Parking & Transit

Park for free Uptown

Courtesy of the City of Saint John, receive one hour of free parking per day when you use the HotSpot App in Uptown Saint John!

Between February 1 and April 16, each HotSpot user is eligible for one hour of free parking per day.
Users must have an active HotSpot Parking subscription to park using the app. Download HotSpot from the App Store or Google Play.


Uptown Saint John has many convenient parking options. On-street and most off-street parking lots are free on weekends and after 6pm. Conveniently located off-street parking lots are the best option for those spending a few hours or more uptown.  Hourly and monthly rates are available at most parking garages and parking lots. Most on-street spaces have the easy to use ‘pay and display’ system, allowing the freedom of up to two hours of uninterrupted parking.

Much of the uptown is linked to two major indoor parking garages by way of pedways, making shops and businesses easily accessible.  The uptown is the transit hub of Saint John public transit stops located throughout the uptown. Getting to and around the uptown has never been easier!

HotSpot Parking


Gone are the days of rushing back to the parking meter to top up your time. With HotSpot Parking, pay-by-phone parking is a reality.

HotSpot created the tools to allow you to top up your parking remotely via mobile app and refund unused parking credit. Additionally, If you’re parked uptown and forget to either start a parking session or overrun a parking session, we’ve got your back! Through the Parking Extender feature, we are able to create or extend a parking session for you if you’re shopping in a HotSpot business.

To make sure that you’re only paying for the time that you’re actually parked, HotSpot developed a refund feature. If you’ve got time left over on your HotSpot parking session, refund it back to your account. The HotSpot app can be downloaded to your mobile device from Google Play or the App Store.
