Switzerland gains on parking user experience and offers credit card payment

City of Bulle has decided to offer PARK NOW to improve the overall parking experience and allow motorists to pay for parking via credit card, avoiding the costs of upgrading pay and display.

Drivers and visitor of Bulle will be able to use the PARK NOW app to pay for parking. Once they have registered their vehicle and payment card details, they pay to park with the press of a button. After which they can set a desired end time or stop their digital parking meter in Bulle by simply pressing stop. Payment will be done directly through the driver’s credit card.

No parking ticket is required as parking enforcement is carried out via a single handheld terminal computer, which officers use to check whether or not a vehicle has paid. If an enforcing officer finds a vehicle registration that is not on the PARK NOW database, and is not displaying a valid ticket, they can issue a penalty charge notice from the same handheld device.

Registration for PARK NOW is free. The use of the service is free for the motorist. You can immediately park after your signup.
