Transport Department completes replacement of roadside parking meters by new parking meters

     The Transport Department (TD) said today (January 17) that, as one of the smart mobility initiatives, the replacement of about 9 800 existing roadside parking meters in Hong Kong by new ones has been completed to replace the old Octopus card-operated parking meters. 

     The new parking meters support the payment of parking fees through multiple means, and are equipped with sensors to detect whether a parking space is occupied. The new meters also support on-site and remote payments of parking fees through the mobile application "HKeMeter". Details are available at the TD's website ( For enquiries, members of the public can call the 24-hour service hotline at 2332 3700.

     Moreover, the TD reminds holders of e-Park cards who wish to apply for a refund must visit designated outlets on or before June 30, otherwise no refund can be made. Details of refund locations are as follows:

     The e-Park card is an electronic stored value card launched by the TD in 1998 for the use of the then e-Park card parking meters. The e-Park card parking meters ceased operation in late 2004 and were replaced by the Octopus card-operated parking meters.
