VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

ZipBy, a global leader in parking technology, today announced a partnership with EasyPark, Canada to launch a ticketless solution via the ZipBy mobile app at all EasyPark locations in the Greater Vancouver area.

The new app will allow drivers to book and pay for parking through their mobile devices, eliminating the need to use cash or touch parking meters. Users can extend their parking session through the ZipBy app without having to return to the meter to top up. This saves the driver from rushing to the parking meter or risking a parking fine. “It’s also a safer solution for drivers,” says EasyPark COO Gary Bradley, “We always strive to create a safe environment for our customers and pay for parking while you’re still in your vehicle or on the way to a meeting better than waiting a yard away”.
