PayByPhone is making its service more accessible for users by now offering the app in Punjabi.

“With approximately 6.2% of Metro Vancouver residents identifying as Punjabi as their mother tongue, the addition of the language helps make the service more accessible across the region,” said PayByPhone in a release.

To gain access to the latest language option, drivers should download the latest version of the app and set their iOS and Android device to Punjabi.

“As part of our efforts to make our services as friendly and as accessible to all residents as possible, we are very happy to have worked with PayByPhone to add the Punjabi to their system,” said Mayor of Vancouver, Kennedy Stewart, in a statement.

“This is the fourth most common language spoken in Vancouver, and its addition is a great reflection of our uniquely diverse community.”

Earlier this year, PayByPhone added language options for traditional and simplified Chinese, and Spanish.

In July, the app upgraded to allow Vancouver drivers to park overnight at a meter until the next day.

The locally-headquartered company has served Metro Vancouver since 2001, with tens of thousands of on-street and off-street locations.
