Mint Inc., a division of Mint Technology Corp., announced today that its PayMint wireless parking system has been implemented in the City of Coral Gables, Florida.
Available at all 4900 on-street and off-street parking spaces throughout the City of Coral Gables, residents and visitors alike are now being offered the convenience of paying for parking using their existing cell phones. Simply by registering online or by phone, PayMint allows the customer to dial a PayMint phone number found on customized decals on the cities meters, and purchase parking time without having to leave their vehicle. Parking enforcement officers in Coral Gables are equipped with handheld wireless devices and log into the PayMint system in order to verify PayMint users have parked. To further benefit the customer, PayMint will automatically send a text message reminder to the user’s cell phone to log out at preset time increments.
