No coins for parking? Just use RingGo!

09 May 2017

RingGo cashless parking is now available at on-street pay and display parking bays in Stevenage.

Customers parking in pay and display bays on Coreys Mill Lane and North Road near the Lister Hospital as well as town centre on-street parking in Danestrete, Swingate, Marshgate, Westgate, The Quadrant, Southgate East and Southgate West can now pay with their mobile phone.

RingGo is a mobile phone service that enables you to pay for your parking by credit or debit card, rather than with cash at a machine. As well as being fast and convenient, RingGo reduces the risk of receiving a parking fine as you can top up your parking and extend your stay wherever you are. Civil Enforcement Officers can check which vehicles have paid by RingGo so you don’t need to put a ticket on your dashboard.

If you have an iPhone, an Android, Blackberry 10 or Windows mobile phone, you can download and use the RingGo app to register and pay for your parking.  Or call the standard rate telephone number 020 3046 0060 (shown on signs) at the time you want to park.  If you want to save time, you can pre-register your details in advance either through the app or at www.RingGo.co.uk.

If it’s your first time using the service, you’ll be asked for information about your vehicle, the five digit location code (shown on the sign) and details of your payment card.  When you use the service again, RingGo recognises your mobile phone and retrieves the information given, reducing time considerably.  

You can pay with RingGo via the app, by calling, using a text message or paying online. At most locations across the UK, a small convenience charge of 20p is made for using RingGo, on top of the normal parking tariff. If you call RingGo you are charged the standard rate agreed with your network provider. If you use the RingGo “text to park” option, you will pay for the outgoing text message at your agreed rate, but optional parking session confirmation messages and reminder texts (alerting you when your session is about to run out), cost 10p per message.
