Council says ‘aye’ to PSP operating hours


THE Penang Island City Council (MBPP) has agreed to the proposal to standardise the Penang Smart Parking (PSP) operating hours in Penang.


MBPP financial management committee alternate chairman Gooi Seong Kin said the committee in a meeting on Oct 10, has agreed with the proposal.


“The operating hours are from 8am to 6pm (except Sundays and public holidays).


“The current MBPP parking coupons will be sold until Dec 31 this year (2019) and are valid until Dec 31 next year (2020),” he said in his speech during the MBPP meeting at City Hall today.


On another matter, Gooi said that PSP e-Coupon agents must comply with the conditions imposed.


“The agents must be registered with the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM),” he said.


The council said that at present, there were six e-Coupon agents – MBPP, 7-Eleven, Happy Mart, Jefesson, Yang Agency, and PH Ocean.


The PSP system in Penang will be managed by HeiTech Padu Berhad.


It was reported that non-smartphone users or smartphone users without Internet data could pay their PSP fees using the e-Coupons.
