The HotSpot Parking and Transit app allows users the to pay for parking, purchase transit passes and ride the bus, all from their mobile device!

With HotSpot Parking, your first 30 minutes of parking is on us, and our Ticket Defender service protects users from receiving tickets while in participating HotSpot businesses throughout HotSpot serviced cities. You can top-up your parking sessions from your phone, and refund parking sessions, adding the funds back to your HotSpot Wallet. HotSpot users also receive alerts 15 minutes prior to their session expiring and when their parking has expired. Need to pay a parking ticket? HotSpot users simply take a picture of their ticket and pay it through their phone.

HotSpot businesses send free parking directly to your phone when you enter with a valid parking session. This provides you with a relaxed, care-free parking experience while visiting local shopping and tourist areas, not to mention covers the cost of a coffee.

Need to ride the bus? HotSpot users can now purchase Transit Passes to add to their HotSpot Wallet. These passes can be used to ride Transit in the form of a digital pass in select HotSpot cities! Monthly passes, senior passes, they are all there! We even provide an in-app route planner to make sure you get where you need to be.

We hope you enjoy these awesome new feature and appreciate your support!

Much Love,

The HotSpot Team

Thank you!

So easy to use

Clean, fast app that has good features such as parking history and a refund for unused time.


Stay away from this.

$20 annual membership fee? Really!

When the vendor of the app fails to be up front in indicating an annual fee, that is not cool.

The app repeatedly failed to accept my card. Deleted!

Developer Response

Hello! My apologies you experienced issues with our app. We do offer monthly membership option as well as an annual discount for CAA members. Prior to signing up for a membership, we cover your first 30-minute session to allow you to try the app for free and see the benefits such as the refund feature, parking receipts and the ability to top up your session remotely. You can also cancel your membership at any time.
Over the past few days, we have had some reports from users experiencing an issue adding their payment information and our developers and currently implementing a fix to resolve this issue. Feel free to reach out directly to or give us a call at 1-855-712-5888 if you would like to discuss further.
