RingGo will be introduced from April 3

Bexley residents will have to pay 20p extra every time they use a new paying by phone for parking service being introduced to the borough.

From April 3, paying for parking by phone will switch to a new service - RingGo.

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

RingGo can be downloaded or drivers can go online to to pay, however, a charge of 20p is added each time you use the service.

The council claim that by using RingGo drivers won’t have to save up change, hang around in the rain or cold, trek to and from the machine, or put a ticket on the dashboard

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