. Lawrence College
The Toronto-based startup lets you enter a destination, drive there and then start the quest for parking, making it super easy for drivers to find and pay for spots even before leaving their houses.
Similar to what Uber has done for transportation, Honk Mobile wants to bring all parts of finding and paying for parking together under one roof. Honk charges a lot operator a transaction fee, and the price for using the app to pay for the spot is often the same as paying at the lot. The app, therefore, increases business for the operator by making drivers aware of the lot.
Users of the app receive alerts 15 minutes before their parking ticket expires, allowing them to pay for additional time using the app. HonkMobile currently has more than 150,000 spots in more than 800 locations across Canada and the United States.
Honk Mobile for iOS is available as a free download in the App Store. The app requires any device running iOS 8.0 or later.
