INCREASED demand for cashless parking has led to new payment options in Warwick district car parks.
Newly installed terminals at 19 locations in Kenilworth, Leamington and Warwick will accept card and contactless payments as well as Apple and Android Pay.
Warwick district councillor Alan Rhead said: “We are delighted to offer customers these alternatives when paying to park in our off street and multi-storey facilities. It is convenient, as people don’t need to carry cash and it also ensures the welfare of our residents, visitors, commuters and employees, because they don’t have to handle money and it limits personal contact with the machines. Users can also extend their stay remotely from their phones.”
In October, the council renewed its contract with the national cashless parking provider RingGo, to encourage drivers to pay for their parking securely and touch free from their smartphones. The move has seen a rise in customers using the payment method.
