Austin residents and visitors have a new option to pay for parking


Drivers in Austin will have one more option available to pay for on-street parking starting today. 

The Way.com app allows users to search for nearby parking by entering their city or location. Thenthe user enters their parking space number (or license plate number, depending on the location), vehicle information and length of stay. Users can also manage and extend their parking sessions and access parking history and receipts.

Way.com users have previously been able to use the app for off-street parking and now can access on-street parking as well. 

In 2020, Austin partnered with Google to offer drivers the opportunity to pay for their parking through the Google Maps app. That pilot program has since ended. 

These initiatives are part of Austin's efforts to make paying for on-street parking as easy and convenient as possible. The Park ATX app allows users to manage their parking sessions remotely and offers two 15-minute free parking sessions every 24 hours by using codes "FREE15ATX1" and "FREE15ATX2."
