Here’s How You Spend More Time Doing The Things You Love (AND Win Something While You’re At It)

The middle of November is here, but we’re still taking in the crisp fall air, cozying up in sweaters, and of course, savouring that pumpkin spice latte. However, while we’re fully indulging in our favourite fall activities across the city, who has time to worry about parking?

Luckily, Winnipeg has a well-kept secret that takes the pain out of parking: the PayByPhone app. With PayByPhone, you can pay for your parking in seconds from your phone at City of Winnipeg street parking and surface lot locations throughout downtown. This means no more fumbling at the meter with coins, or standing in line to pay in the cold.

The app also takes it a step further by sending text message parking reminders before your parking expires, and gives you the opportunity to extend your time right from your phone – perfect for when the Jets go into overtime or a dinner with friends goes longer than anticipated. So the next time you’re parking in the city, just look for the PayByPhone location number on the payment machine or meter to enter into the app and confirm your parking.

Ready to head out on a fall adventure? Find the app on the iTunes and Google Play store here, or visit to start parking. Then read on below to enter to win a Fools & Horses gift card or a Thermea spa day for two courtesy of PayByPhone.


Using PayByPhone helps you spend less time parking, and more time doing what you love. To celebrate, they want to give you the chance to win a spa day at Thermea for two, or one of 25 $10 gift cards, so you can cozy up at Fools & Horses, after a fun-filled fall day.

To enter, share your favourite fall activity in Winnipeg on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram using hashtag #PBPWinnipeg or comment on the Facebook post here. The contest closes on November 28th.
