Pay by Phone Parking

Payment of parking charges by mobile phone

In car parks and at every on-street parking location where parking charges apply, you can pay for your parking by using the pay by mobile phone service. This service is operated by PayByPhone. Customers needing assistance can use the online self-service support centre.

All payment by mobile phone transactions will incur a 5p service charge, except for locations where there are no parking machines.
