Metz gets NFC parking

NFC stickers in use in Metz

Drivers in Metz, France can now register online to get an NFC sticker that allows them to pay for their stay at a 2,100 place underground car park without a ticket or cash.

When entering and exiting the Parking République garage, the user simply holds their mobile phone, with the sticker attached to the back, in front of a reader. The system calculates the parking fee and electronically debits the customer’s prepaid account, says sticker provider Schreiner PrinTrust.
