Hot Spot Parking
Press Releases

(Tiny, Ontario) The Township of Tiny is pleased to partner with HotSpot for the launch of its new mobile payment option. Beginning on Monday, May 30, 2022, residents and visitors in the Township will be able to use the HotSpot Parking app to pay for parking at all metered and pay-and-display parking machines in the municipality.

As part of the Township’s modernization of services, the inclusion of a mobile payment option provides users with greater flexibility to make payments, top-up additional time and receive reminders that time is about to expire. 

Currently, Pay and Display parking machines are available to accept coins, credit cards, and Interac tap (contactless payments). The launch of the HotSPot Parking App provides the added feature for users to add a mobile payment through the use of the HotSpot Parking Application. To use the pay-by-phone option, residents and visitors will need to install the free HotSpot Parking app, which is available for both Apple and Android devices.

The Township provides Public Pay Parking at our four beach park locations.

  1. Lafontaine Beach
  2. Woodland Beach
  3. Jackson Beach
  4. Balm Beach

Digitizing the parking program has many benefits, including:

  • no risk of losing a hangtag or having to remember to transfer it between vehicles,
  • expanded customer service through HotSpot's frontline support for technical concerns,
  • ability to apply for a beach parking permit anytime, anywhere.

“Offering the parking program through HotSpot will provide greater public access to parking at our major beach parks, reduce wait times and allow greater flexibility for guests to visit the Township,” said Steve Harvey, Chief Municipal By-Law Officer.
