parkmobile.gifSince February this year, Parkmobile in conjunction with London Borough of Wandsworth, launched the first cashless and ticketless parking in the UK, with South West Trains following in April introducing this system in Andover and Fleet. This solution offers motorists the luxury of parking without searching for coins, or hunting for pay and display machines, and also ends overpaying and therefore wasting money. Also removes the risk of a PCN due to not paying for enough time. It only takes a short call to activate and deactivate parking transactions from the comfort of a car, office or home, even on the train. This system has proven to generate more income for councils.
