HAMILTON, ON - Starting today, it just got easier to pay for parking in Hamilton. Following Council direction and with input from the City’s Business Improvement Areas, the new “pay-by-phone” parking app allows you to pay, track and extend your parking anytime, on all on-street parking meters and Municipal parking lots in Hamilton right from your smartphone. Simply download the new Passport Parking App from the Apple Store or Google Play Store to create your account. Park anywhere you see the Passport Parking App sign, enter the zone number, track or add time to your parking directly from your smartphone.
Payment by coin at meters and coin/credit card in off-street lots will remain available. The mobile payment application is being provided by Passport Labs Incorporated (Passport). Passport provides similar applications for several cities, including Kitchener, Windsor, and Toronto, and was selected through a procurement process.
Also beginning today, as approved by Council through the 2020 budget process, parking fees for on-street meter rates will increase from $1.50 per hour to $2 per hour. In addition, the temporary 30-minute free on-street parking will be removed, and enforcement of all meters will return to normal operations.
