Council Phone Parking App

Paul from Hataitai

Wellington Council has ditched the local Phone2Park app in favour of something that has more "features".
Has anyone used the new PayMyPark app?
My experience is that it all more difficult to use, doesn't allow start/stop of parking, and the new features appearing to be features on how to increase revenue for the council.
I'm interested to hear other people's experiences.

Here's what you can and can't put in soft plastic recycling bins.
