Parking apps have definitely made life a little easier as you no longer have to dig for coins or search for a shop that sells parking coupons. Now you can also trim down the apps on your phone as Smart Selangor Parking (SSP) also covers Kuala Lumpur, joining seven local councils in Selangor.
Not only can the app be used to pay for public parking, it can also be used for selected private parking lots where users will only need to scan a QR code with their mobile app before entering the parking lot to make payment. Currently the SSP app can be used at Paramount and Asia Jaya LRT, Kelana Jaya stadium and Atria hawker stalls parking lots.
With all these options available, the local government is offering a one-month promotion that starts now until August 9 to encourage more motorists to use the app.
For every top-up of MYR50 up to MYR99 in the app, users will receive an additional MYR1 credit, MYR3 credit for every MYR100 to MYR199 top-up, MYR6 for every MYR200 to MYR299 top-up, MYR9 for every MYR300 to MYR399 top-up, and MYR12 for every MYR400 to MYR499 and above.
And even if you do decide not to use the SSP, no worries; the coin or coupon system are still in use.
