You can now use TWINT as a payment method at 315 parking meters for approximately 7875 parking spaces.
To benefit from this offer, all drivers need to do is open the TWINT app, scan the TWINT QR code on the parking meter, enter their car registration number on a one-time basis and select the desired parking period in the app. The fee is then paid via TWINT and debited directly from the saved bank account or credit card. Should the driver leave their parking space earlier than planned, the remaining amount is automatically reimbursed via the TWINT app. This means that one only pays for the actual parking time.
This innovative solution is made possible by the partnership between TWINT and Digitalparking, the Swiss specialist for car-park management. 'With TWINT, we have found a strong partner. By the end of 2019, Digitalparking will have launched the solution in half of Switzerland’s major towns and cities, says Reto Schläpfer, Managing Director of Digitalparking.
Since its initial launch in Zug last summer, a whole range of Swiss cities have begun offering TWINT as a payment method for parking spaces. There are now already over 70’000 parking spaces where this is possible in Switzerland. At www.twint.ch/parking you will find a map with all the places you can pay for parking using TWINT.
Thomas John, Head of Transport Technology and Logistics, Chur City Police: 'Digitalisation is a dynamic process that affects all of us. Since 9 May, Chur has offered cashless payments for parking fees across the board at all public parking spaces. Parking fees can now be paid for everywhere conveniently with your smartphone. I am convinced that this simple and modern additional service will establish itself as an alternative to parking meters and pay machines'.
Markus Kilb, CEO of TWINT, said: 'TWINT is Switzerland’s digital cash. Users particularly like the fact that this is a simple parking-fee payment method without the hassle of finding coins.'
