Friday 21 December 2018 | 09:32 CET | News
The city of Milan and DV Ticketing have teamed up to launch a new smartphone-based payment service for parking in blue stripe areas. Vodafone, Wind, 3 Italia and TIM subscribers in the city can now pay for parking with their phone credit by simply sending an SMS with the number of the occupied blue-line space and their car number plate to the number 48444. After a few seconds they're sent a text message confirming their purchase, which can be renewed 10 minutes before the hour expires.
