EasyPark ANZ announced as parking App provider of choice for the City of Perth
MELBOURNE, 16 June 2023
EasyPark ANZ is delighted to confirm, that following a competitive tender process, it will partner with the City of Perth to begin rolling out its pay-by-phone parking service at selected locations across the CBD and neighbourhood.
The EasyPark App enables drivers to manage their parking through an innovative digital solution. The mobile technology is the most used in Australia with close to three million users and enables vehicle owners who use the App to only pay for the time they occupy the parking space.
Eli Grossinger Binshtok, CEO at EasyPark ANZ said adding the City of Perth to its client list was a significant milestone.
“This is a huge moment for EasyPark ANZ and the Australian parking industry. Our vision is to make cities more livable and this is a significant step towards this. Our digital parking service solution has been downloaded by close to three million individuals, families, businesses, councils and Parking Operators in all States and Territories. With the City of Perth now on board, we are confident more councils and customers will want to partner with us. We are thrilled to develop this partnership and look forward to working with residents and the City council,” Mr Grossinger Binshtok said.
City of Perth Lord Mayor, Basil Zempilas, said the technology would make parking in the City more accessible.
“Embracing technology like this will vastly improve the parking experience in the City. EasyPark will roll out in more than 9,000 City car bays, first in 17 of our non-boom gated CPP carparks, before expanding to include on-street parking,” Mr Zempilas said.
The City of Perth is the latest major centre to partner with EasyPark ANZ. Already the largest pay-by-phone parking App service in Australia, EasyPark ANZ has established partnerships with more than 70 Australian councils and Parking Operators including the capital cities of Melbourne (VIC), Canberra (ACT) and Hobart (TAS) and many notable others like City of Newcastle (NSW), Gold Coast Council (QLD), City of Greater Geelong (VIC) and Cairns Regional Council (QLD).
In the Greater Perth Metropolitan region, the pay-by-phone service is already available to approximately 500,000 users having been first introduced in the area in 2014. EasyPark ANZ’s Western Australia operations are currently active in the City of South Perth, City of Vincent, City of Stirling, City of Subiaco, City of Swan, St John of God Murdoch Hospital, Town of Cambridge, Town of Victoria Park, City of Melville, and the WA Health Department which includes Royal Perth Hospital, King Edward Memorial Hospital and Fremantle Hospital.
EasyPark ANZ, General Manager, Craig Logan said that by adding the City council to its already extensive network across Perth and its neighbourhoods, drivers can have confidence that, be it for work or pleasure, they only need one App for parking.
“The App is easy to download and use. Drivers simply set the start and end time and if they want to end or extend their session at a different time, they do so via the App, without having to return to the vehicle, only paying for the time they use. We are making parking easier for all parties. For the driver, the App is hassle free and for business customers, we can provide a single, consolidated, monthly invoice, freeing up on-road reps from tedious form filling, and enabling greater business efficiencies. The App works alongside current coin/card meters and the additional benefit for councils is that, in future, they won’t have to invest as much as they currently do in the management and maintenance of physical meters, enabling a better redeployment of resources into other sectors. On top of this, there are environmental benefits for the City as the pay-by-phone service is ticketless, preventing tonnes of printed paper from landfill each year. So, we are excited with this new partnership and look forward to supporting City of Perth users through our dual customer contact centres which operate 365 days a year, including on public holidays, and with extended hours,” Mr Logan said.
The first phase of the City of Perth rollout will apply to 17 carparks. Drivers can download the EasyPark App via the Apple and Android app stores.
