La Trobe University selects CellOPark for Convenient Ticketless Parking
La Trobe University has rolled out an innovative new app, web and phone based solution to manage parking payments and virtual permits, streamlining the parking process across its eight campuses.
The new CellOPark system replaces the previous student permit parking system which was manual, paper-based, and inflexible. With CellOPark, Students and staff will no longer need to search for parking meters, exact change or lost tickets. Furthermore, motorists only ever pay for the exact parking time they require, helping to avoid needlessly overfeeding the meter.
To cater for the University’s unique needs, the system also integrates a new virtual, self-managed permit system called ‘vPermit’, and physical ‘pay by plate’ machines to cater for one-off visitors to the University.
Students and staff are able to simply install the free app (native on iOS and Android) on their smartphone and register their details. Starting a paid parking session is then as easy as selecting the parking zone and pressing ‘START’ or pointing the phone’s camera at a QR code on CellOPark zone signage.
Michael Doherty, General Manager, CellOPark believes the rollout demonstrates La Trobe University’s commitment to innovation.
“Since our first integrated solution for campus parking, we have experienced an ever increasing demand for this highly efficient and user-friendly technology,” said Michael Doherty, General Manager of CellOPark Australia. “La Trobe University in particular has a great reputation for fostering innovation and technology. We appreciate this opportunity and look forward to working with the University in deploying the technology to meet the needs of both staff and students.”
Non-smartphone users can also enjoy the convenience of the CellOPark system by registering their details at www.cellopark.com.au. Following registration, users will have access to parking by calling (03) 9111 1799 and following the prompts.
La Trobe motorists join over 100,000 members that already enjoy the benefits of CellOPark’s Pay-by-App, Pay-by-Phone and vPermit parking technology solutions.
