MONTREAL, June 28, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - As of today, for the first time
ever in Québec, motorists have access to a brand new remote payment
solution to cover their parking fees. Stationnement de Montréal's service offering can be accessed through the P$ Mobile Service application, available at no charge on iPhone, BlackBerry® and Android™ devices, as well as online and through its mobile version, at pservicemobile.ca. Stationnement de Montréal's new remote payment solution was developed in collaboration with TC Media's mobile solutions team.
This service enables users to pay for or renew their payment on their
parking space from their smartphone or computer quickly and simply,
without having to drop everything they're doing.
"The P$ Mobile Service remote payment solution enables to increase motorist satisfaction
through a modern, alternative payment option that blends perfectly with
our users' urban lifestyle," said Charles Auger, General Manager of Stationnement de Montréal.
Using P$ Mobile Service is simple: the user must first create an account, then open a session
and enter the appropriate parking space number and the desired parking
period. The entire transaction takes but a few moments. Users will even
have the option to be alerted about 15 minutes before their parking
period expires, so that they may remotely renew it. A $0.40 service
charge will be applied to each transaction to cover this new remote
payment solution's development and operational costs, as well as ensure
the service's maintenance and technological evolution. A video
