Just last year in Wales, it was reported that people posing as parking attendants were collecting money from innocent by-passers who had their car parked at a free public carpark. Thankfully, here in Singapore, we are fortunate to have parking coupons implemented ever since 1980, to replace parking attendants collecting payment and issuing receipts.
Remember your secondary school days, when you were tasked to shade your OMR MCQ answer sheets during major examinations? Similarly, the first type of parking coupons used were cards that required motorists to shade the dates and time. These “OMR sheets” were replaced with the current, die-cut versions. With the implementation of the Electronic Parking System (EPS), there has been a decline of coupon-only carparks.
Now, with the parking.sg app becoming more popular, the multi-coloured parking coupons will soon become obsolete.
Here are some fun facts about the parking.sg app that you might not have known:
1. Save More Money
Users were only allowed to pay based on 30-minute intervals through the parking coupons. Now with the parking.sg app, you'll get to save more as you pay on a per-minute basis. Any unused balance will be refunded.
2. Save More Time
Instead of spending minutes punching holes in the parking coupon, or risking the chance of punching the wrong date, you get to activate your parking session swiftly within seconds.
3. Quick and Fuss-Free usage
All you have to do is to select the car park, key in your vehicle number and parking duration, and use your credit/debit card to make payment. If required, you can conveniently extend the parking session via the app.
