How to Pay for Parking on the Streets

❶ Parking Meters

Near pay parking spaces, parking meters allow you to pay with your credit card or with change.

❷ Presto Park

Mobile app “Presto Park” (only available in French at this time) allows you to pay your parking from your smartphone. No need for change or ticket anymore. You can entend the duration wherever you are, or stop it before the hour is over, to pay the actual duration.

Start by downloading the free mobile app Presto Park:

Manage your account, from the app or Presto Park website, by register your email address, plate number and credit card number to bill. Your Presto Park account is then immediately operational. Note that you can register multiple cars on one account.

❸ “Piaf” (Personal Parking Meter)

Piaf is a small personal electronic parking meter, that replace your tickets. After having credited it from the website or at Stationeo offices, you start and stop the clock yourself when parking, so you can pay only the actual duration.

You can get your Piaf Device at Stationeo offices (2 avenue Gambetta). For 25 €, vous get it with that much credit. Then, reloads are possible, at 20 € or 40 €.

It’s easy to load credits on your Piaf from home, via the dedicated “Mon Piaf” website, or at Stationeo offices (2 avenue Gambetta).

Once your vehicule is parked, select the area on your Piaf. Only the actual duration of your parking will be billed.

For a very short parking, Piaf allows you to have the first 20 minutes for free, one time a day.
