Google Maps Now Lets You Pay For Parking
GOOGLE MAPS WILL NOW LET YOU PAY FOR PARKING AND TRANSIT WITHOUT LEAVING THE APP
(CNN) – Google Map users listen up.
It could be a little easier next time you need to pay for parking or a train ticket.
Google’s new feature allows you to bypass parking meters and train ticket machines.
All you have to do is connect your Google Maps account with your Google Pay wallet.
The new perks can save you time and also allow you to avoid touching public surfaces; a big plus during the pandemic.
For parking, the company has partnered with two tech providers: Passport and Parkmobile.
Both will link Google Maps to street parking meters.
For public transportation, Google says the maps app can connect with more than 80 transit agencies around the world.
