From 1 January 2019, the City of Newcastle will reduce the hourly cost of on street parking by 25 per cent for users of its pay-by-phone parking app, in preperation for Australian first technology that guides drivers to vacant parking spaces. The reduced rate will be available on a trial for the remainder of the financial year.
The discount will automatically apply to the EasyPark app, which allows drivers to pay only for the time they use and remotely top up payments after receiving SMS notifications 15 minutes before their meter expires.
As part of the EasyPark revolution, the free 15 minute paper ticket will also go digital. See http://www.newcastle.nsw.gov.au/Living/Transport/Parking/Ticket-parking
for more information on the free 15 minute parking incentive.
Here are the steps to get started:
- Download the EasyPark app from the AppStore or Google play
- Login and follow the instructions on the screen
- Enter the area code which is available on the parking meter
- Spin, set the time and enjoy the rest of your day!
