Dorchester RingGo Parking UpdateWednesday, February 3rd, 2010
The RingGo Parking system kicked off to a great start before Christmas and with new users registering every week its use is rising.
Dorset County Council have announced that RingGo is also to be made available on the street meters as well from Monday of this week.
This is excellent news as they have agreed to the BID’s request to allow remote ‘top up’ for the street meters (like in the car parks) and they have also agreed to make the 10p text alert free. There is still a 20p convenience charge but for an hour or mores parking this is good insurance against a £25 or £50 fine.
This means that there is now even a bigger incentive for you to register with RingGo – RingGo users will have the added flexibility of getting the 10 minute warning text, and you will be able to top up their parking remotely by phone even when using the street meters.
No More: fumbling for coins, using shops as change machines, mad dashes to get back to your car before an over-keen attendant writes you a ticket.
Much more: relaxed visits to town, time to explore the town.
