1. How does the Parking Enforcement Officer know I’ve paid by phone?
Parking Enforcement Officers have access to a real-time list of paid vehicles and licence plate numbers at each location through a handheld device.
2. How does early payment work when using PayByPhone?
PayByPhone can be used by customers remotely and in real-time, which provides customers with the ability to pay for parking at anytime and anywhere once the paid parking period has commenced. Following all regulatory signage and restrictions, customers can still park at a location prior to the paid parking period beginning. To pay for parking using one of PayByPhone’s several payment options, customers simply note the 5 digit location number to initiate payment once the paid parking period begins.
