Special tariffs offered at Newcastle University

Newcastle University has installed solar powered Cale MP 104 Pay and Display terminals for on campus use, to introduce a new parking scheme.
Faced with the problem of reduced parking spaces due to ongoing campus redevelopment, the decision was taken in order to ease daytime car park congestion and to ensure that those who needed the spaces most were able to park.

The Pay and Display system is intended to offer a fair method of parking allocation, allowing permit holders parking during the daytime hours, and restricting members of the public to parking after 4pm. This therefore allows parking spaces to those who require them during the day, and encourages others to find alternative means of transport to the University.

The machines have dual tariffs built in allowing the university to differentiate prices between members of the public and permit holders.

Users can switch between the two tariffs at the push of a button, with the tickets clearly displaying PER or PUB for PERmit holders and members of the PUBlic respectively.

Tickets for use with permits are clearly marked with 10 mm high lettering. This makes it easy to distinguish between a permit and public ticket from a distance of a few feet, even in poor light conditions, and to determine if the permit ticket is accompanied by a parking permit.

Newcastle University chose to use the solar powered Cale MP 104 for environmental reasons and for ease and flexibility of installation.
