Council would like to remind shoppers in the Shepparton central business district that complimentary car parking in Council-owned parking spaces finishes on 31 January 2020.
From Monday 3 February you will have to pay for parking again and infringements will be issued if you don’t pay or you stay longer than the time displayed on the signs. If you want to stay in the CBD for a longer time than on the sign you should park in an all-day space, or move your car to a new zone before the time limit expires.
The PayStay app is the easiest and most efficient way to pay for parking in Shepparton. You only pay for the time you use and you don’t have to look for coins. For example, instead of using a $1 coin to pay for 15 minutes you may only pay $0.37 which is cheaper than a fine if you don’t pay.
PayStay is really simple to use. Download the app to your smart phone and make sure you activate payment before you leave your vehicle. The app can locate the zone you are in. Once you have located the zone and selected the registration for the vehicle you are in, press ‘next’ and confirm you want to start parking. When you return to your car, press the red ‘stop parking’ on the PayStay app.
The app can also show you where parking is located. If you select ‘map’ you can see where the parking is, how many bays there are and how long you can park for. You can also add other vehicles to your account and check your history.
You do not have to pay for parking in council carparks on Saturdays and Sunday but time limits apply.
