New cashless on-street parking payment system saves drivers money
Posted on: 17 January 2017
“Offering cashless payment means motorists don’t have to worry about having the right change in their pockets when they use our on-street parking areas.
“Having Bemrose Mobile provide the service in Devon offers a significant saving for drivers with a convenience charge of just 3p per transaction compared to the previous 20p charge.
“Cashless has proved to be a popular payment option since we launched it six years ago, which is great news as a the service means we will eventually be able to reduce the costs associated with providing a physical pay and display system, such as machine maintenance and cash collection.
“The option to pay by cash is still available for those who prefer the traditional method, but I would encourage everyone to have a go at using this new service and discover how easy and convenient it is.”
The new system offers drivers the option to pay for their parking by credit or debit card by entering a four digit location code displayed at the site. Payment can be made by phone, SMS, via an app or website. Drivers can also set up an account so that paying for parking is even quicker and more convenient as they won’t have to enter their details each time they park.
Stickers informing customers of the change are displayed on all Devon County Council on-street parking machines.
