Drivers prefer ParkbySMS to any other parking method because it is so easy to use. There is no need for cash, credit cards or registration and anyone with any mobile phone (it doesn't have to be a smartphone) can use the system.
Paying with ParkBySMS is a one-step process. Drivers simply send an SMS text message containing their vehicle registration number to a dedicated "short-code" number (e.g. 1302) and the parking charge is debited directly to their mobile phone bill. There are NO other steps involved and no other parking payment method even comes close to being so easy to use.
There are many additional convenient features. For example, the ParkBySMS solution delivers a helpful SMS reminder 15 minutes before the parking time expires, allowing drivers to increase their parking time as needed, again by SMS. More advanced users can also enjoy the benefits of a web portal and mobile app, so that they can track expenses as well as receive traffic and parking updates.
