The EMEL application is very simple and allows you to pay for parking in Lisbon, without having to use coins. Just having a mobile phone, with some types of features such as having the possibility of geographic location.
For that you will need to open an account at EMEL or better register on the site.
After registration and validation, you can use the application. Make a note of the email and password. Download the application to your mobile phone.

1st reason, EMEL App very simple to register, download and start using. You don't even need to find the parking meters.
Once inside the ePark App, if you have the phone data on and the locator is active, the EMEL App will tell you the location where you are trying to park the vehicle.
If the georeferencing is working accurately shows not only the street but also the door number in front of which you are trying to park. In this case, at Alameda dos Oceanos, in front of number 47. Check out these elements. If they are correct, proceed. If you are in a border area between different fares, be careful.
There may be an error in georeferencing and the vehicle may be referenced in a location that, although nearby, may have another tariff. In this case, you can drag the positioning of the car to the correct location.
For example, for Alameda dos Oceanos, number 65.
It remains to press the blue arrow to start the parking.
You can increase or decrease the time you plan to park and don't forget to select the car registration number. You can have more than one enrollment registered in your application. The minimum time is 15 minutes, as the EMEL website says. Loading a new registration in the application requires a little care because it was not well programmed to “format” the Portuguese registration, xx-yy-zz.
2nd reason, you can pay for your car parking or any other that you have registered or that you register at the time. The ePark App allows it.
Don't worry too much about time, if you need to add more time to extend your parking, this is possible. You can program the application to notify you when the time is running out. You cannot exceed the parking time limit for that area.
In the area where the [+] and [-] signs are, you can increase or decrease the timeout.
If the time is increased too much, it may happen, with this intention or wrongly that the day becomes the following, as shown in the image below:
Re-set the end time as you see fit, for example until 18:59 pm
Finally press the start button.
Also if you’ve put in too much time, it’s not a problem. When you get to your vehicle, stop parking and the money you pay is just what you actually used.
3rd reason - you only pay for what you use, a good feature of the EMEL app, for car parks in Lisbon.
After starting your parking in Lisbon, the ePark App will add time and calculate the amount of the fare to be paid.
When you return to the ePark App, you’ll want to end your parking or eventually extend your parking a bit,
Find the following screen:
With Epark EMEL, it remains to End or Extend.
And give the ok in case you really want to finish the parking.
