Using Celphones to Pay for Parking

29 Aug ’05

BusinessWeek TechBeat Blog is reporting that a major U.S. city will this week begin to allow residents to pay for parking with celphones:

A major U.S. city will announce this week that it will allow its residents to pay for their parking wirelessly, with their cell phones. It won’t be the first to do that: Denver drivers and bicycle riders are already able to pay for parking and bike lockers with their mobiles.

What’s nifty about the new service is that it will text-message consumers’ phones, letting them know, say, that their parking meter will expire in 10 minutes. Now that’s what I call service!
