VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, June 17, 2019 – PayByPhone, a leading global provider of mobile parking payment solutions, today announced its partnership with FNP Parking, a lot provider owned and operated by Winnipeg-based Forks North Portage Corporation.

FNP Parking now has PayByPhone in multiple off-street lots, including some of the most popular Winnipeg spots, such as The Forks, Portage Place Shopping Centre and Winnipeg Square.

PayByPhone has been available through the Winnipeg Parking Authority since 2007 and has seen significant adoption increases from 2016 at 7% to 42% as of January 2019. The significant increase can be attributed to various marketing campaigns done by PaybyPhone within the region, along with the removal of the convenience fee to the consumer.

“We have such a strong user base in Winnipeg and really strive to offer them the best experiences possible,” said Roamy Valera, CEO of North America at PayByPhone. “Working with FNP, PayByPhone is doing just that. We are expanding our footprint to some of the most visited destinations in Winnipeg, making paying for parking much more seamless.”
