Residents and visitors can now use their mobile phones to pay for parking in East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s car parks.
The council has introduced new cashless payment methods to give people more choice and convenience when paying for a parking space or buying a parking permit.
The council has signed up to the MiPermit system which allows people to use their smartphones or computers to pay for parking at any of the council’s car parks.
Car park users can now pay by:
Using these methods people will not need to display a ticket in their car windscreen.
Another advantage of the new system is people can pay up to seven days in advance.
On normal transactions MiPermit will charge a 10p processing fee on top of the council’s normal car park charge, in line with industry standards.
People can still continue to pay by cash or card at any of the ticket machines.
Councillor Andy Burton, the council’s portfolio holder for planning, highways and transportation, said: “By embracing this new technology we’re bringing our car parks into the 21st century and making it much easier for people to pay the way they want.
“People won’t need to have the right change or cards in their pockets to be able to park, just their mobile phone.”
