EasyPark Mobile at City Hall Parking Lot

The City of Hamilton is pleased to announce that the Easy Park Mobile application, for use with smart phones, is available for use in City Hall car park, effective tomorrow. This will provide a very convenient method for customers to use the car park without having to visit the pay stations. The City of Hamilton thanks the general public for their patience during the implementation of this feature.

Motorists are reminded that in order to use your EasyPark credit to pay for parking in City Hall, you MUST have the mobile application downloaded on your smart phone. You cannot operate the EasyPark payment from the yellow EasyPark meter; these meters CANNOT be used in the lot for payment. In addition, mobile app users must display the EasyPark Mobile sticker on their windshield. These can be found at the following locations:

1.   City Hall Administration Offices

2.   CellOne Retail outlets in Hamilton, Somerset and St. George’s

3.   EasyPark Office, Broadway House, 1 Crow Lane (Top of Spurling Hill)

4.   P-Tech on Reid Street

The City of Hamilton advises that all instructions for use of this new payment option can be found on its website – www.cityofhamilton.bm - under the NEWS category as well as on the EasyPark website – www.easypark.bm. Instructions can also be found in the HELP section of the mobile app as the app has automatically updated and EasyPark will be sending emails directly to their subscribed customers as well as putting details on their social media – FaceBook, Twitter, etc. Printed directions can also be collected from the offices in City Hall and QR Codes containing instructions will be installed on signs and appear on social media, for scanning purposes.

To pay for parking using EasyPark Mobile please take the following steps:

1.   Press the button at the entry gate and take the paper ticket as directed. Do not scan ticket at this time.

2.   On returning to the car park (and before proceeding to your gate of choice), open the EasyPark Mobile application on your phone and press the ‘Gate’ icon on the bottom of your screen.

3.   Press the “Scan Barcode” button and scan the bar code with your phone at the bottom of the paper ticket.

4.   Select the ‘Pay’ button on the Confirm Payment screen to submit payment from your EasyPark Mobile account. The screen will then display a gate opening screen with a 15-minute countdown timer.

5.   Proceed to the exit of your choice, before the 15-minute timer expires.

6.   Once at the gate, select the gate code that correlates to the gate you are exiting (A = Victoria Street; B= Wesley Street) from the Gate To Open drop down list and press the green “Open” button.

 

Note: you should ONLY press the "OPEN" button once you arrive at the gate, as a ticket is only valid for ONE payment/gate opening.

7.  Press “OK” to confirm "OPEN" gate.

Note: before you confirm, please check to ensure that the gate you’ve arrived at matches the gate you selected on the app.

If you experience any issues, particularly outside of normal business hours, please proceed to one of the City's parking lot pay stations and submit payment as directed (using entry ticket) and exit the parking lot using the paper ticket exit system.

If you pay and are unsuccessful at opening the gate using EasyPark Mobile and consequently exited the car park using the paper ticket system, please email support@easypark.bm or call EasyPark on 542-7000 to seek a credit. All questions regarding the EasyPark Mobile payment operating process can also be directed to EasyPark.

Note: All requests for credit MUST include a copy of the paid or validated related City paper ticket (with a valid ticket number).

Note: If you have insufficient funds in your EasyPark account, you can upload funds to your account using the Mobile app and restart the process or proceed to a pay station using the paper ticket payment process.

                                           Request For Proposals - City Arts Festival

        Hamilton, Bermuda – Wednesday 25th January, 2017     

Over the past two years the City Arts Festival has focused on beautifying various areas in the City in a concerted effort to live up to the mandate of being a ‘vibrant’ City. As many as 9 new installations have added colour, culture and beauty to the streets and parks of Hamilton.

For 2017, the City Arts Festival has partnered with Washington Properties and identified Washington Lane as in major need of improvement. To that end, a Request For Proposals begins tomorrow for artists to submit their installation ideas for Washington Lane, only. The deadline for submissions is Monday, February 13th, 2017. Tender packages outlining the guidelines and requirements can be collected from the Corporation of Hamilton offices in City Hall or downloaded from the City’s website – www.cityofhamilton.bm . Any queries or questions can be directed to 292-1234, ext. 278 or via email at events@cityhall.bm

Mayor Charles Gosling states, ‘The City is truly delighted to partner with Washington Properties on this most important initiative as we continue to nourish visual artistic opportunities around the City. Last year Chancery Lane had a much appreciated facelift and with the banner year ahead of us, it thrills me to think that one of our most highly used pedestrian thoroughfares in the City, Washington Lane, will receive the very much needed attention it deserves. This will not only beautify the lane throughout but will also create a safer and more secure passage for all.’ 

Washington Properties (Bermuda) Limited General Manager, Paul Slaughter, added, ‘Washington Properties is pleased to partner with the Corporation of Hamilton and neighbouring property owners in bringing the City Arts Initiative to Washington Lane.  This will surely create a more attractive environment for both visitors and the local community.’

City Hall Car Park rates - starting Monday August 21, 2016
Click the link for more details.

The rates for parking will be $2.00 per hour for a maximum of 3 hours at City Hall Car Park. Extra tariff charges apply after the 3-hour maximum limit, to discourage motorists from overstaying the limit.
If a motorist exceeds the 3 hour limit, ordinarily they would receive a parking ticket. In this case as the car park barrier system does not require ticketing for overstays, the motorist is charged an additional $10, taking the total to $16.00 for up to 4 hours and past 4 hours is an additional $65 tariff.
It is the City's hope that this car park be used as intended, for stays up to 3 hours and that the higher tariffs will serve as an incentive to do so. Motorists who stay within the 3 hour limit are not impacted in any way by the higher tariffs.

Please note EasyPark integration is not yet complete. Payment is accepted in CASH (coins and bills) and CARDS (Mastercard and VISA credit and debit cards).
