Rotterdam is trying to reduce the number of cars in the city centre in order to improve air quality and make more room for pedestrians, cyclists and terraces. It is expected that up to 2000 parking spots will disappear in the coming years.

Rotterdam has introduced its own parking app: named Pay010. The app offers the same functionality as the payment terminals on the street. However, by using the app you'll be able to pay beforehand (with either credit card or iDeal) as well as extend your parking time if needed, by simply using your phone.
Registration in the app isn't required but has benefits; if you park shorter than expected, the remaining parking time rolls over and is used the next time you park.
The Pay010 app is available for free in the App Store and Play Store.
