Passport Canada Parking App


Memorial launched a new parking payment option this spring through Passport Canada.  In addition to existing coin payment at meters and Pay & Display (P&D) machines, this technology allows drivers to pay for parking on St. John’s campus using their debit or credit card.

The app can be accessed via web browser ( or can be downloaded to your Smartphone through the Apple Store (iPhone devices) or Google Play (Android devices).  A User Guide for the Passport Canada Parking App can be found here.

Users have three options to pay through the app:

  • Visit Memorial University’s Parking Office (1st Floor, Facilities           Management Building) to upload money to the Wallet using your debit card or cash. A $20.00 minimum transaction is required;
  • Upload money to the phone’s Wallet feature with a MasterCard or VISA credit card.  The Wallet feature stores the payment on the app and allows users to quickly pay for current and future parking sessions; or
  • Pay directly with a MasterCard or VISA credit card for each parking transaction.

In addition to paying for parking a session, customers can monitor their session, extend their session remotely (up to the maximum allotted time), view payment history, and receive email receipts, among other features.

Each university-operated meter and P&D machine has a sticker decal placed at the base of the meter or machine indicating the zone to be entered in the app.  To avoid being ticketed, users must ensure that the correct license plate number (LPN) and/or zone number are used in the Passport Canada parking app.

There are parking lots on campus where some or all meters have been removed (e.g. Area 56 A), but still require payment for parking through Passport Canada.  Parkers are encouraged to scan the lot for Passport Canada parking signage indicating the zone number to pay for parking.

Drivers must ensure their space is paid for either by coin or the Passport Canada parking app. Vehicles parked at a defective meter or space serviced by a defective Pay and Display machine will be required to pay for parking via Passport Canada, or move their vehicle to a space with a functioning meter or Pay and Display machine.
