Looking to use your smartphone to pay for parking in Boston? Thank the Mayor, who pushed a new app out the doors of city hall and launched in as a pilot in Back Bay. It was one of the Mayor’s six technology-centric initiatives announced recently. The full six tech initiatives are the following:
1. Boston drivers can now feed their meters with a mobile app.
2. Boston’s new partnership with SAP.
3. The creation of “StartHub.”
4. Leveraging big data.
5. The unveiling of a “startup czar” position.
6. New 3-1-1 upgrades.
