Google Maps offers payment for parking

Google Maps added a useful new feature, the Pay Parking Feature, which makes parking easier and safer.

Google Maps integrates two mobile parking payment services into the Passport and ParkMobile apps.

Both can find, pay and update parking meters or parking fees via smartphone apps

The company has clarified that you need to click on the "Pay parking fee" button that appears when you are near your destination. Then enter the meter number and the period during which you want to stop, then click on the "Payment" option.

You can also extend your parking session with a few clicks, thus increasing the duration of the timer.

Google said: The parking fee feature in Google Maps can be used in more than 400 cities in the United States including Boston, Cincinnati, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Washington DC, etc.

Android phone users got this feature for the first time, and iPhone owners quickly followed suit.

Thanks to integration with Passport and ParkMobile parking solution providers, you can now easily pay via the app on the counter without having to touch the meter.

Google also said it is expanding its ability to pay tolls for more than 80 transportation systems around the world.

This means that you can even know how to pay even before taking public transit and that you can purchase transit credit directly from a card at a specific location like San Francisco.

Google said: This expansion will take place via Android in the coming weeks.

When you search for directions on Google Maps, you will see the option to purchase tickets next to the search results.

Similar to the parking feature, customers must have a Google Pay account linked to a valid credit or debit card in order to complete transactions.

Many transportation systems around the world have modernized the way customs fees are collected, including contactless, Google Pay, or Apple Pay payment methods.

Some transportation systems that rely on weekly or monthly cards, such as the Oyster Card in London or the Clipper Card in San Francisco, also work with Apple and Google to integrate these payment cards into their applications.

According to reports, Google isn't the only tech giant attracting carriers, as Uber and Lyft recently started to incorporate transport trends into their respective apps.
