As the first city in the world, Tartu introduced mobile parking payments in 2000. Mobile parking is the most convenient way to park. It allows you to pay for parking with your cell phone. You do not need to buy a parking ticket, instead you can park by sending an SMS, making a call or using the mobile app. Extending your parking session is also easy.

This close cooperation with the mobile operators is saving hundreds of thousand euros for the city every year, as there is no need to have a big number of parking meters and related cash-collection activities anymore. Also it is fair play for the drivers - you just pay for the actual parking time.
