Parkopedia, the leading parking data provider in the US, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Passport, a leading digital platform provider for managing transportation and software payments in cities across the US and Canada. The partnership will enable Parkopedia to expand parking payments via its integrated in-car payment platform across Passport’s 5,000 locations in 800 towns nationwide.
Passport’s platform is currently used by cities, agencies and universities, including locations of Chicago, Toronto, Los Angeles and Miami, to power their mobility operations. The platform enables clients to manage their parking rates and rules in a single system of record and gain insights from their payment data to more efficiently manage on-street activity.
Passport’s payment API will integrate seamlessly into Parkopedia’s integrated in-car payment platform, which allows drivers to pay for both on and off-street parking, as well EV charging, tolls and ‘pay-at-the-pump’ fueling, all via the vehicle’s infotainment screen. The platform solves the time-consuming and expensive task of aggregating a large number of service suppliers and payment providers for automakers, uniting them into a single integrated solution. Its unique Single Sign-On feature removes the need for drivers to register for multiple accounts, enabling a complete and seamless user experience for drivers.
Anthony Michael Ibrahim, Director of Business Development and Partnerships in North America at Parkopedia, said: “We are delighted to partner with Passport, increasing our payment platform’s parking coverage across North America. As providers of cutting edge driver convenience technology, Passport and Parkopedia are working together to provide positive user experiences for all involved in the mobility industry, including automakers, drivers, municipalities and facilities owners.”
Henry Bowe, Director of Product Partnerships at Passport, commented: “Our partnership with Parkopedia will allow drivers to benefit from convenient parking payment technology via their in-car infotainment screens. By delivering a seamless parking experience for drivers, we provide our clients with the tools needed to continually update and improve the parking payment process within their cities and facilities.”
