The City of Rimouski is proud to announce the entry into service of the 20 new parking meters per license plate downtown. Payment can be made directly at the parking meter or through the RikiP $ mobile application.
“We are excited to see the new technology take hold downtown! Modernization of parking is long overdue in the heart of our city. Around 170 traditional parking meters are being replaced by plate-type parking meters which are now ready for use. The revitalization of the downtown area has been a priority for the city council for several years and the arrival of these new devices is perfectly in line with this trend. “
Marc Parent, maire
Parking meters by license plate
The new technology is simple, flexible and secure. All users need to do is enter their license plate number, choose their usage time and proceed to payment. This can be done directly at the parking meter by credit, debit, cash card or by downloading the RikiP $ app.
By using license plate parking meters or the mobile app, users pay for pay for their parking time, not for a parking space. Thus, it is now possible to move your car within the paid zone in the city center, without having to pay again. Users just need to make sure they don’t exceed the usage time they paid for directly at the meter or with the mobile app.
By paying at the parking meter or using the RikiP $ app, you get the first 15 minutes of free parking!
RikiP $ mobile application
With the RikiP $ app, you can pay for your parking right from your smartphone, no matter where you are!
Take advantage of several advantages:
- Save time;
- Receive alerts before your payment is due;
- Extend your parking;
- View your account information in real time!
Traditional parking meters
Several traditional parking meters remain in place pending their replacement in a future phase. Although there is no parking meter per plate in areas with traditional parking meters, it is still possible to benefit from the new technology using the RikiP $ application. If you pay with the mobile app, you don’t need to put change in the parking meter.
In the coming weeks, City of Rimouski employees will be crisscrossing the downtown area to help people who need it in the wake of the installation of parking meters.
