Google Maps and Waze enable users to pay for parking and gas

Google Maps recently announced that its users can now pay for street parking and public transit fares without ever leaving the app. Through an integration with parking payment apps Passport and ParkMobile, Google has imported specific parking rates and policies into the Google Pay app experience. This means that as long as users have a Google Pay account linked to a debit or credit card, they can pay for parking at any Passport or ParkMobile location without having to download either of these apps.

The feature is available at parking meters in more than 400 cities across the U.S., with plans to launch over 100 new locations this month. For payments, users can set up any method available in the Google Pay app, but it must be accepted by the individual parking provider. “If a city does not accept American Express for parking payment, the user would have to switch to Visa or Mastercard within the Google Pay app to make a payment at that location. The ParkMobile app works in a similar way,” explained Jeff Perkins, CMO and head of product at ParkMobile.
