App helps Niagara Falls residents top up parking meters

Parking in Niagara Falls could be getting a lot easier with a new app.

Representatives of Honk Mobile appeared at council this week to outline plans for the rollout this month.

The app allows drivers to top up their time from their smart phone instead of trudging out to check on the meter -  users will receive a message right on their phone when their time is ticking down.

All on street and off street city run spaces in Niagara Falls will be using the program.

Drivers in St. Catharines already use Honk for some downtown parking services.
