Nothing puts a damper on an exciting local adventure more than dropping a small fortune into the parking meter when you arrive. Luckily, we have a great way to save on parking!

For just $2 – $3 per day, you can pay for parking with the PayByPhone app when you park your car at one of TransLink’s nine Park and Ride lots around the region. Park and Ride lots make it easier for those located outside major transit hubs to easily connect to our integrated network of bus, SkyTrain, SeaBus and West Coast Express. Download the PayByPhone parking app from the iOS App Store, Google Play Store, or by visiting and you’re on your way to save.

The PayByPhone app offers 24/7 customer support, mobile and web payment options in multiple languages, access via the app, website, phone, Amazon Echo Auto, and Siri shortcuts, and the ability to pay for consecutive, multi-day parking.
