Integrated Parking System

The City of Hobart is rolling out new customer-friendly meters that allows you to pay by credit/debit card, coins, and mobile phone app.

These new machines will replace the current parking meters and voucher machines on the existing locations in the city centre, Salamanca Place, Dunn Place, Condell Place and Lefroy Street car parks.  Voucher machines on the Domain and Regatta Ground area will not be replaced.

Features of the new system

Pay-By-Phone

A free app will become available for Android, Apple and Windows users to pay for their parking, once the new system is operational.
This allows people to pay without having to go to the parking meter and to top up parking before they return. The app also sends expiry reminders to help people avoid fines.

Credit card

You will be able to use a credit or debit card on all new meters across the city centre. The minimum credit card transaction will be $3.

Coins

Coin payment will be available on all meters

Vehicle detection sensors

New in-ground sensors will be installed to support mobile phone payment system and provide the City with information regarding parking usage to help with future planning.

Bay numbers

The new system means we will move from single digit numbers to 3–4 digit numbers so every parking bay has a unique number. The new numbers will be on the kerb instead of the footpath.
