Get smart paying parking

The Gore District Council is the first in Southland to offer a smarter and more efficient way to pay for parking.

The PayMyPark app is now available for all metered parking in Gore.

“PayMyPark is a really convenient and flexible way to pay for parking.

“You’ll no longer need to hunt for coins. And your smartphone will alert you when the meter runs out, or you can extend your parking if you’re running late,” says the Council’s chief financial officer, Luke Blackbeard.

So how does it work?

You can download the free app on your iPhone or android smartphone, or access PayMyPark via its website.

Create an account and load money into it, or be a casual user and pay as you go. Payment using the app also includes a small convenience fee.

Gore’s meters now display a meter number on a white label. It’s this number that you enter in your PayMyPark app when you use a park.

But how does the Council know you’ve paid via PayMyPark? The parking warden can check in the system and see.

For more information go to the PayMyPark page on the Council’s website.
