RingGo, the leading UK cashless parking provider, has launched RingGo AutoPay to bill drivers automatically for parking using number plate recognition tech.

As part of a new partnership with parking lot provider Q-Park, the automatic number plate recognition tech should provide a “frictionless” solution for drivers when entering barrier-controlled car parks. 

The first phase of deployment is taking place at selected facilities in Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool, London, and Manchester.

“Q-Park share our vision for the future of mobility and see the potential in combining services to provide motorists with the smartest, simplest way to get from point A to point B. Despite this, there has always been a disconnect between the on- and off-street parking market segments. But we are hoping to change that,” says Peter O’ Driscoll, Managing Director at RingGo.

“Collaborating with Q-Park on this widescale digitalisation project for off-street parking is a landmark moment for us. The future of parking involves automated services, and we are setting a bold precedent by combining our expertise to make that happen. AutoPay is a scalable solution, that can fit the needs of parking operators of any size and will potentially affect millions of drivers as it grows in the coming months and years.”

Q-Park’s parking management system will be combined with the automatic number plate recognition tech to allow drivers to completely bypass pay-and-display machines. This should mean that you get charged for exactly how long you’ve parked in a particular spot, and won’t have to worry about rushing back to buy another ticket or avoid a parking fine for staying slightly too long.
