People around the world are looking for ways to increase physical distance with each other and reduce contact with shared surfaces to “flatten the curve” and slow the spread of COVID-19 otherwise known as the Coronavirus. Businesses, cities, and households are making changes in this new world that we live in.
With the rapid spread of the COVID-19 pandemic around the world, people have become more and more aware of common surfaces they interact with on a day-to-day basis. With a heightened awareness of how diseases spread, society’s attitude towards shared or common surfaces is changing.
But what does this mean for the parking industry? Many cities and businesses are implementing new processes as part of organisation-wide responses to the virus.
Two cities have seen their existing Frogparking Mobile App take an unexpectedly prominent role as part of their strategies to slow the virus and keep some level of normal service for customers during the pandemic.
The City of Laguna Beach and the City of Palmerston North have been able to offer a completely contactless payment experience for visitors and residents. Drivers can choose to avoid interacting with on-street hardware like metres or ticket machines when paying for parking, eliminating interaction with this common surface.
There are three easy ways Frogparking’s technology can help with your post-COVID-19 strategy. Frogparking’s mobile app is a proven solution, with a number of cities, universities, medical facilities, and shopping centres making the app available to their customers to display parking availability, find my car functionality, and contactless parking payment.
Is your city, airport, retail property, university, or health facility next? Can Frogparking be part of your response to COVID-19, with a contactless payment solution that also makes the parking experience a breeze? Let’s talk!
