Midland's new "Pay-by-Plate" Parking System

In the summer of 2021, the Town of Midland implemented a new parking system for parking spaces downtown and in all municipal parking lots. The new system is a "pay-by-plate" system, meaning when you pay at the parking machine you enter your license plate number and then continue on your way or, using the mobile app, scan the QR code at the machine or on parking signs throughout municipal lots and continue on your way. No need to go back to your car to put a ticket on the dash!

Complimentary Times

Complimentary parking may be used once per day (either street parking or lot parking, not both), per license plate. Drivers will still be required to register at the parking meters. 15 minutes of parking will be complimentary for all street parking, or 1 hour of parking will be complimentary for all municipal parking lots.


25 cents/15 minutes.

Hours of Operation

Paid parking will be in effect using the following schedule:

  • Downtown streets & Municipal Lots: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday *Please note there is a 2 hour Daily Maximum for Street Parking & an 8 hour Daily Maximum for Municipal Lots*
  • Harbour Lot: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week.
  • Overnight parking remains free from April 1 to November 15.

Payment Options

The new machines offer convenient options for payment. Coins, debit (must have tap function) & credit card, Apple Pay & Google Pay will all be accepted.

ParkedinTM Mobile App

Using the mobile app customers enjoy:

  • Paying by simply scanning a QR code with their phone at the parking meter.
  • Receipt email upon successful payment.
  • Email alerts at 10 minutes left on your session.
  • A link to extend/top up the parking session from anywhere.
