PAY BY PHONE PARKING IS CHANGING

From 3 April, paying for parking by phone in the London Borough of Bexley will switch to a new service - RingGo.

 If you haven’t used RingGo before, you can register to use it either by downloading and using the RingGo app (free to download and available for most smartphones) or by going online to www.RingGo.co.uk and completing details about yourself, your vehicle and payment card. 

When you come to park, you simply provide the location code (a five digit number shown on signs near the parking bay) and say how long you want to park.

To see how RingGo operates, watch the short animation at www.myRingGo.co.uk/howitworks

If you haven’t used phone parking before, why not try it?  Make the switch and you don’t have to -

  • Save up change
  • Hang around in the rain or cold
  • Trek to and from the machine
  • Put a ticket on your dashboard

A charge of 20p is made each time you use the service.

You can also be reminded by text message when your parking is about to run out and top up your parking wherever you are, reducing the risk of a penalty charge notice. The cost of a reminder text is 10p.

RingGo is the most widespread cashless parking solution across the UK. It has 10 million registered motorists in its database and is offered by more than 125 UK local authorities. 

The shared parking service for Bexley and Bromley has recently awarded APCOA Parking (UK) with a new 10-year contract for parking services.

From 3 April, when the service goes live, it will also be possible to register for RingGo by phone.
