• Text: PARK [location code] [duration] to 51155

Note: Duration can be hour (h), day (d), week (w) or month (m).
e.g. PARK 0765 D to 51155 to park for one day at location 0765
e.g. PARK 0765 W to 51155 to park for one week at location 0765

(Do not include space in the duration, i.e 1DAY)

• App: Click “Create Parking Pass” tab

Simply download the parkbytext™ app from the App Store / Google Play log-in, and then click on the “Create Parking Pass” tab.

A parkbytext account holder is a customer whom created an account either online at parkbytext.ie by clicking "Sign-up" on the homepage;  by texting: PARK to 51155 and following text instructions; by calling the helpdesk on 0818 444 999; or by registering on Facebook.com/parkbytext 

These users receive more benefits than a non-parkbytext user. One such benefit is that an account holder does not need to enter their payment card details each time they park their vehicle - as their payment (credit / debit) card is directly associated with their account. 

parkbytext account holders can also log-in to their own account on parkbytext and change their account settings and can view an account statement and parking transactions.

Multiple days allow you to purchase multiple hours up to a point where it is cheaper to buy a day's parking, similar with days and weeks.

To purchase 2 days parking at location 0765 simply Text: PARK 0765 2D to 51155

No, although creating an account is extremely easy (Online or Text) to do, you do not have to be an account holder to use parkbytext™.

parkbytext provides a mobile parking payments (MPP) platform to NCPS, and other car park operators in the UK. Our mission is to provide customers with a quick, easy and convenient parking payment option, in place of payment machines. When a NCPS Enforcement Officer is ensuring compliance at a car park where parkbytext is a payment option, they will view all successful and current parking transactions created through the parkbytext system, in real-time, on their handheld device.  Any vehicles found not to be complaint with the car park rules will face enforcement action.
All enforcement appeals need to be fully documented in your appeal with NCPS. All appeals must be submitted online through http://ncps.ie/appeals, as per the instructions issued to you by the Enforcement Officer.
