City of Saint John now offering QR code parking payment options at 25 locations in the City

After a successful trial of the QR code payment method at several parking spaces on King Street in March 2022, City of Saint John Parking is now offering the QR code payment option at 25 locations uptown.

The new locations were chosen strategically to ensure a variety of payment methods are still available to the customer at each location. Parking meters that have typically required frequent maintenance have been removed and QR code signs have been installed in close proximity to the standard paid parking meters so that drivers have multiple payment options available to them.

“We’re pleased to see that the program was received well by the community and has been a success with positive uptake,” says Jillian Good, Operations Manager of Parking. “We look forward to expanding the service to make parking easier and more accessible for residents and visitors to Saint John.”

The City continues to work towards modernizing parking infrastructure and reducing costs associated with maintenance, upgrades and repairs.

In order to ensure the City is making parking payment options as user-friendly to customers as possible, we will be tracking these new locations for frequency of use. This data will help determine if more QR code payment options should be added in the future.
