Monday, June 23, 2014 (Halifax, NS) – Starting July 1, 2014, residents and visitors looking for an easy, self-serve option to pay a parking ticket are encouraged to visit the Halifax municipal government website at www.halifax.ca.
Residents may also call 311 to have an operator assist them with their payment. However, the pay-by-phone automated service currently offered when someone calls 490-EAZY (3299) will no longer be available as of the end of the month. This change follows suit with the industry’s move to phase out the automated technology.
To pay online, residents should go to www.halifax.ca/parkingenforcement/. This option is available only to those with a valid Visa, MasterCard or American Express credit card.
Residents can also call 311 from anywhere within the municipal boundaries or toll-free 1-800-835-6428 (in Nova Scotia only) between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m., seven days a week. This option also requires a valid credit card.
Residents will continue to have the option to pay through the mail by sending payment to the Parking Ticket Enforcement Office, P.O. Box 1749, Halifax, N.S., B3J 3A5, or in person at any of the following Citizen Contact Centres:
• Dartmouth: 40 Alderney Dr., Alderney Landing, Mezzanine Level
• Halifax: 5201 Duke St., Scotia Square, Lower Level
• Halifax: 7071 Bayers Rd., Suite 2005, Bayers Road Centre
• Lower Sackville: 636 Sackville Dr. (former Acadia School)
• Musquodoboit Harbour: 700 Highway 7 (municipal office)
If paying by mail, residents should not send cash through the mail. Please use cheques or money orders made out to the Halifax Regional Municipality and make sure to note the ticket number on the payment.
