BemroseBooth Mobile, cashless parking provider, has rolled out its "Phone and Pay" service across 37 car parks in South Somerset.
Motorists visiting South Somerset can now simply register their vehicle detail, either online at http://www.phoneandpay.co.uk/ or via telephone.
Smartphone owners can alternatively download the Phone and Pay mobile app, free of charge, on Android Market or App Store. Motorist's previous parking history can also be viewed online or through the smartphone app and VAT receipts can be emailed once a parking session has been paid for.
Nick Kibel, business development director announced: "We are delighted to have been awarded the latest cashless parking contract with South Somerset District Council. Our aim is to ease the stress of paying for parking throughout South Somerset and promote this environmentally friendly alternative to mass ticket printing."
Councillor Henry Hobhouse, portfolio holder for Property and Climate Change said: "I'm very pleased that we are able to facilitate a helpful parking arrangement throughout South Somerset. This should allow our residents and visitors to avoid overstaying and allowing their ticket to expire. I hope that the users of our car parks will find this helpful. Allowing you to park with your mobile phone, by text or by phone call, will enable you to pay your parking before you arrive in the car park, b ereminded when your parking charge is close to expiring and be able to top up a parking session whilst away from your vehicle which is more convenient.”
Where permitted, motorists can top up a parking session from distance to vehicle; opt for SMS reminders when a session is close to expiring and use the 'Find my Vehicle' button to locate vehicles on busy days.
