Parking Infrastructure Improvement Project
Three ways to pay!
HotSpot mobile app
A free download for iPhone and Android users, the HotSpot app is the easiest way to manage daily parking sessions and monthly permits.
Fast tap signs
Located throughout the downtown parking areas, fast tap signs allow payment through the HotSpot website with a quick scan code. You don’t need a HotSpot account to use the fast tap signs.
If you prefer not to use an app or website, 21 new pay stations will be available throughout downtown and hospital zones. Pay stations offer several payment options, including coins, credit cards, Interac tap, Apple Pay and Google Pay. SmartCard parking cards will also be accepted at the pay stations, but are no longer able to be reloaded and are no longer being sold. Pay stations are expected to be up and running in early October. Until they arrive, customers are encouraged to use the app and fast tap signs to pay for parking.
HotSpot app features By using the HotSpot mobile app to manage your parking, you can:
- Pay for parking
- Extend parking sessions
- Avoid tickets with auto-alerts
- Refund unused time
- Manage your monthly parking permit
