Our Favourite

Personally, our favourite choice among the above mentioned 5 mobile apps when the sole purpose is to pay for street parking is Flexiparking. The reasons are:

  • The interface of the mobile app is easy to understand albeit relatively less “pretty” than the others (besides Wilayah Parking that shares the same user interface).
  • Covers more area – so we don’t need a separate application when we are at different districts.
  • Able to reload our account via other e-wallet such as Boost, Touch ‘n Go & GrabPay.
  • Added bonus for being able to pay for parking summons – good to have but you would wish that you won’t need to.
