Invitation to join "Smart Parking Mobile App" scheme

As part of the Smart City initiative in Kowloon East, we are developing a Smart Parking Mobile App to facilitate drivers to find vacant parking spaces in this area with a view to reducing the traffic congestion and pollution. We anticipate that the Mobile App will be launched around end 2016.

We are now inviting the carpark owners or operators in Kowloon East to join our scheme to provide information on their carpark including real-time parking vacancy data.
