MBJB Spot Apps - Rent A Parking Space

Motorists now can rent parking spaces in areas under the Johor Baru City Council (MBJB) jurisdiction using its newly launched mobile application system.

Johor Baru mayor A. Rahim Nin said the apps called MBJB Spot, can be downloaded from Android Google Play Store, and is usable starting from May 1.

“This apps is a suitable system for those who do not wish to carry coupons for parking every where they go.

“Motorists just need to download the apps and follow the instructions provided which include registering their email address as well as their vehicle’s registration plate number,” he said during the launching of the apps at M Suite Hotel here.

Rahim said that upon downloading, users need to reload with some amount of money to its account using credit or debit card before utilising the system at the parking spaces within MBJB areas.

“This apps, which was a collaboration with Presgo Gateways Sdn Bhd Company, is designed with a user friendly feature where motorists can reload their account balance from top-up agents.

“The council has appointed some restaurants, petrol stations, book stores, mini markets, photo outlets, MBJB car park booths and others as the agents for the system,” he said, adding that the list of the top-up agents are provided in the apps.

Rahim added that apart from that, other benefits that users can enjoy include reserving parking spaces for other vehicles using their credit.

He said that the parking charge would remain the same as coupon price, RM0.40 for every 30 minutes and RM0.60 per hour.

“But motorists can still rent the parking spaces using coupons. It is the council’s responsibility to provide parking spaces to motorists in areas under our jurisdiction for smoother traffic flow in the city area,” he said.
