Penang is always moving forward, especially when it comes to technology! Part of the smart city initiative, Penang Smart Parking (PSP) has been established for one year, both on the island and in the mainland. Just one click away, and you will be able to locate the nearest parking lot, pay it online, and you will be on your way! Ready to lead an easier life? Here’s what you need to know about PSP!
Go-To App For All Things Parking In Penang
1. Pay Parking Easily
Forget the hassle of heading to the nearest convenience store to get parking coupons! With PSP, you can pay for your parking in a jiffy. The mobile app allows users to reload online, too. Payment methods include Boost, Touch ‘n Go, Maybank QRPay, and other mediums. Depending on your usage, you can opt for RM10 to RM200. Not to worry, other amounts are encouraged, too! It is time to forget about the hassle of running back to your car when the coupons are no longer valid – ’cause you can do everything from your phone.
2. Pay Compound In A Few Clicks
Imagine heading down to the nearest local council’s office, queue in line, and pay for the compound that you wish you didn’t have in the first place. The entire process is nothing but tedious! Instead, simply use PSP to make payment in the comfort of your own home. In the app, choose ‘Compound’, select the vehicle, and make the payment. Just like that, payment is complete!
3. Monthly Passes Available
Do you commonly park outdoors? Well, this feature is made just for you. Instead of making a payment every single time you have parked your car, opt for monthly passes instead. Priced at RM150 per month for island and RM60 for Seberang Perai, it is not too shabby if you’re parking outdoors all the time! Using PSP is the easiest way to obtain monthly passes in Penang.
4. Conveniently Find Parking Lots (Available In Selected Locations, More To Come)
Gone are the days where you roam around George Town looking for the ideal parking spots to cafe hop! By using PSP’s ‘Find Parking’ feature, it allows you to find the best parking spots to the location you’re heading to. Simply tap on the location, and the mobile app will show you the parking lots that are available. New to the location? PSP is linked to Waze to navigate you there!
How To Download & Register For PSP
PSP is available on Google Play, App Store, and Huawei App Gallery. Simply download, and register yourself. To get started, remember to register for your vehicle, too! You will be happy to know that you can register multiple vehicles in the app. To use the parking payment, reload your preferred amount – and, you’re good to go!
