Paying for parking

Tauranga parking machines are paperless so they won’t issue you a ticket to display on your dashboard. You will need to enter the licence number for your vehicle at the parking machine, then pay for your parking as usual.

You can pay for your parking with:
  • Coins
  • Debit card (including paywave)
  • Text-a-park (cost of parking is paid for using your phone’s credit)

Alternatively, you can use: 

How to get an electronic parking receipt

When you complete your parking transaction using the paperless machines, you will be asked if you want an e-receipt. If you select 'yes' you will be given an e-receipt code. Take note of the code. To receive your receipt enter the e-receipt code and your licence plate number at my-receipt.com

The first time you do this, you can choose to register your email address so that all future receipts and transaction details for that plate number will be sent to your email address. You must still select ‘yes’ at the machine when asked if you would like an e-receipt.
