Cashless Parking: Benefits of Parking Payments by Phone.
Traditional parking payments have meant drivers constantly having to store up on coins and carry them around to use in pay & display or barriered car park machines. We’re proud to help reduce that daily stress by going cashless in all of our car parks.
Over the last 15 years, parking payments have evolved rapidly – moving from cash to interactive voice response (IVR), then SMS, and now – smartphone payments.
The introduction of cashless apps, which was initially driven by the hassle of needing bundles of coins as well as the over-reliance on card usage for some, has now expanded into so much more than just ease of payments.
Drivers can search for vacant spaces and are shown the quickest route to get there, can pay quickly and easily, extend their time, and even find an electric charging point, all via their smartphone. If you’re visiting somewhere new, and can’t remember where you parked, you can even simply select your live phone parking session, click through, and use your favourite mapping service to find your way back to the car.
And in a post-COVID-19 world, where so many motorists are reluctant to touch shared surfaces, these types of solutions highlight why there’s a massive surge towards the integration and usage of cashless payment systems and all the benefits that go with them.

We’ve chosen to partner with one of the leading parking payments apps in the UK for use in all of our car parks, RingGo, which has 17 million registered motorists in the UK alone. Thousands of motorists have already registered with RingGo and regularly use it for parking payments nationwide.
We provide bold, clear signage, in all of our managed car parks which highlight all the key information motorists need in order to use the RingGo app in our car parks.
