More options to pay for parking at North Devon Council car parks
Posted on: 5 September 2017
You can now pay to park using a credit or debit card at North Devon Council car parks.
The council has updated its parking machines to accept cards, which means you don’t need to worry if you haven’t got enough cash to hand. You can also pay to park with Apple Pay or Android Pay using the ‘swipe pad’. You can still pay using your mobile phone by calling RingGo or downloading the RingGo app.
There is a minimum charge of three hours in short-stay car parks when using a credit or debit card. You can make contactless payments and a receipt is available at the machine at time of purchase. Unfortunately American Express cards are not currently accepted.
North Devon Council Leader, Councillor Des Brailey, says: “We know that people like to have choice and providing more payment options will make things easier for car park users, especially if you arrive at a car park without any cash. Many people already use RingGo as it offers the flexibility to add to your stay without returning to your car to buy another ticket. You can find out more about this on our website.”
All of the council’s payment machines also accept the new £1 coin and will continue to take the old pound coin until 15 October, after which it will no longer be legal tender.
If you’re a frequent user, there is a range of parking permits available for residents, businesses and visitors, details of which are on the council’s website www.northdevon.gov.uk/parking. North Devon Council permits are only available for council-owned car parks, on-street permits are issued by Devon County Council, as stated on the permits.Posted in: Economy
