Updated Green P app makes paying to park easier in Toronto

Toronto, Ontario, Canada — The City of Toronto is home to soaring skyscrapers, green parks and gardens, and the Green P mobile app, the Toronto Parking Authority (TPA)’s private label parking application powered by Passport. The leading transportation software and payments company is rolling out an update to the local favorite which includes easier payment options, a “quick park” feature and a fresh, modern interface.

The app’s update now integrates with Apple Pay and Google Pay, allowing users to have even more payment options at their fingertips. Drivers can extend their parking sessions remotely using the convenient sliding scale feature and the new “quick park” feature saves users’ most recently used parking locations so that paying to park can happen in a matter of two clicks.

“Through modernizing the user interface and introducing new features for our customers, the TPA strives to continue providing a simple, easy and safe way to pay for parking through a contactless method,” said Toronto Parking Authority VP of Business Development Jeffrey Dea.

The Green P mobile app has been a local favorite since it first launched in 2016 and continues to provide drivers with a safe and convenient method of payment for parking. Existing users can enjoy the new features of the Green P mobile app by downloading the update and new users can download the free app and create an account. The app is available to use at approximately 45,000 parking spaces across the City.

“The popular Green P app has provided Torontonians with contactless parking payment options for the last five years,” said Conor Buckley, Passport client success executive. “This update  makes the parking experience even more seamless for the end-user and we are excited to continue this partnership with Canada’s largest city.”

Passport helps municipalities, universities and private operators of all sizes streamline their parking operations in one place and use mobility data more efficiently and effectively. Users can download the free Green P app from the App Store and Google Play or manage parking online at parking.greenp.com.
