DETAILS ON THE APP
HotSpot, a Canadian tech company, provides an affordable pay-for-membership mobile app that offers users convenient parking solutions including:
-> Notification when their paid time is close to expiring -> The option to add more time up to the maximum for the space -> The option to cancel their parking session early and be refunded for any unused time -> Access to all metered/pay-and-display parking in Peterborough -> Consistent service throughout the City of Peterborough and Trent University campuses.
“We are excited to bring this convenient option for Peterborough drivers,” says Mayor-Elect Diane Therrien. “Instead of digging for coins for the parking meter, they’ll now be able to use their smartphone to pay electronically.”
“We see many people who are shopping, getting a hair cut or eating a meal worry about a pending ticket, and those people being able to add a few more minutes with this app is going to be great for downtown businesses,” says Terry Guiel, Executive Director, DBIA. “It’s great to see the city embrace this technology.”
