Vancouver’s PayByPhone has announced the launch of PayByPhone Maps in Seattle and surrounding areas including Bellingham.
Seattle is the first major North American city using the Maps feature, with more locations rolling out the feature in the coming months.
With PayByPhone Maps, Seattle area motorists turn on their location services and can see available parking spaces anywhere PayByPhone is available.
The maps are interactive, allowing users to determine hours, restrictions and accepted payment methods for different parking locations throughout the city and its suburbs.
“We are excited about this opportunity to improve and simplify the parking landscape in Seattle,” said Sam Zimbabwe, Seattle Department of Transportation Director.
“The PayByPhone partnership helps our residents and visitors easily find and pay for parking from their mobile devices and makes it more convenient to explore all parts of our city.”
PayByPhone Maps also empowers municipality leaders to get a visual understanding of parking for better curbside management.
