Parking Payment In Selangor To Go Digital Starting 2022
Say goodbye to (broken) coin machines
The use of paper parking coupons and manual payment via coin machines for street parking in Selangor will end on 31 December 2021. These methods will be replaced by a fully digital payment system which can be made via the Smart Selangor Parking (SSP) app beginning 3 January 2022.
The app, which can be downloaded from the Apple App Store, Google Play Store and Huawei App Gallery, requires users to fill in their car registration number and pay based on the parking period.
Motorists who do not own a smartphone or online banking, however, can make payments and top-up credits for e-coupons through physical e-coupon agents such as 7-Eleven, 99 Speedmart and MyPOSPay that bear the SSP and ‘e-Coupon sold here’ signs.
Meanwhile, those who still have leftover paper parking coupons need not fret as they are given until 31 March 2022 to use them up.
As an alternative, parking payments can also be made through Touch ‘n Go eWallet and Flexi Parking apps.
Speaking to reporters back in March, State Local Government, Public Transport and New Village Development Committee chairman Ng Sze Han said the SSP app has been standardised and used in local authorities statewide.
He also claimed that by using the app, the state government can save a total of 634,994 kg of paper.
Taking into account the difficulty of getting a parking bay at certain commercial areas in Selangor, Ng said the state government would create a hot zone that has a maximum time limit to provide convenience to other motorists.
