Georgian College removes parking gates, implements mobile parking app

Georgian is implementing parking improvements at the Barrie campus to improve the customer experience. Beginning Aug. 1, all parking lot gates will be removed and the college will roll out a new licence plate recognition system.

The new system will eliminate lineups and provide a more efficient, safe, and user-friendly method to purchase hourly or daily parking passes via Honk Mobile (by phone or kiosk) or at a pay-by-plate machine.

If you don’t want to pay via your phone, there will be pay-by-plate machines and Honk Mobile kiosks in select college buildings including: the Sadlon Centre for Health, Wellness and Sciences, Automotive Business School of Canada, University Partnership Centre and the Student Life Centre.

Honk Mobile, a pay-by-phone parking app, can be used for hourly and daily parking in all the lots. The app is available for all iPhone and Android devices, as well as all internet-enabled PCs. It can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play.

Cash meters will still be available in some lots for a limited time but they will be removed during the next year. More information on parking at Georgian can be found .
