Parking Trial for TFC Matches in 2023

Exhibition Place in collaboration with Toronto FC and the Toronto Parking Authority are trialing exclusive mobile pay in Lot 852 during TFC matches in 2023. Parking Attendants will be in place to provide Customer Service support to visitors who will pay exclusively via the Mobile Pay Green P App. Credit, Debit, and other forms of payment will not be available in Lot 852 during TFC matches; however, other lots will still accept these forms of payment.  Parking Attendants will hand out pamphlets with instructions on how to use the Green P App beginning with the first match on March 11th and the trial will run through the rest of the season.  Mobile pay should really enhance the customer experience for those visitors who attend many matches in a season as well as assist with traffic challenges faced at those busier times!
