Varna, an all time favourite Bulgarian summer resort, was facing serious problems when it comes to parking. During the summer season, Varna becomes a temporary home for over one million tourists. This leads to traffic overload and blocked city center areas that become difficult to reach, leaving insufficient parking space. The city’s management was looking for an urgent and reliable solution that could be integrated with their available payment processors and additionally provide flexible payment options. And more so, be the first step towards investment into a single MaaS program that would combine all transit options in the city and improve the overall mobility for both citizens and tourists.
