High-tech paid parking being expanded across Qatar

Many motorists will find themselves paying to park more frequently in Qatar as businesses try to discourage residents from using spaces reserved for customers for long periods of time.

But as parking lot owners roll out changes, at least one technology firm is adding new features allowing payment via mobile phone and assistance finding one’s vehicle to make the process less cumbersome.

One of the first facilities to be affected is the multi-story car park at Qatar’s general post office on the Corniche. It will introduce fees at the end of this month, according to the company installing the new system for Qatar Postal Services Company (Q-Post).
