Mosman Council has introduced an award-winning parking payment app to its suite of contactless and paperless parking solutions for local residents.
CellOPark, from Australian technology company Smarter City Solutions, will work in conjunction with the current parking payment methods, as a part of Council’s efforts to embrace new technology and implement innovative parking solutions.
Mosman Council General Manager, Dominic Johnson said the pay-by-app service would further enhance the driving and parking experience in Mosman.
“The app is the latest in a suite of innovative solutions implemented by Mosman Council to ensure Mosman continues to develop along a smart city pathway,” said Mr Johnson.
“Local users will benefit from the Mosman-specific information, which accounts for vPermit holders’ free parking periods, contributing to a tailored parking experience.”
The CellOPark system will also automatically give eligible Mosman residents using vPermit a ‘free’ three-hour period to park in areas such as The Spit, Balmoral, Clifton Gardens, Rosherville Reserve and also near Taronga Zoo.
Managing Director of Smarter City Solutions, Ori Almong said the COVID-19 pandemic had accelerated the need for innovative, contactless parking solutions such as CellOPark and vPermit.
“We are pleased to team up with Mosman Council for the second time to create a parking management solution which suits the needs of residents, visitors, businesses and the council while still offering rich data for future council planning,” said Mr Almong.
“Now via the CellOPark app and mobile site, visitors and residents of Mosman will be given more flexibility and options for payment when looking to park in the council area and with our premium reminder service, they will never risk a fine again.
“CellOPark’s technology simplifies the entire parking process for visitors, residents and the council. Motorists can easily start a parking session in the zone they parked in using GPS location and because accounts are linked to license plates, there is no need to hold on to printed tickets or display them on dashboards.”
