ParkMobile and TIBA Parking Systems partner to provide contactless parking payments in gated garages
Parking technology leaders are collaborating to provide a safe and easy way to pay for gated parking
ParkMobile, the mobile parking app in the U.S. has announced a new strategic partnership agreement with TIBA Parking Systems, a member of the FAAC group – the largest manufacturer of Parking Management Systems in North America, to provide contactless payment options at gated garage locations.
The integration between the two technology leaders will make it easier for consumers to pay for parking at gated garages, thus reducing wear and tear on the physical parking equipment. Amid COVID-19 concerns, many parking operators are quickly adding contactless payment options to reduce the potential spread of the virus.
ParkMobile has over 20 million users who will be able to use the app to pay for parking at TIBA’s +1.9 million parking spaces across the country. People parking in a garage with TIBA solutions and hardware can simply pull a ticket from the entry station to lift the gate and enter the garage. Instead of interacting with pay stations or cashiers, ParkMobile users proceed to the exit and simply scan the ticket barcode to lift the gate.
“It is great to bring two parking technology leaders together to create a better experience for the consumer,” says Levi Rinkoff, Executive Vice President of Partnerships and Alliances at TIBA. “The integration between TIBA and ParkMobile will provide a safe and easy way to make parking payments at any location with TIBA equipment. The outcome of this partnership is a comprehensive platform for combined online and drive-up data, smarter yield management, and a better process for supporting our customers and their parking guests.”
ParkMobile and TIBA are currently piloting platform integrations and have plans to rapidly deploy contactless payments at new and existing installations throughout the North American market.
“We have been getting constant feedback from our users that they want more ways to use our app beyond the on-street parking,” says Jon Ziglar, CEO of ParkMobile. “This new partnership with TIBA takes us into the parking garage, giving our users a new way to conveniently use the app to make contactless payments at gated facilities.”
