The City of Tampere manages approximately 4,000 paid parking spaces located along different streets. The parking fees are determined based on whether the parking space is in the centre or outside the central area.

The purpose of paid parking is to ensure that parking is available for car users visiting the city. Depending on the payment machine in question, parking payments can be made either with coins, with card or by mobile.

Parking inspectors can verify in real time the validity of the mobile fee paid and the validity of the registration number activated in the application at the time of the inspection.

Finnpark Oy is responsible for the parking machines used to pay for parking.
