People parking in certain Blenheim CBD areas will be able to use the PayMyPark parking app from the end of June.
With the PayMyPark parking app you will be able to pay for your parking from your smartphone and extend your time remotely. No more searching for coins, no receipt needed and pay only for your actual parking time.
You can choose to have a PayMyPark account, or be a casual user. If you set up an account, you can use the start-stop function only paying for exact parking used. You also keep your fees to a minimum as you only pay when you transfer money to your account.
If you opt to use PayMyPark as a casual user, you pay a 50 cent fee on each transaction.
A full list of fees charged by PayMyPark can be found on their website under PayMyPark Help.
Businesses can set up one account with vehicle registration numbers and all staff use the same account for easy accounting. If staff don’t have a smartphone, you can pay for parking from the office using the PayMyPark website.
