PayStay parking options now available throughout city centre

The City of Greater Bendigo is extending the successful PayStay parking system following a lengthy trial at two all day carparks in Market and Myers Street.

PayStay allows users to pay for their parking online or via a smartphone app and will be available throughout the Bendigo city centre except for the Edwards Street and Hargreaves Street Multi Story Carparks. 

City of Greater Bendigo Manager Safe and Healthy Environments Caroline Grylls said the City is keen to continue to provide the community with a more flexible and convenient parking payment system.

PayStay allows motorists to park without having to buy a physical ticket or put coins into a ticket machine,” Ms Grylls said.

“People don’t carry or use cash as much as they did in the past and many prefer the convenience of paying by card.

“Users of the PayStay system can register multiple vehicles to one account and for a small reminder service fee people can opt to have SMS reminders sent to remind them when their parking session is due to expire.

PayStay also has SMS and phone payment options and accepts Mastercard and Visa. However, people can still purchase parking tickets using cash or their credit and debit cards.

“A number of councils across Victoria already use this technology which means hundreds of thousands of motorists across the country are already familiar with it.

“The City has installed new signage to promote where PayStay is available.” 

The PayStay app is available to download from the App Store or Google play.  For more information go to or contact the City on 5434 6000.
