Coun­cil rings the changes with new park­ing scheme

The Oban Times - - News -

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 at­is­ter.

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.
