As transactions across the world increasingly become cashless and digital, setting up cashless parking is crucial to operators looking to future-proof their business.
Cashless parking has blown up in recent years, especially after the pandemic that made touchless, digital transactions the norm. Parking through an app is now commonplace with plenty of parking apps available for drivers to choose from. Less than 16% of parkers prefer to pay with cash, a testament to how cash payments are slowly being phased out of society.
Cashless parking removes the whole ordeal where you have to exit the car or stick your hand out of the window to get a ticket. It prevents cars from lining up in your lanes in front of the ticket dispenser and effectively speeds up and simplifies the process of paying for parking.
Smart parking management software also helps operators keep track of all their parking activity in one place. Apps are an easy way for operators to inform the parkers about their operating hours, parking rates and rules, offers and more. People can use the app to find, book and pay for parking, with added perks like lightning-fast access via LPR/RFID and possibly digital permits that makes the process even faster.
While parking apps are a great way to set up cashless access, the fastest and easiest way to set up cashless parking is easily the QR code. With QR technology, parkers can just scan to pay through a web app, without having to download a dedicated parking app to their devices. They can manage their sessions, extend their stay and pay online securely all from the comforts of their browsers.
