The local authority is partnering with RingGo – the UK’s leading cashless parking provider – to allow motorists in the area an easy and quick method of payment rather than having to pay by cash.
Users that don’t have a smartphone can book their parking by calling, sending a text message, or paying online.
Quick and easy-to-use booking system
Convener of Stirling Council’s Environment and Housing Committee, Cllr Jim Thomson said: “People may have started noticing RingGo location stickers being added to our ticket machines ahead of the new service going live on Monday.
“With only a few days left until paying by mobile becomes an option across Stirling, please download the app so you can use the new quick and easy-to-use booking system straight away.”
By paying for parking via RingGo there is no need to display a ticket as Enforcement Officers check the vehicle registration details against the RingGo database.
Touch of a button
Vice Convener, Cllr Danny Gibson said: “It’s great news that motorists across Stirling will now have a cashless booking system for parking from the start of next week alongside the current cash payment option.
“Using the RingGo app will save time, remove the need to bring appropriate change in cash and provide greater flexibility when visiting our town centres as you can extend your stay with the touch of a button.”
RingGo is already widely available across Scotland, including at neighbouring local authorities Perth and Kinross and Falkirk, as well as Glasgow and Edinburgh.
More information on using RingGo can be found on the Stirling Council website.
