GoTucson Parking FAQ
How do I use the GoTucson Parking app to pay with my phone?
Download the GoTucson Parking app from the App Store or Google Play. A web version is also available at gotucsonparking.com. Please note: your wireless carrier’s message and data rates may apply.
What is the zone number / how do I find it?
The zone number is required to start your parking session and identifies where you are parked. You can find the zone number located on signs and decals on the side of each meter where the app is available.
How do I know my parking session has started?
When using the application, you will know your parking session has successfully started once you see the Parking Session screen with a session countdown and expiration time as well as other Transaction Details.
Why doesn’t the meter change / how does enforcement know I paid?
Transactions made with the app are instantly available to parking enforcement personnel through their wireless handheld devices. The meters do not change because they are not able to sync in real time.
Can I move spaces while I have an active session?
You cannot change a space number or update your license plate once a session is started. If a session has been started in the incorrect space or have you selected the wrong vehicle, please start a new session with the correct information and then contact support to void the one made in error. Questions regarding parking rules for a specific location should be directed to Park Tucson (www.tucsonaz.gov/park-tucson).
How do I manage alerts/reminders?
From ‘My Account’, go to the ‘Settings’ page. Use the checkboxes to enable or disable the reminders. If your phone is not silenced, you’ll also be alerted with the system notification tone.
How do I view my parking history/get receipts?

How do I fund a wallet?
To fund a wallet, you must initiate your first parking session. You will have the option to load the wallet during the payment selection step.
Can I use pre-tax benefit cards from my employer?

Whether you commute via train, rail, bus or park near your work – we make it easy for you to pay on the go using pre-tax dollars. Available in select locations.
Can I pay for other people’s parking?
Just as you would do with your own space or vehicle information, you can pay for another person’s parking with the app. Enter the zone, followed by the respective space or the license plate number parked in the location. Thanks for being generous!

Why won’t the app let me extend my time?
If you can’t extend your time it could be because you have already reached the maximum stay allowed by the parking operator. You may no longer be eligible to park in that zone, or you may need to start a new session, depending upon the rules set by the parking operator.
Why can’t I reset my PIN?
If you received an error stating that your PIN could not be reset, we need to manually verify additional information on your account. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
