Council rings the changes with new parking scheme
MOTORISTS using Highland Council car parking machines will no longer have to search for change with the introduction of ‘RingGo’ phone parking payments across the region.
RingGo is mobile phone service which lets motorists pay for their parking with a credit or debit card, rather than using cash at a machine.
People in Fort William will be able to use the service when parking at View Forth car park.
Drivers who park their car in an area featuring the RingGo service can contact RingGo by smartphone app, calling 01463 690 001, SMS or online, and pay for their parking by phone.
A Highland Council spokesperson said: ‘ With RingGo, there’s no need to carry change, or visit a parking machine, or receive parking tickets as parking enforcement officers check which vehicles are parked with RingGo via their handheld units.’
Drivers can pre-register with RingGo by using the RingGo smartphone app (down- loadable free of charge either through your phone or from the relevant store) or on the internet at www.myRingGo.co.uk/register.
While pre-registering for the service, motorists will be asked to provide the number plate, colour and make of their vehicle, and their payment card details.
Drivers can also register at the same time they want to park, either by using the RingGo app or by calling the RingGo number which is 01463 690 001.
