Paying for Commuter Rail parking becomes faster and more convenient
Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) has completed its mobile payment provider switch. The new service is offered by PayByPhone Technologies, and is available at over 100 MBTA enforced parking facilities along the commuter rail lines in the Boston metro area.
PayByPhone’s smartphone app and dial-in service eliminates the need to stop and insert cash or coins at the payment (honor) boxes for daily parking. Commuter Rail customers no longer need to worry about having single dollar bills or rushing to pay before their train or ferry departs. They can pay for parking with a credit / debit card from the comfort of their vehicle; while waiting on the platform, or for those cutting it close, even after boarding their train or ferry. Parking enforcement officers can view full transaction information on their handheld devices.
