Paying for parking just got easier in Fife

RingGo is coming soon
Fife Council is launching cashless car parking in charging council car parks and on-street parking from Wednesday 1 March 2017.
Motorists using Fife Council parking will no longer have to hunt for change as RingGo cashless parking is now offered as an alternative to pay and display parking with coins. RingGo is a quick, easy to use mobile phone service, enabling you to pay for your parking by credit or debit card, rather than with cash at a machine. Parking attendants check which vehicles have paid using an internet connected handheld device.
Cllr John Wincott, executive spokesperson for environment and transportation said: “We’re continuing to invest in our town centres, making them attractive to local residents, town centre workers and shoppers.
“Cashless parking is a convenient way for drivers to pay for parking and it has already been introduced successfully in other parts of the country.
“People can spend more time in our town centres if they do not need to rush back to their vehicle and it’s easy to add extra time to your parking through the RingGo app.
“I encourage motorists to register with RingGo now, so that they will be ready when it arrives in Fife.”
If you have an iPhone, an Android, Blackberry 10 or Windows mobile phone, you can download and use the RingGo app to register and pay for your parking. Or call the standard rate telephone number 020 3046 0060 (shown on signs) at the time you want to park. If you want to save time, you can pre-register in advance either through the apps or at www.RingGo.co.uk.

You can pre-register in advance for the service either by downloading the RingGo app or at www.RingGo.co.uk. There is a RingGo app available for iPhone, Android, Blackberry 10 or Windows mobile phones and the service is free to download.
As well as being convenient, paying with RingGo reduces the risk of receiving a parking charge notice. If you’re running late or simply want to stay a little longer, there’s no need to worry - just top up your parking wherever you are by using the service again. The optional RingGo text reminders also help. These notify you 10 minutes before your parking time is due to run out, leaving you time to either extend your stay or return to your car (10p per reminder).
This will operate alongside the existing cash collection system. Paying by the RingGo app will be available at the council’s charging car parks and on-street parking in Anstruther, Cupar, Dunfermline, Inverkeithing, Kirkcaldy and St Andrews.
