To solve the issue of parking, the Green P mobile app was launched for street parking in Toronto ten months ago and till now, the app has successfully plummeted nearly one-third of the parking issues, according to the reports generated by Toronto Police Service.
“The drop was most likely due to convenience, no need for change or credit card, the expense reports available for reimbursement on application and e-mail notification when time is due to expire,” adding “There’s much more compliance” – said Brian Moniz, parking enforcement supervisor for Toronto Police.
With the introduction of the app, tickets have dropped at some places but major highlighting feature of the app is its rate of acceptance. With simplicity and flawless use of the app, almost 33% of the Green P transactions are done with the help of the mobile app. This also shows how easy it is to make use of this amazing app.
Ian Maher, vice president of strategic planning and IT for Toronto Parking Authority, mentioned the reason behind the acceptance and success of the app as “We have a lot of people who are app crazy”.
For upcoming months, the Green P app will debut some new features in Toronto. It is expected that this new feature will allow drivers to know about parking spot availability estimates in various locations with the help of historical data.
