A new pay parking app is coming to TransLink Park and Ride lots across the Lower Mainland.
TransLink announced that, as of Wednesday, Sept. 7, the “PayByPhone” app will be operational at all nine of its park and ride locations.
PayByPhone will be available at the following TransLink Park and Ride locations:
• Carvolth Exchange
• Coquitlam Central
• Maple Meadows
• Pitt Meadows
• Port Coquitlam
• Moody Centre
• Scott Road
• South Surrey
Pay parking users at those locations will still have access to the existing TransLink Park&Go app until Oct. 6.
Parking at the 11 other non-TransLink park and ride facilities will remain unchanged.
TransLink says the PayByPhone app – which was founded in Vancouver and has over 55 million users worldwide –will “provide easier and improved pay parking services.”
The app, added TransLink, has features such as:
• 24/7 customer support
• Mobile and web payment available in multiple languages
• Access through the app, website, phone, Amazon Echo Auto, and Siri shortcuts
• Consecutive, multi-day parking
• A guest user feature for users to park without registering for an account
