Customers currently use the PassportParking app, available on both iOS and Android, to pay for metered parking spots either via text, voice or direct mobile transaction. The system provides a digital solution to an increasingly cash (and coin)-free world. Integrating Bitcoin into this system isn’t expected to be a large technical challenge.
Initial tests will start in Charlotte, NC, a banking-friendly city with a population of around 3 million. No timeline for the test was announced, but it is expected to start this year.
