  • A Grid B Otakaari 5 = area code 541  
  • A Grid C Otakaari 7 = area code 542

Short time parking with ParkMan app

You can also pay the parking with the ParkMan app. Find the ParkMan app from your phone’s app store and follow the steps to complete the sign-up by adding your personal information and credit card details for billing.

When you are in your desired parking location, the app will locate you with GPS. You can manually adjust the location if needed. Tap “Park here.” You will then be asked to choose the parking duration and vehicle.

When you return to your car, open the app and tap “Stop parking.” The running payment has ended when a receipt of the parking appears on your screen.
