The ParkMate smartphone app for parking payments, along with a range of other features such as finding a car park space, is now available at all Whanganui District Council-operated car parks in Whanganui’s CBD.
Previously only available in Drew’s Avenue / Taupo Quay and the council’s off-street parking areas, the ParkMate app compliments the ParkEasy payment portal that was introduced when the council upgraded all of Whanganui’s parking meters in early 2022.
All CBD parking meters now display a QR code and site code for downloading and using the ParkMate app. The ParkMate app can also be downloaded for free from the App Store or Google Play.
