SHAH ALAM – The Smart Parking System (SSP) application can now be used for parking payment at the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) area, said the Local Government, Public Transport and New Village Development EXCO, Ng Sze Han.
According to Sze Han, the free downloadable application allows users to make quick payments using credits that can be added from local banking (e-wallet).
He said besides CHKL, it is available in seven other Selangor Local Authority (PBT) areas, namely Petaling Jaya City Council, Shah Alam City Council, Subang Jaya Municipal Council, Kajang Municipal Council, Selayang Municipal Council and Sepang Municipal Council.
“In addition, the SSP can also be used at off-street parking at Paramount Light Rail Transit (LRT), Asia Jaya, Kelana Jaya Stadium and Atria Traders Stations,” he said.
“The implementation of this SSP has also saved the use of parking vouchers of 180 tonnes of paper,” he added.
He said this after the Honorable Council of PBT for outstanding achievement in SPB-PBT, SUK on 9 July.
At the same time, Sze Han said to further promote the use of SSP, the state government offered a special promotion for a month from 9 July to 9 August.
“This promotion involves RM 1 additional credit granted to every purchase of credit of RM 50 to RM 99 credit,” he said.
“While RM 3 additional credit will be given for every purchase of RM 100 to RM 199 credit,” he said.
Additionally, he said an additional RM 6 was also credited to the purchase of RM 200 to RM 299, additional RM 9 for the purchase of RM 300 to RM 399 and an additional RM 12 for the purchase of RM 400 to RM 499.
The SSP was introduced in July 2018 in line with Selangor’s vision towards Smart State 2025.
The parking rate and compound charges charged by the SSP are based on existing rates as stipulated by the Local Authorities that participate in the SSP implementation.
