Waterford City and County Council is implementing a new eParking app to address the demand for a more convenient, safe and environmentally friendly parking option throughout the city and county.
The new eParking App can be used for parking in any Council-run car parks and on-street parking spaces.
Mayor of Waterford City and County, Cllr. Joe Kelly welcomed the news, saying: “This new way of paying for parking will be most welcome to a large majority of Waterford people, given that a lot of us have switched to cashless methods when paying for our goods and services.”
He added, “This is a convenient way to park, and will also facilitate visitors to Waterford City and County, who may not have cash on hand to pay for parking. I would urge the public to download the App in advance, in order to make the whole process easier for the next time you come to park.”

To park your car, simply scan the QR code or download and open the App on your phone and select the ‘Park’ option. From the map or carpark list, select the location of where you wish to park, how long you want to park for, and pay from the pre-purchased credit or from your ‘wallet’ as a one off payment.
You can also add different vehicles to your mobile eParking App if you have more than one car.
The eParking system cuts down on the use of paper use and potential litter from disused pay and display tickets, so it is also better for the environment.
Users can download the free ‘Waterford eParking’ App from the App Store, Google Play or simply scan the QR Codes which have been placed at parking machines. You can also pay at www.waterfordeparking.ie or by phone at 061-311422. There are no additional charges for using this service.
