Reminders to stop your parking session

Set reminders to stop your parking session. These reminder services are free.

Maximum stay time

When you start a parking session, think about how long you need to park for and then set the maximum stay time for your parking session.

Use the slider to select your maximum stay time.

The parking session will stop when it reaches your maximum stay time.

If you want to keep parking after your maximum stay time, you can start a new session.

Parking reminder

If you have activated the parking reminder, you will receive a reminder 10 minutes before your session ends, based on the maximum stay time selected.

For example, if you set the maximum stay time to 1 hour then you will receive a reminder 10 minutes before the expiry of this 1 hour. This reminder gives you time to choose what to do - stop the session, move your car, or start a new parking session.

Transactions, invoices, negative balance and failed payments

When using AT Park, payment is made with the credit or debit card entered in your AT Park account. If payment has failed, please check your card has sufficient funds. If your card has expired, the card details will need to be updated in your AT Park account.

Payment method

Payment can only be made with the credit or debit card you enter in to your AT Park account.

Credit or debit cards we accept are MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Diners Club.

Auckland Transport does not hold money in your AT Park account.

Your registered card will only be charged for the amount required for a parking session, at the time you complete a parking session.

There are no additional fees for using your credit or debit card.

    Transaction history and invoices

    In the AT Park app

    1. Tap the menu icon
    2. Tap 'Parking History' (Android) 'History' (iPhone)
    3. A list of recent parking transactions will display
    4. Tap 'Show more' to see more transaction history

      Via the AT website

      Log in to your MyAT account to generate a tax invoice and export your transaction history. You can view transactions for each month, and filter by vehicle.

      1. Log in to your MyAT account
      2. Click ‘AT Park’ to see options
      3. Click ‘Manage account’ to go to the AT Park portal

      6. Below the list, click on the links to ‘Download invoice’ or ‘Export to excel’

      Failed payment and negative balance

      Failed payment

      If a payment fails the system will try to make the payment at the end of the day, and again after 3 and 7 days. If a failed transaction is still unpaid after 90 days, we will pass the debt to a third-party debt collector and you will be liable for any applicable fees and commission.

      A failed payment will occur when your credit or debit card has insufficient funds available or has expired, and will result in your account having a negative balance.

      Account has negative balance

      If your AT Park account has a negative balance you will not be able to start a parking session.

      To clear negative balance:

      1. Check or update credit card details - check your card has enough money to cover the negative balance, or update your card details in your AT Park account.
      2. Then attempt to start a parking session.
      3. When you attempt to start a parking session, your AT Park account will then try to connect with your card provider to pay for the negative balance.
      4. Once connected and paid, your balance should show $0.00, and you can use AT Park.

      If the attempt to start a parking session fails:

      1. Look at your account balance, it should show $0.00 if the clearance of the negative balance was successful.
      2. If the balance is still negative, wait for few seconds and then tap on the refresh symbol (above the balance), it should now show the balance $0.00.
      3. If the balance is still negative, please contact us.

      Parking charges, refunds and enforcement

      Parking charges are shown in the AT Park app, the AT website and on pay by plate machines on the street.

      If you are unable to use AT Park to pay for parking, please use one of the pay by plate machines to pay for parking.

      Cost of parking

      ​There is a minimum time for a parking session of 15 minutes.

      The cost of parking is shown when you enter the area ID to start a session in the AT Park app or via the website.

      Once you start a parking session, it will be live until you stop it, or it automatically times out in some areas.

      The system will charge your credit or debit card for the time you use, based on when you start and stop a parking session. For example, if you start a parking session and then return to your vehicle and stop your parking after 40 minutes, you will be charged for 40 minutes of parking.

      If there is a time limit, the system will automatically stop your session after the time shown on the parking sign, for example, if you park in a 2-hour zone, once you start a session, you will have up to 2 hours of parking.

      ​Graduated tariff zones

      ​In some paid parking areas, AT uses a graduated tariff to encourage short-term parking. In these graduated tariff zones, the hourly rate doubles after 2 hours, for example, $2 per hour for the first 2 hours, then $4 per hour for any hours after that.

      AT Park has been set up so you cannot stop and start parking sessions to keep parking on the cheaper rate.

      In a graduated tariff zone, if you stop a parking session and start another one (with the same Area ID) within 60 minutes, AT Park will carry on from when your last session ended. If you start another session after more than 60 minutes, then you will be charged at the cheaper rate.

      Refunds

      Refund requests are assessed on a case-by-case basis. Auckland Transport will review each refund request and respond to the customer within 10 working days. Please note that we will contact you within this time frame, this does not mean that the matter will be finalised within this time.

      If a refund is granted, refunds are credited to the credit or debit card in your AT Park account.

      To request a refund, call 09 528 7275 (7am to 10pm, 7 days) or fill in the feedback form.

      ​Enforcement

      When you use park in pay by plate areas there is no need to display a ticket on your dashboard. Parking officers use licence plate recognition to check vehicle registration plates and see parking has been paid.

      If you believe you have been issued an infringement by mistake when you paid using AT Park, use our form to query a parking fine.

      Start & stop a parking session

      When you start a parking session there is a minimum 15 minutes charged.

      Once you start a parking session, it will be active until you stop it, or it will stop at the hour when parking charges do not apply in the area you have parked.

      Area ID numbers and where to use AT Park

      AT Park can be used to pay for parking anywhere in Auckland where there are AT Park area IDs. This includes on-street paid parking areas and some off-street car parks.

      Each paid parking area has a unique 6-digit Area ID number that is used to define the location and tariff for the area. The correct Area ID number must be entered when paying for parking with AT Park.

      ​Area ID numbers can be found in the AT Park app, on pay by plate machines and parking signs.

      Find area ID numbers using the AT Park app

      1. Open the AT Park app and go to the map
      2. Zoom in to a street or car park
      3. Click on a 'P' symbol and the Area ID number, street name and tariff will be displayed.

      Using the AT Park app map

      The map in the AT Park app displays Area ID numbers, parking tariffs, and shows the location of loading zones and mobility spaces.

      You can initiate payment for your parking session from the app map. From the app menu screen, select 'Parking maps' - make sure you have Location Services enabled on your phone.
