South West Trains Offers More Ring and Go Parking
| 15th Feb 2010|
South West Trains is today (15 February) extending the RingGo cashless payment system to ten more station car parks on its network.
The expansion of the service - which allows rail travellers the chance to pay for their car parking by phone - means RingGo is now available at 30 South West Trains' stations.
To use the service, customers turn up and park, then call the number on the nearby signs which takes them through to the RingGo service. Once they have given their vehicle and location details, they pay for their parking by phone, using either a credit or debit card.
Cashless parking has been offered at South West Trains stations since December 2008. The ten new stations that now offer the service are:
South West Trains' project manager Andy Naylor said: "RingGo has proved popular at all the stations that have it installed so far, so we are delighted to expand the service to enable more rail travellers the convenience of paying by phone."
RingGo's Project Manager, Alex Walker said: "The take up of RingGo at existing South West Trains stations has been great. At many of the train stations, more than 30% of rail travellers are using the service instead of cash. Adding these new stations means that even more motorists can now benefit from the service."
