Hobart To Get Australia’s First Apple-Pay Parking
Courtesy of a new partnership with Smart Parking Limited, Hobart City Council is set launch a major upgrade to the Tasmanian capital’s parking system.
Smart Parking CEO Paul Gillespie says that “we are proud to announce the new contract with Hobart City Council. The continued uptake of our systems in Australia and beyond further cements our position as a world leader in the design, development and management of parking technology.”
“We are also pleased to be working with APARC, which distributes machines made by Parkeon, a major player in parking management solutions,” he said.
The contract, worth approximately $800,000, will see 2100 new sensors installed across the city’s parking lots to give Hobart residents real-time parking data.
Smart Parking has over 40,000 vehicle detection sensors installed in 17 countries. However, these new sensors will be the first in Australia to allows users to pay their parking using Apple Pay.
