Thursday 31 October 2013 13:44 CET | News

US direct carrier billing mobile payments company Boku has entered a partnership with provider of cloud-based parking services PassportParking, to bring direct carrier billing to drivers.

The multi-city trial is set to enable drivers to purchase daily and hourly parking at select lots around the country, using their mobile phone number, with the charge appearing on their carrier billing statement.

Using Boku’s text-to-pay option to pay for parking, drivers need to text the parking zone and spot number to a phone number readily displayed at the lot. The payment is authenticated on the phone and the charge appears on the user’s mobile statement.

PassportParking is an integrated provider of cloud-based parking services, allowing parking providers to access and control parking facilities and their respective technologies while offsite, with an internet connection.

In recent news, Boku has opened three new offices across the Asia Pacific region. The offices are located in Singapore, Sydney, Australia and Tokyo, Japan, with plans for more offices in the region in the coming years.
