PayByPhone, the global leader in mobile parking payments, continues to expand its presence across the UK, with 14 new clients signing up for its cashless parking payments services in the last six months.

Adam Dolphin, Sales Director for PayByPhone UK, says, “COVID has played a part in motivating clients who are new to cashless parking to sign up for our services. Local authorities want to offer their residents and visitors a safe and secure option to pay for their parking sessions, which doesn’t involve handling cash or queuing at parking machines. We’ve also had new clients who have switched from different providers. This confirms that the high levels of service and wide range of products we offer, including our green initiatives like Meters for Trees, are appealing to parking operators and councils who are looking to improve drivers’ experiences whilst also improving local air quality.”

Bradgate Park in Leicestershire, Cannock Chase District Council, East Dunbartonshire Council, Eden District Council, Hambleton District Council, Moray Council, North York Moors National Park, Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority, Pembrokeshire County Council, the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, the University of Manchester and Waterloo Hotel and Lodge in Betws-y-Coed, Wales all launched cashless parking payment services for the first time. Barking and Dagenham Council and Transport for Wales both switched to PayByPhone from existing providers.

The University of Exeter, Newcastle County Council and Barking and Dagenham Council also signed up for PayByPhone’s award-winning environmental programme, Meters for Trees, from November 2020. Meters for Trees is the UK’s first carbon footprint reduction initiative of its kind. Open to all UK local authorities using PayByPhone’s service, Meters for Trees helps councils reach their environmental goals. Councils agree to reduce the number of parking machines in favour of PayByPhone’s cashless parking payment technology. For every 10 parking machines in a council’s estate, PayByPhone offsets one tonne of carbon dioxide through Portel-Pará REDD, a Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) audited project in the Amazon rainforest that combats deforestation and donates one tree to the borough.
