In line with Singapore’s vision to become a Smart Nation, the Government is developing a digital parking mobile application to allow motorists to pay parking charges through their mobile devices.
The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) and Housing & Development Board (HDB), in partnership with the Government Technology Agency of Singapore (GovTech), are developing a mobile application for motorists to use at public car parks that currently use paper coupons.
The mobile app will provide more convenience for motorists as they need not return to their vehicles to add more coupons to extend their parking session. The benefits of the app include:
A trial will be conducted among public sector officers from May to June 2017 to test the functionalities of the app at selected public car parks in the city area. During this period, the app will be tested, especially the payment module, to be confident of its robustness before the trial is extended to the general public. With the feedback gathered from the trial, the agencies will improve the app for better user experience. For the list of participating public car parks, click here.
The plan is to extend the trial to members of the public later this year. More details of the public trial will be announced later.
