HotSpot Parking

The HotSpot Parking App is available in Downtown Halifax for all on-street parking and in the Waterfront pay-and-display parking lots. HotSpot gives drivers more convenience when parking by:

  • Notifying users when their meter is close to expiring
  • Giving users the option to add more time up to the maximum for the space
  • Giving users the option to cancel their session early and be refunded for any unused time

HotSpot works with the on-street parking pay stations in Downtown Halifax. Download the app to your phone. You will need your license plate and Zone letter or parking lot number to initiate a parking session. 

Additional Information:

  • If you receive a parking ticket, paper tickets will still be issued, not through the mobile app.
  • You do not have to use the mobile app in order to pay, standard methods of payment for parking remain unchanged.
  • On-street parking is in operation Monday through Friday, between 8 am and 6 pm. On-street parking is free on weekends, holidays and after designated time restrictions listed on the pay station. HotSpot will not process payment during these times.
