Parking authorities not ready for this! The app is ok with some minor limitations such as the $20 minimum for infrequent users. However biggest pitfall is some parking officers are not properly trained to see cars that are paid via the app. They will still try and ticket you under the next (more expensive) offence they can find on their system. GreenP customer service was of no help when I reached out to them. Not worth the risk in the long run if you ever run into issue just once it will cost you more hassle and stress to file for dispute.
1. Why is there a $20 minimum account fee/balance needed? 2. BEWARE!!! DON'T UNINSTAL APP BECAUSE YOU WILL LOOSE YOU CREDIT BALANCE!! I re-installed the app once and lost my credit balance then got a new phone and upon installing the app I lost the outstanding credit AGAIN!!!!! There is no mention in the description that you will lose your credit like that! UPDATE... Please fix the app's ability to recognize and charge the CC on file. It keeps asking me to present a CC when a valid CC is on file.
I think it's a great app however I would like to end my parking session and receive a refund if I am early returning to my car as well as the ability to see/find a parking location code without having to look at the meter.. possibly via GPS location or by searching street names or exact location using intersection and navigational directions... I also would like to have a lesser minimum top up concidering minimum charge is 15min which could be a $0.50 cents or $1.00 vs $20 if I am not using app often. Nevertheless app has saved me money and tickets! Love the efficiency of using app as far but could be improved.
Overall the app is good, wonderful when you have no change. It does annoy me that each time I use it I have to reset my password so if that could be fixed. I would like to see the following changes; parking code should be available for look up based on location. Make the code on the side of thw machine larger and place it in a more highly visable location.
I think to date one of the best apps I have ever used. It does exactly what it says it's supposed to do without any issues so far. Great job to the developers for this amazing app (obviously its for Toronto parking, they won't mess that up ;-) )
Poor map This app does not show all available Green P Parking. I have several around my house that I use and the app doesn't show any of them. Also use green P when going to friends houses, also does not show on the map. It would be nice to pre plan Parking when going somewhere in Toronto and this app fails miserably at doing so. Only good for paying really.
