The Park@Perak app reaches over half a million users

IPOH: Users of the Perak state’s smart parking application, Park@Perak, have reached over half a million or 530,000 people to date.

The mayor of Ipoh, Datuk Rumaizi Baharin said, the application which was first introduced in January 2019 is expected to reach over 700,000 users in 2024.

According to Rumaizi, users from the city of Ipoh are among the highest using the application, with a total of 400,000 people.

“A total of 75 percent of the half million are users from Ipoh with 400,000 people.

“Coupons will no longer be issued from June 1 and there will be no sales to agents since that date as announced by the Ipoh City Council (MBI) since the end of last year,” he said in a statement on Friday.

In the meantime, he said the implementation of digital parking payment is in line with MBI’s direction, to make Ipoh a Smart City by 2030.

He said again, it coincides with the Federal government’s recommendation that government agencies provide services with a digital concept.

In this regard, he said, his party also responded to the suggestion to digitize MBI services including parking matters.

“This application or technology without cash or coupons is not new, in fact it has been practiced for a long time in other countries including in other cities in Malaysia.

“This digital parking payment will sooner or later be used comprehensively and it follows current developments,” he added.

Previously the media reported that Ipoh residents were encouraged to download the Park@Perak application in preparation for the full digitization of parking payment charges from 2024.

Rumaizi is reported to have said that MBI is in a full digitization phase in terms of operations and payment of parking charges.

One of the advantages of using this application is that it is an alternative to paying parking charges through a smartphone, easy and time-saving, can be used throughout Perak.

The operating hours and parking charge rates are according to the respective local authorities (PBT) and are user-friendly because the payment of the parking charge is just using the smartphone in your hand.
