Renew parking through your mobile phone

'Extend-by-phone' is a feature that will remind you when your parking is about to expire and allow you to extend your parking through your mobile phone. In order to use this feature, look for the 'extend-by-phone' marking on the parking meter. Once you have successfully paid for parking with a credit card, the parking meter will prompt you to enter your mobile phone number. This phone number will receive a text message when parking is about to expire and offer an option to add additional time. For more information on this feature, watch this video or visit the extend-by-phone website.
