Mobile Parking, or m-Parking, is a convenient system that lets drivers pay for their city parking using their mobile phones.

In the nation’s capital, Tallinn, it has become the most widely used method of payment for parking.

When a driver parks, he or she sends an SMS to the system that includes the parking zone’s code. If police check the vehicle’s registration number in their database, they will see that parking has been paid. The driver sends another SMS when leaving.

Technology is now coming online that allows a car to send an SMS when it parks, so the driver doesn’t have to do it. This innovation is taking the m-Parking system to the next level.

At the end of the month, the cost of the parking is added to the driver’s mobile phone bill.

The system is used in both public and private lots.
