Honk Launches Parking at Toronto Community Housing

Honk, the Innovative App Transforming Parking in North America, Teams up with the Toronto Community Housing Corporation to Offer Monthly Parking to Keep Up with Growing Demand

TORONTO, Oct. 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HonkMobile, North America’s fastest and most convenient way to find and pay for parking, announced it has begun offering monthly parking at Toronto Community Housing locations across the city. Toronto Community Housing Corporation is the second largest housing provider in North America, and Honk tapped into its unused parking inventory to give users access to thousands of additional monthly parking options across the city with the touch of a button.

The Honk app allows motorists to seamlessly search, pay for, and top up parking directly from their smartphone, tablet or computer. By making excess parking spaces available to the general public in a market where demand far exceeds supply, Honk helps alleviate the frustration of finding an affordable monthly parking spot in the downtown core.

Honk users can purchase a monthly pass for one of thousands of underground and aboveground spots using any internet connected device. Profits from each parking transaction booked through Honk will be reinvested into the Toronto Community Housing Corporation, providing them with additional revenue to further their mission.

Honk’s fast and easy service is available immediately at 206 community housing locations across Toronto and the GTA. Additional lots will be added in the coming months to accommodate growing demand since the launch of this partnership.

“Honk is committed to operating a responsible and sustainable business that positively impacts the communities of our users,” said Honk Founder and CEO Michael Back. “Our partnership with the Toronto Community Housing Corporation demonstrates how tech can work with community organizations to produce innovative solutions that help improve the lives of residents while furthering those organizations’ missions. This is a win for motorists who are on the hunt for affordable monthly parking in the city.”
