Monaco’s digital transition continues with the implementation of a parking payment app. Mayor Georges Marsan launched the operation on the morning of 22 November directly on site, on Boulevard Albert I, in the presence of local press.
The Monaco City Council now manages, through the Municipal Police, the paying service for about 1,000 parking spaces in the Principality.
