How to use PayMyPark
If you don't have a compatible mobile device, you can pay for parking using the PayMyPark website
The app / service can be used with an account you setup or you can use it casually, and only pay for the parking time you use.
Casual users get charged a fee on each transaction, while those with accounts only pay a transaction fee when topping up their account balance. So it is recommended accounts are used unless you're just passing through.
All transaction fees are paid to the app provider and not to Timaru District Council. Otherwise the normal parking charges, times and other conditions apply as with regular pay and display parking and meters.
To use the app you need to register your vehicle within the app.
