Want some perks in return for your parking patronage?
The Toronto Parking Authority, also known as Green P, is partnering with Canadian mobile retail experience company MobilexCo to pilot a location-based coupon feature in two Liberty Village parking lots.
Customers will be able to opt-in to receive discounts from 18 businesses in the area, including grocery story Metro, soccer franchise Toronto FC and restaurant Shoeless Joe’s.
After paying for parking in one of the Green P lots on their app, users will then receive a text message with a link to a mobile coupon for a local business. The coupon doesn’t require scanning at point-of-sale, rather, Green P’s demonstration video shows a somewhat cumbersome looking exchange of codes at check-out.
For those Torontonian drivers interested in testing out Green P’s new mobile feature, the two participating lots are 1155 King Street West and 34 Hanna Avenue.
