Tips for using PayMyPark

When you use the app to pay for parking, make sure you choose HCC  in the app. If you accidentally pay for parking outside of HCC, you will get a parking ticket.

Receipts

Parking receipts are now paperless.

The parking meter will ask you if you would like a receipt, if you select YES it will display a four-digit code and the eReceipt website you can download it from.

You can choose to register your email address so that all future receipts and transaction details for that vehicle plate number will be sent to your email address. You'll need to use a four-digit receipt code from a parking session when you set this up.

Note: If you don't get your four-digit code, you can email us to ask for a copy of the receipt. You'll need to tell us:

  • your car registration
  • the street you were parked on
  • the time you parked at
  • your name and email.

Pay By Plate

Pay By Plate parking is a paperless system that works by using your vehicle's licence plate number to record your parking time and payment.

To pay for parking, simply enter your vehicle's licence plate number and pay for the amount of time you want to park. You won't receive a paper ticket, so you don't need to go back to your car once you've paid.

Our parking officers will use your licence plate number to confirm that your vehicle has a valid parking session.
