Edmonton launches new e-parking service

A new E-Parking service is being implemented in the City of Edmonton, with the service launching on Monday.

According to the city, this new system will make paying for parking simpler and faster, with parking management now being taken over by HotSpot Parking.

This new system will have some new features, such as not requiring a minimum balance, and instead paying as you go. There will also be digital permits, instead of physical hang tags.

There are several ways to pay, from using coins or card at the machine, to scan a QR code, or through the HotSpot app, which will be launching in May.

EPark, the previous managers of Edmonton’s parking, will still have pay machines throughout the city as they get replaced with HotSpot machines.

Although EPark has been disabled, anyone with a balance of $25 or more will have these funds moved to a HotSpot account. For those with less than $25, they will be issued a refund.

Refunds are available on the City of Edmonton website, with the city adding that this new system comes with no extra costs.

HotSpot is used in about 150 cities worldwide, with most of them being located in Canada.
