Cashless Parking Set for Worcester City Centre

Drivers in Worcester will soon be able to pay for their parking and extend their stay using just their mobile phone and a credit or debit card.  
From November 15th, cashless parking service RingGo will be offered as an alternative to coin payments, in Worcester City Council's 14 off street car parks. Worcester Business Improvement District (BID), the not for profit organisation which aims to boost trade for city centre businesses have funded the scheme.

Cash payments through pay and display machines will still be possible, but by using the new RingGo system, motorists no longer need save up their change, nor feed coins into a slot in the rain and cold.  Instead, they can either pay from the comfort of their car, or call the service as they walk to their destination.  Extending stays is also available by using RingGo.

The Worcester BID Chairman, Nicki Williams says, "In our research of local businesses and the projects they would like us to pursue, cashless parking was one of the most popular suggestions.  So we are particularly pleased it is to be rolled out here so soon."  

"It's easy to see the benefits.  For motorists, it provides an easy way to pay for parking and it can also let you know when your time is running out.  Rather than having to trek back to your car to add more money (or worse still risk a penalty charge notice), you can simply call up again and extend your stay wherever you are putting an end to aborted office meetings or meeting for a drink, or having to dash out of a shop whilst in the middle of browsing or buying something.

"That's good news for customers and for all sectors of Worcester's business community."
