Pay by plate parking is an easy, paperless system that works on your vehicle’s registration number.
On average, you can park as long as you want on Parnell Road and surrounding streets from 8am – 7pm, Monday – Friday.
Rates: $2.50 per hour for first 2 hours. Then $5.00 per hour for each hour after that. Weekends and Public Holidays are free of charge.
Open: 8am – 6/7pm, Monday to Friday/Saturday. Check machine for exact days/times as they do vary.
Address: Parnell Road and surrounding streets.
Information: To pay for parking, enter your registration (licence plate) number into the parking machine and pay for the amount of time you wish to park.
The machine sends your information to Auckland Transport so you no longer need to display a paper ticket on your dashboard.
They monitor the length of time cars are parked via licence plate recognition.
You can also add time to your parking session by visiting any Pay by Plate machine within the same price zone as where your vehicle is parked. You enter the vehicle registration plate into the machine and then add the time your need.
Credit card or debit card – You can use your credit or debit card the usual way (.50c transaction fee applies) or ‘tap and go’ with a Visa payWave or Mastercard PayPass card.
Alternatively, the AT Park App is available to download from either the App Store or Google Play. This enables you to enter which parking region you wish to park in, and specify the parking duration for any license plate you have saved in the App.
Charges are made to your designated card at the conclusion of your parking.
Text-a-park will no longer be available on the upgraded parking machines.
