The initiative according to the state government, is to facilitate a seamless parking experience across the metropolis.

Revealing this development at a meeting held between the Lagos State Parking Authority and ARCA Payment Ltd., the General Manager of LASPA, Mrs. Adebisi Adelabu stated that the partnership is to improve the overall parking system by ensuring a seamless transaction process for permits, registration and enquiry among others.

According to her, “This is a commitment towards integrating technological solutions into the Authority’s parking management system, which will provide a user-friendly system whilst building an accurate database to manage parking proceedings for the State”.

She noted that the Authority has adopted innovative ways of providing lasting solutions to parking challenges for a safe and secure environment, adding that the ultimate aim is to give Lagosians the best and most suitable parking experience.

Mrs. Adelabu explained further that the initiative guarantees a stress-free process for end users of the Authority’s services, emphasising its effect on reconciliation and revenue assurance for the government.

The General Manager noted that the Authority has been committed to supporting various organisations and business entities to identify and proffer long-term solutions to their parking challenges as it has observed that most organisations operating in the State lack adequate parking space, which contributes to indiscriminate parking.,

While describing the various interventions introduced to reduce indiscriminate parking across the State, she averred that the government has commenced the installation of signages and lane markings in phases across the State to guide motorists and pedestrians on available parking lots.

Mrs. Adelabu urged the public to support the Authority’s efforts towards improving the parking system of the State, noting that enforcement of parking regulations has significantly reduced road mishaps and traffic congestion across the metropolis.

Earlier in his remarks, the MD/CEO ARCAPayment Ltd, Mr. Oluwadare Owolabi appreciated the government’s role in regulating parking across the State in line with the smart city drive, adding that the integration of the application solution to manage parking proceedings will further promote effective customer service, accountability and transparency for all organisations and business entities.

Mr. Owolabi also unveiled plans to commence intensive training for staff of the Authority on how to navigate through the application software, opining that all efforts are geared towards providing a smooth, quick and result-oriented process for the public to access parking services.
