Japan’s leading parking lot operator Park 24 has announced the launch of an experiment designed to test a FeliCa-based cashless payment solution at its Times 24-hour metered parking lots. The experiment, to last through August 15, supports the N504iC and SO504iC. Park 24 currently has 5,225 parking sites with a total of 81,364 parking spaces across Japan.
The field test enables users of NTT DoCoMo’s FeliCa-embedded i-mode cellular phones to pay parking fees by simply holding their handsets against a self-checkout machine. The company plans to actively install the cashless payment solution at the Times parking lots to make payment easier and faster. Via: JCN.
