The Lagos State Government has taken a significant step towards improving the overall parking system in the metropolis through a partnership with ARCA Payment Ltd. The partnership aims to develop a parking payment application that will enhance coordinated parking operations and provide a seamless transaction process for permits, registration, inquiries, and more.
The General Manager of the Lagos State Parking Authority (LASPA), Mrs Adebisi Adelabu, revealed this development at a partnership meeting between LASPA and ARCA Payment Ltd. 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 while building an accurate database to manage parking proceedings for the state.
Adelabu noted that the authority had adopted innovative ways of providing lasting solutions to parking challenges for a safe and secure environment. The ultimate aim of the initiative is to give Lagosian the best and most suitable parking experience while ensuring a stress-free process for end-users of the authority’s services.
She emphasized the effect of this initiative on reconciliation and revenue assurance for the government, as the authority works towards a stress-free process for end-users of their services.
The LASPA general manager also highlighted the authority’s commitment to supporting various organizations and business entities to identify and proffer long-term solutions to their parking challenges. She observed that most organizations operating in the state lack adequate parking space, which contributes to indiscriminate parking.
The government has already commenced the installation of signage and lane markings in phases across the state to guide motorists and pedestrians on available parking lots. These interventions are part of the government’s efforts to reduce indiscriminate parking across the state.
Adelabu urged the public to support LASPA’s efforts towards improving the parking system of the state. She noted that enforcement of parking regulations had significantly reduced road mishaps and traffic congestion across the metropolis.
In conclusion, the partnership between LASPA and ARCA Payment Ltd. is a significant step towards improving the overall parking system in Lagos. This initiative will provide a user-friendly system while building an accurate database to manage parking proceedings for the state, resulting in a stress-free process for end-users of the authority’s services. The public is urged to support LASPA’s efforts towards improving the parking system of the state, which will ultimately lead to a safe and secured environment for all Lagosian.
