Cashless Parking in Torridge will be changing from Parkmobile to RingGo on the 26th of October. The move is part of a wholesale consolidation of cashless parking across the County, with single provision by RingGo across all Devon Councils.
As part of the move to RingGo, and to encourage safer, touch-free, parking, the normal convenience fee for paying to park by phone has been dropped. This means that the standard service will effectively cost the same as paying with cash.
One benefit of RingGo over cash payments at a machine is that if motorists realise, they want to stay longer, they can top up their parking via their phone without having to return to the vehicle. Optional text reminders can also be sent just before the parking is about to run out for a small charge, currently 10p.
Any existing Parkmobile user, who has not previously used RingGo, should download the RingGo app and complete their registration online at www.RingGo.co.uk to ensure they can park quickly and easily. Anyone who would like to try the convenience of cashless parking for the first time can do the same.
