MONTRÉAL, June 1, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - Stationnement de Montréal will, for a second time, reduce the service fee for its P$ Mobile Service app. The fee will be set at 20 cents as of June the 1st. In June of 2014, the original fee of 40 cents was reduced to 30 cents.
The P$ Mobile Service app, which will celebrate its 3rd anniversary this June, has been a resounding success. It enables users to pay for a parking space remotely through their smartphones or the Web. Since its launch, this app has made life easier for over 434,000 registered users. Moreover, in 2014, 25% of these on-street parking fees were paid using the app.
"We believe that the success of a utilitarian app such as P$ Mobile Service must bring real added value to users, explained Charles Auger, General Manager of Stationnement de Montréal. To this end, we have continued to turn their input into action by offering a new function enabling them to know the rates and regulations pertaining to every paid parking space in Montréal."
The 20 cent fee per transaction is used to cover costs associated with the app: operation and management, maintenance, updates and promotional activities. P$ Mobile Service is available on iPhone, BlackBerry® Android™ devices, as well as on the Web and mobile Web.
