EasyPark Makes Paying for Parking Easy
EasyPark is a convenient way to pay for parking in downtown Portsmouth. Rather than digging for change, fidgeting with credit card meters or walking back and forth to buy and display a parking receipt from a Pay and Display machine, just choose your city (Portsmouth, Dover and Manchester are currently participating in the program), choose your zone and start the clock. When you get back to your vehicle, just turn the device off; you only pay for the time you actually use.
The devices are programmed to know when free holiday parking is in force, when enforcement starts and when it stops each day. For example, if you come into town before enforcement begins and activate the device, the unit will stay in standby and not begin counting down from the maximum allowable time in that location until the clock reaches enforcement time. Alternatively, if you activate a parking session shortly before enforcement ends, the device will enter standby mode and stop counting until enforcement begins again the next day.
