Wynantskill, NY based Access Technology Integration (ATI) and Parkeon, a global supplier of smart city solutions for the parking and transit industries, have announced that they have rolled out the Whoosh! mobile parking payment app for the City of Kingston, NY. Whoosh! will provide a huge convenience to motorists as it allows them to pay for their parking with their smart phones, tablets, and computers instead of having to search for change for the parking meters.
The Whoosh! app is available at all on-street parking meter locations throughout downtown Kingston covering approximately 400 parking spaces. Motorists can download the Whoosh! app from the App Store or Google Play Store or visit www.whooshstore.com. Once registered, users can make parking payments, receive time expiration notifications, and extend their parking stay all from their mobile devices. Time extension can also be made on the Apple Watch.
ATI and Parkeon worked with the City’s citation management vendor, Complus Data Innovations (CDI), to integrate Whoosh! payments into CDI’s citation issuance system. Enforcement officers will know in real-time if a motorist has made their payment via Whoosh! just by checking for the license plate number on their handhelds.
Brand ambassadors have been be onsite in Kingston this week in bright pink T-shirts informing parkers and merchants about the new app.
The app is available in more than 30 parking locations around the US. This includes many towns and villages in New York State in addition to Kingston, such as the City of Niagara Falls, the City of Syracuse, Villages of Cold Spring, East Rockaway, Lawrence, Lynbrook, and Valley Stream, and at Binghamton University.
