Mobile phone parking payments

About RingGo

RingGo is a quick, easy way to pay to park by phone, which means there’s no need to save up change or visit a machine. Using RingGo helps from an environmental point of view, too, as there’s no need to put a pay and display ticket in your windscreen.  

How does RingGo work?

The simplest way to use RingGo is via the RingGo smartphone app.

You can download this by going to your phone’s app store and searching for RingGo. Once you’ve downloaded the app, register a few details and when you want to park, use the app to pay.

To do this, you need to:

  • confirm the vehicle you’re using
  • let the service know where you are parked by entering the location number shown on the local sign
  • tell RingGo how long you want to stay and confirm your payment details

A further benefit of RingGo is that if your parking is running out, you can extend your time wherever you are. Select your current session from within the app and you will be asked how long you want to extend for.  Choose a time, confirm, and the new, extended time will apply.

Parking enforcement officers know you’re parked with RingGo by checking the vehicle registration on their devices, so there’s no need to display anything in your windscreen.

What are the benefits of using RingGo?

  • Touch free parking without visiting a machine.
  • No more searching for or saving up coins.
  • Extend your parking wherever you are.
  • Optional text receipts and reminders confirm your parking and remind you when your parking is running out, helping you avoid a penalty charge notice. 
  • Avoid the rain and cold - you can pay for your parking from the comfort of your car or on the way to where you’re going.

Where can RingGo be used?

Once you’ve downloaded the RingGo smartphone app and registered to use the service, you can use RingGo in thousands of areas nationwide, as well as all charged parking locations across North Tyneside.
