Pay by phone
First, set up your account. Visit the PayByPhone website or phone 604-909-PARK (604-909-7275).
Provide the following information:
- Cell phone number
- Credit card number (Visa or MasterCard)
- Licence plate number
After you're set up, you can pay by phone at 604-909-PARK (604-909-7275).
Ensure you select the correct licence plate
When you pay by phone, the licence plate for your payment must match the licence plate for your vehicle in the parking space. If they don't match, you can be ticketed.
Verify your licence plate before you confirm your payment.
