The HotSpot Parking app is available for our Halifax waterfront parkers. Stickers are on our meters and the main Pay By Plate signs on Lower Water St. to let parkers know we offer this mobile convenience. (Please note we are offering free parking in our Pay By Plate lots Saturdays and Sundays in December. Waterfront meters are free after 6pm through the week, and 24 hours on weekends. The app will not process payments during these times, even if the user tries to make a payment.)
The City of Halifax is rolling out the HotSpot app for all of their meters. Read more here.
Quick Points For Waterfront Users:
Standard methods to purchase parking remain; there is no obligation to download or use the app once available.
