A multi storey car park in South Yorkshire has switched from pay on foot to pay and display to avoid traffic congestion at peak times.
metric.gifThe Northern Multi Storey in Doncaster has replaced its entrance barrier with 11 on floor Metric Parking machines which will go ‘live’ this summer.

When the Metric Accent S2 model went live, Doncaster introduced a smart card for existing permit holders.

Said Richard Boultbee, Metric’s sales representative for Yorkshire: “Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council has purchased 11 S2’s together with 2,000 smart cards and appropriate software.

“The machines will go live when the 700 existing permits expire and current holders, as well as other car park users, can then switch to the smart card for five or six day parking in the multi storey.

“The Metric Accent S2’s will have a numeric keypad so that users can insert their registration number into the machine and have it printed on a ticket for that day’s parking.

“Doncaster has decided to change from pay on foot because it causes traffic congestion at the entrance to the car park at peak times of the day”.
