Hanoi Pilots Program to Collect Parking Fees via Mobile App

This May, Hanoi will test out a digital parking system on select streets in Hoan Kiem District.

Following initial plans to adopt technology to improve efficiency in the city’s parking areas, officials from the Hanoi People’s Committee have recently announced that a pilot run will be implemented at two car parking zones on Ly Thuong Kiet and Tran Hung Dao Streets between May and August, reports Vietnam News.

According to Zing, the Hanoi Car Park Exploitation Company will make use of both a mobile application, IPARKING, and on-site terminals to issue receipts, monitor overtime parking and manage payment. IPARKING’s developer, CIS Corporation, will provide the necessary technical training and set-up.

If successful, the project may be extended to other parking zones in Hanoi. The authorities have also asked that CIS Corporation devise an open-source program that is compatible with the city’s traffic management systems.
