Parkeon lands order for local ferry service

The Bournemouth-Swanage Ferry Company has installed a solar-powered Parkeon Strada Transfer Pay & Display (P&D) terminal to sell tickets for the Sandbanks ferry that crosses the 350 metres wide entrance to Poole Harbour.  
The chain-operated service saves passengers over 25 miles on a return journey between Parkeons home town of Poole and Swanage.

Passengers can buy tickets either from the payment terminal or from the ticket box, explained Neil McCheyne, the operators General Manager. 

Its easier for us if they pay at the machine and more are doing so since we installed this new one.  Its working extremely well. 

The coin-operated terminal can be used to purchase tickets for pedestrians, cyclists and motor cyclists.  Customers simply insert the correct fee then press the green button.  The ticket is then checked and cancelled on the ferry.  All other vehicles pay at the toll boxes on the Swanage side of the crossing.

We ordered the solar-powered Strada to replace a mains-operated Parkeon DG-series machine that we had for at least 15 years. 

It stood up very well to the corrosive sea air here, added Neil McCheyne.
