If you still have a SmartCard to pay for a parking space, insert the card into the parking meter and follow instructions on the meter to add time. If there is time left on the meter when you return to your vehicle, reinsert the same SmartCard in the parking meter to have the remaining time refunded back to your card. You will only pay for the time that you use.

Where can you buy or refill a SmartCard?

The option to buy or refill a SmartCard is no longer available. The City is currently phasing out its SmartCard system as we prepare to replace it with a new mobile app and on-street kiosk payment system.
