New park­ing ser­vices prom­ises to sim­plify process

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

COUN­CILS in Bucks have changed the com­pany which pro­vides them with park­ing ser­vices.

South Bucks and Chiltern Dis­trict Coun­cils have teamed up with RingGo, which will pro­vide cash­less park­ing at its car parks in both dis­trict.

It means that cus­tomers who signed up with pre­vi­ous providers Park­mo­bile and Pay­by­phone will now need to reg­is­ter with RingGo.

South Bucks Dis­trict Coun­cil­lor Luisa Sul­li­van said: “The new ser­vice goes live on Sun­day, Novem­ber 1, and it will be of­fer­ing res­i­dents, shop­pers and vis­i­tors a sim­ple and ef­fi­cient way of pay­ing to park their cars in the coun­cil-run car parks.

“Switch­ing providers will make it eas­ier for lo­cal mo­torists, be­cause they’ll al­ready be reg­is­tered when they use car parks in the Chiltern dis­trict.”

Chiltern Dis­trict Coun­cil­lor Mike Smith said: “Who among us hasn’t been driven mad by not hav­ing the right change for park­ing?

“Or who has wor­ried that you won’t get back to your car be­fore your ticket ex­pires?

“We all seem to carry less cash th­ese days and it makes sense to have the same cash­less park­ing provider across both coun­cils – I’m sure it will make life much eas­ier for our res­i­dents.”
