Cobalt Telephone Technologies' Payment System Arrives At Rail Station

Passengers travelling from Bristol Parkway station will no longer need to find change to pay their daily L4.50 parking fee, thanks to an innovative Cobalt Telephone Technologies SMS payment system .

They will also receive a smartcard, based on radio frequency identity (RFID) technology, that can be displayed in car windscreens. Parking attendants have been issued with RFID-enabled Nokia 5140 mobile phones to read the smartcard and check that a vehicle owner has paid.

To encourage people to sign up for the new system, the station will provide a discounted daily rate of L4.30.

About Cobalt Telephone Technologies' SMS Payment

Currently only available to local authorities using the Automated Telephone Payment Module, this contemporary payment method allows parking tickets to be settled on account from a pre-registered mobile phone in a matter of moments. Neat and effective, deployment of this technology allows local authorities to demonstrate the achievement of an "excellent" outcome as defined within ODPM guidelines.
