You Can Now Pay for Parking With an App

There's now an app to pay for parking in a number of lots in downtown Kingston.

With the HonkMobileApp, you can add as many vehicles and as many different types of payment to an account.

"I'm thrilled to see the City parking app launch this week. Being able to pay for parking with your phone will make life simple and more convenient for Kingstonians and those visiting the downtown," says Mayor Bryan Paterson.

"These are the type of innovations that move our community forward and contribute to our vision of Kingston as a smart, livable, 21st century city!"

Instead of printing out a ticket, you can pay for parking from your vehicle when you arrive in the lot.

The app can be used at the following lots; Barrack, Drury, Frontenac, Angrove, Springer Memorial, McKee Memorial, Armstrong Memorial, King/Queen, Ontario/Brock and Upper & Lower Robert Bruce.

You can also use the app to add more parking time if you need it from wherever you might be.

"Honk is very excited to partner with Kingston to improve the parking experience for residents and visitors to the city," says Honk Founder and CEO Michael Back.

"It's really a win-win for the municipality and its motorists. The ease and convenience of the app saves motorists the time of standing in front of a parking meter waiting for the session to process, giving them more time to enjoy all that Kingston has to offer."

Parking enforcement officers will have a list of licence plates that have paid for parking, and you will get an alert when you have 15 minutes left on your time.
