What is mobile parking?

Mobile parking is the cashless and ticketless handling of parking actions on-street. Instead of searching for change and a parking meter, you can now simply start and end your parking action at the touch of a button with the PARK NOW iOs app / Android app or through a simple phone call or SMS.

What is PARK NOW?

PARK NOW redefines parking. Our aim is to achieve easy and stress-free parking, without the hassle of finding change to pay for your parking, be it on- or off-street. With the help of our PARK NOW app, you can find parking close-by and pay without having to use cash.

Furthermore, you can activate and end your parking action with the touch of a button. No longer will you need to make a detour to find parking-ticket machines in car parks. Your parking history can be viewed within the app or through your personal account online. Parking couldn’t be more convenient.

We are also constantly aiming to improve our service – in the near future, PARK NOW will be available directly within your in-car navigation system and will enable you to reserve parking spaces in car parks.
