Here’s how to use Nelson’s new Pay-by-Plate parking meters!!!
Nelson’s new Pay-by-Plate meters went live at 8am today (29 June), ending paper waste from tickets, while offering Nelsonians more ways to pay and more convenient ways to extend their parking.
The new meters will allow people to pay using coins, payWave and a new app called PayMyPark. In the first few days of the meters being available for use, Council’s parking enforcement wardens will play an educational role, ensuring people avoid making mistakes, and take a more lenient approach to payment related infringements.
With no requirement for a paper ticket, there is no longer any need to return to your car once you have paid. Ratepayers will also save more than $100k in paper and maintenance costs per year.
