Moving forward, road users will now have to pay for their parking bays in the city entirely online

The city council is also working towards including Boost and Touch 'n Go e-wallets for the convenience of users.

They, too, promised that daily and monthly passes will be rolled out when the system is upgraded.

These are the four applications and e-wallets recommended by the city council:

1. EZ Smart Park

This app is used purely to pay for parking in Kuala Lumpur. Top up the wallet and type in the number plate of your vehicle to start paying.

 It will automatically detect the location that you are at. It also lists the parking rate of all the different districts in the city if you need to check them out before you park.

2. Flexi Parking

This app covers parking areas in not only Kuala Lumpur but also Selangor, Terengganu, and Kelantan.

You can use this app to pay for parking as well as parking summonses from the city councils of these different states.
