HonkMobile, North America’s fastest and most convenient way to find and pay for parking announced today an expansion to the Town of Gananoque. Just in time for summer tourist season, residents and visitors can now pay for municipal and trailer parking with the touch of a button using any internet connected device.
Town officials, along with Honk representative Tyson Sinclair, gathered at Town Hall for the app’s official launch today. The Honk app allows Gananoque residents and visitors to seamlessly search, pay for, and top up parking directly from their smartphone, tablet or computer.
Honk’s fast and easy service is available immediately at the municipal lot located at 760 Stone St. (for vehicles only), and at the Lou Jeffries, Gananoque & T.L.T.I Recreation Centre at 600 King St. for vehicles with boat trailers. The Town is planning to implement the app for on street metered parking spaces in the coming weeks.
Fishing and boating enthusiasts using the app can pay for multiple days at a time conveniently through their device. The app conveniently notifies users when their parking session is set to expire, allowing them to buy additional time remotely - a great feature when boating excursions run late.
“Honk’s innovative technology is bringing great results to other municipalities and we’re confident it will also help our community,” said Gananoque Mayor, Erika Demchuk. “The online parking system provides us with an affordable add-on to the traditional parking meters. This technology will make parking faster, easier and safer while saving our town money which can be reinvested in other priorities.”
“Gananoque and the 1000 Islands is a sightseer’s paradise and we want to make visiting even more enjoyable by offering hassle-free parking,” said Honk Founder and CEO Michael Back. “This announcement is a win-win for the municipality and motorists. This convenient app allows users to pay for parking while out on a boat or off site.”
