Illinois residents to benefit from e-money parking payments

Residents of a village in Illinois will soon be able to use an e-money payment system to purchase their parking ticket, it has been revealed.
Transport officials in Barrington have confirmed that motorists will be able to use bank cards and mobile phones to pay for their parking fee in one of the busiest commuter car parks, reports

Mobile phone users can even pay for their fare while on the train, as they simply have to ring up the provided number and provide their account details to settle the fare.

The $125,000 (78,000) project is being deployed by electronic fare payment specialists firm Total Parking Solutions.

Jason Hayden, financial services director of the Village Board, said: "We're hoping it will be a real improvement for customer service and functionality. We're really trying to make it as easy as possible for people to use the lot, use the train."

The scheme has already proved to be a success in nearby towns such as Roselle, Schaumburg and Vernon Hills.
