Drivers can use the Park’nPay app to pay for metered parking and receive notifications when their meter is running low or their parking space is about to turn into a no stopping zone.
When a meter is about to expire, the account can be topped up through the app, without the driver having to return to their car.
Drivers will have a 10-minute grace period for not getting fined after paying for at least one hour of parking.
How to use Park’nPay:
- download the free Park’nPay app
- create an account with the car’s licence plate number
- add payment details.
Payments can be made with Visa, Mastercard, Apple Pay or Google Pay. Parking meters will continue to accept coins.
Parking inspectors will check to see if a meter has been paid by searching the licence plate using an app on their phone.
Park’nPay is currently available in The Rocks, Liverpool Council and parts of Darling Harbour and Pyrmont and will be expanded to more areas in late 2019 and early 2020.
