RingGo Introduced at Major London Stations

RingGo cashless parking today rolls out at three major stations in the capital as part of its continuing expansion across the UK.
The three stations are, London Waterloo, situated in Southwark, London Victoria, and London Paddington, both in Westminster. Paddington station is also the London Terminus of the First Great Western network, which has successfully operated RingGo since 2006. The implementation of pay by phone parking at these stations is part of a wider rollout of the RingGo service, carried out in conjunction with parking enforcement provider, APCOA. A number of major regional stations are due to follow rapidly - including York, Manchester Piccadilly and Glasgow Central - extending the reach of the UK's leading cashless parking solution, still further.

For those unfamiliar with RingGo, the service enables users to pay for their car parking via their mobile phone - charging the parking fee directly to their credit or debit card. No tickets or coins are required, so users can avoid potential queues, as well as wasted time, walking to and from the ticket machine. The scheme is enforced by Parking Attendants, who check the database of registered RingGo users via their normal handheld devices. Once registered, it takes users less than a minute to park - a substantial benefit for rail travellers rushing to catch the train.

Phil Howell, Business Development Manager for APCOA, says of the launch "We are delighted to be implementing RingGo in London today. These three stations are amongst the busiest in the UK - with total visitor numbers exceeding a quarter of a billion each year - and people parking at these sites expect a quality service. Our experience of working with RingGo is that it's well thought-through and we've seen good take up of it elsewhere."

RingGo's Implementation Manager, Alex Walker concurs "We're proud of every RingGo implementation, but launching our service at such key transport sites, in the very heart of the capital, makes these ones particularly special. We're sure that London rail travellers - and the regional ones to come - will like RingGo and find it makes parking their car, much quicker and easier."
