NSW Park’nPay expands to North Beaches, smart kerbside test begins in Liverpool
The New South Wales government’s Park’nPay app is now available to drivers in the North Beaches. The application, launched in October 2019, allows drivers to use their phones to pay for parking and also top up.
The minister for digital and minister for customer service, Victor Dominello, said there were 56,000 drivers currently using the app. The app helps drivers avoid fines by sending alerts when their meter is low.
The app applies to “many”, but not all, machines and Pay and Display carparks on the beaches and reserves of the peninsula. The app works throughout Liverpool, The Rocks, Burwood, Hunters Hill, Mosman, Central Coast, Port Stephens, Willoughby, and Cumberland, as well as in Park & Ride car parks.
A new feature allows drivers to pay for the time they park rather than paying in advance for using two hours that they might only need 30 minutes.
A $ 1 million investment from the NSW Smart Places Acceleration Fund will see a 12 -month trial of smart kerbside in Liverpool to show in real time where street parking is available. The data collected during the test will help inform future transportation planning. The state government has not announced how drivers could benefit from it, but it could result in “digital parking signs directing drivers to parking spots”.
