Monaco continues its digital transition with the implementation of online payment for surface parking.
Mayor Georges Marsan launched the operation at Boulevard Albert I on November 22, in the presence of the local press.
Monaco City Council manages, with the Municipal Police, about 1000 parking places in the Principality.
Motorists can now download the PayByPhone app to their phone, to pay for parking directly online.
The PayByPhone app is recognnised worldwide and it is number one in Europe for mobile parking payment, with a presence in eight countries and more than 500 cities.
The service is used by more than 14 million people. In just a few clicks, it is possible to select the parking zone and duration, then validate the payment – with the option to use the “extend” functions (without exceeding the maximum parking time depending on the zone to promote vehicle rotation) or “interrupt” and adjust the time remotely to pay only the time actually used.
France has said that night clubs will be able to reopen in July, leaving club owners delighted but also concerned about what kind of rules will need to be implemented.
The YCM will host June's Festival of the Sea in honour of the patron saint of fishermen, Saint Peter, however the event will be scaled back this year due to health restrictions.
A new public use facility called A Fabrica has been inaugurated in the heart of Princess Antoinette Park, a space made possible by the generosity of two local donors.
Masks will no longer be mandatory in Monaco from Saturday, with the exception of a few tourist hotspots like Casino Square.
