Parkmobile m-payment service goes live on Volvo cars

Wednesday 15 January 2014 | 11:21 CET | News
Parkmobile has announced that its app is now compatible with Volvo Sensus Connect. Drivers will be able to pay for a parking space with an on-file credit or debit card, eliminating the need to touch their mobile phone while driving. The Parkmobile system eliminates the need to swipe a card or feed coins to a meter. Drivers can also receive a reminder to their smartphone 15 minutes prior to the expiration of their parking session, enabling them to remotely extend their parking session if they have not exceeded the maximum allowed time.
