Introducing Text to Park

It’s easier than parallel parking – We promise! (And faster too)


Simply text the zone number to “30202”. The zone number is in easy sight from where you parked either on a sign, or on the kiosk. You will receive a short link via SMS to start your session. It’s as easy as 1- 2- 3!

Open the link on your mobile phone:

  1. Enter your plate number, select your duration,
  2. Pay for your parking,
  3. Start your paid parking session.
