Drivers in the UK can now use the parking app in six languages
PayByPhone, the global leader in mobile parking payments, today announced that drivers in the United Kingdom can now use their parking app in Punjabi. With more than 270,000 residents in England and Wales identifying Punjabi as their main language, the addition of Punjabi to the PayByPhone service will help make the app more accessible. Earlier this year PayByPhone also added support for Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, and Spanish.
To gain access to the newly supported language within PayByPhone, drivers can simply download the latest version of the app and set their iOS or Android device to Punjabi.
Anthony Cashel, Marketing Manager for PayByPhone UK, says: “Punjabi is the third most commonly spoken language in England and Wales, and we are delighted to be able to offer Punjabi speakers across the UK the ability to use the app in their native tongue. PayByPhone aims to make the process of paying for parking as user-friendly and convenient as possible and having different language options is a key part of that service.”
PayByPhone has been present in the United Kingdom since 2011 and currently helps drivers easily pay for their parking in cities including Manchester, Bournemouth, and seven London Boroughs. In the London Borough of Haringey, PayByPhone has helped completely eliminate the use of pay stations. The service also includes a variety of convenient features, such as text message reminders that are sent prior to a parking session expiring, and the option to extend parking times from anywhere.
