The Transport Department (TD) said today (January 17) that, as one of the smart mobility initiatives, the replacement of about 9 800 existing roadside parking meters in Hong Kong by new ones has been completed to replace the old Octopus card-operated parking meters.
The new parking meters support the payment of parking fees through multiple means, and are equipped with sensors to detect whether a parking space is occupied. The new meters also support on-site and remote payments of parking fees through the mobile application "HKeMeter". Details are available at the TD's website (www.td.gov.hk/en/transport_in_hong_kong/parking/parking_meters/npm/index.html). For enquiries, members of the public can call the 24-hour service hotline at 2332 3700.
Moreover, the TD reminds holders of e-Park cards who wish to apply for a refund must visit designated outlets on or before June 30, otherwise no refund can be made. Details of refund locations are as follows:
|Address||12/F, HKT Lockhart Exchange Building, 3 Hennessy Road,
|G/F, HKT Tsuen Wan Exchange Building, 303-313 Castle Peak Road – Tsuen Wan, Tsuen Wan|

The e-Park card is an electronic stored value card launched by the TD in 1998 for the use of the then e-Park card parking meters. The e-Park card parking meters ceased operation in late 2004 and were replaced by the Octopus card-operated parking meters.
