MBTA to use pay-by-phone service at select stations

Posted on December 12, 2008

The Massachussets Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) announced plans to introduce a pilot program allowing customers to pay by phone for parking at all stations along selected commuter rail line and boat lots. 

The cash-less method will be available for users of the Kingston commuter rail line and commuter boat lots in Quincy and Hingham.  To pay for daily parking, customers will be able to create an account using their mobile phone number and a credit/debit card, and have their parking fee automatically deducted from their account.  

The MBTA has partnered with Vancouver-based Verrus Mobile Technologies to provide the mobile payment service.  

Upon creating a free pay by phone account, customers call the toll free number from their mobile phone, key in the location and parking numbers, and the parking fee is charged to their credit/debit card. 

Verrus Pay by Phone Parking is the first automated payment option to be introduced into the MBTA’s commuter rail and commuter boat parking network.
