“I forgot to put parking coupons!”
“I ran out of parking coupons!”
“I tore the wrong tab on the parking coupon!”

If these are familiar utterances, chances are you are among those who park at the public car parks without electronic parking systems (EPS). So you will be pleased to know that there is now a hassle-free alternative!

Use the app instead of coupons for a lot more convenience

HDB, URA, and GovTech have worked together to launch a new parking app – ‘Parking.sg’, as a convenient alternative to paper parking coupons.

How to use

Using the app is simple. All you have to do is to select the car park and indicate the parking duration (30-minutes block), and click proceed to start parking. You can even start a parking session on behalf of your family members or friends.

For a first-time user, you will need to enter your vehicle and credit card number, which will be saved for future parking sessions.

If you are unsure of the car park code, you can refer to the main signboard at the car park entrances.

Refer to the new white signboards for the car park code

The car park code is also painted on the driveway in HDB car parks

You can easily manage your parking session by choosing to end it early or extending it further through the app.


You will be charged for your parking on a per minute basis, which means you pay for the exact parking time, and no more. If you ended your parking session earlier than the 30-minutes block had set, you will only pay for the duration that you parked.

You can also extend the session remotely, using the app!

The app will remind you twice, 10 minutes and 5 minutes, before your parking session expires – a thoughtful alert for those who are prone to forget.

Get reminders of your parking session through your smart phone…

…and smart watch too!

As a start, the ‘Parking.sg’ app can only be used for cars. It will be extended to motorcycles and heavy vehicles by the end of the year. However, if you prefer to use parking coupons, you may continue to do so.

Interested in a seamless parking experience – why not download the app on your smart phone.
