You can now view Halifax on-street parking availability in real-time on the web

Beginning today, the Halifax Regional Municipality’s on-street parking payment service provider, HotSpot, will roll out a new real-time web and mobile application map that will allow drivers to plan ahead for on-street parking options.

The real-time map will help drivers plan their trip by identifying potentially available on-street paid parking locations before they begin their trip, making it easier to get to where they’re going. Rather than displaying individual spots, the map will display parking availability by total number within a paid parking zone. The map can be accessed through the HotSpot app, or by visiting the website.

HotSpot is a payment service provider for on-street parking in Halifax Regional Municipality. It allows users to pay for parking using their smartphone or by calling a toll-free number. The service also allows users to extend their parking time remotely, up to the maximum time limit for the parking spot. HotSpot provides real-time data to parking enforcement officers, allowing them to monitor the occupancy of parking spots and ensure compliance with parking regulations. The use of HotSpot is intended to make parking more convenient for users, while also improving parking enforcement and reducing the likelihood of parking violations.
