Paying for parking
The parking charge may be paid via the mobile or buying a parking ticket from a parking meter, or a monthly pass.
Parking using a mobile phone
To use smart parking, you need to have an iPhone or Android phone, to which the free of charge parking application has been downloaded.
To start parking, an SMS has to be sent to the speed dial number 1902.
In the SMS body, write the registration number of the vehicle and the designation of the parking zone (for example, 123ABC CITY CENTRE). A space should be left between the car registration number and the designation of the parking zone. A confirmation message will be sent about the confirmation of the parking ticket.
To stop parking, call the speed dial number 1903.
When using a parking meter, first select the parking zone and then insert the money into the meter. If money is inserted into the meter without selecting a parking zone, the meter itself by default will select the zone where the meter is located. After money has been inserted, the meter will indicate the time point until which parking has been paid for. The first 15 minutes of parking are free of charge, included automatically on the parking ticket issued.
Parking meters accept 10, 20 and 50 cent and 1 and 2 euro coins, with some meters accepting also 5, 10, 20 and 50 euro notes. Meters are provided with instructions in Estonian, Russian and English.
