By making parking quicker and easier RingGo helps towns and cities across the UK become cleaner, healthier, more liveable places to be.
Over 19 million UK motorists trust RingGo to process their cashless parking payments quickly and securely. Available via app, website, IVR and text message we provide a seamless digital experience to get customers parked quickly and effortlessly. In addition our apps provide predictive availability, text reminders, navigation and online receipt information.
RingGo Digital Permits are an online alternative to paper-based permits and scratch cards and can be fully customised to your organisational requirements. You can offer resident parking, visitor permits, seasonal discounts for holiday makers and shoppers, employee discounts or premium parking for pre-authorised ticket holders.
Emissions Based Parking
Emissions Based Parking is an award-winning service developed by RingGo which links parking charges to the emissions of the vehicle being parked. With EBP, someone using a more environmentally-friendly vehicle will be charged less for their parking. Those with higher emissions pay more. In March 2010 the service won the British Parking Environment Award and now operates in multiple London Boroughs.
RingGo Dispensations are the labour-saving way to let vehicles park in restricted waiting areas. They’re quick and easy online solutions for building works, house removals, road works, traders and any number of other ad hoc parking requirements. Motorists apply and manage their dispensations directly within the RingGo online portal.
Kiosk & Touchscreens
RingGo Touchscreen and Kiosk solutions can be deployed at a range of locations including leisure centres, railways, hotels, cinemas, surgeries, libraries or museums and allow businesses to offer free or discounted parking to customers whilst other motorists continue to pay the full fee using their usual RingGo account.
Smart City Hub
The RingGo Urban Mobility Control Hub manages the total digitisation of parking, combining multiple cashless apps, parking machines, permits and enforcement data, all via a unified on-demand dashboard. This gives local authorities the ability to manage the movement of vehicles to help make cities cleaner, healthier and more liveable.
ANPR assisted solutions
RingGo can be integrated with other payment methods and existing ANPR solutions to provide much more efficient enforcement, allowing you to quickly and easily detect which motorists have paid versus those that haven’t. Perfect for railway stations, commuter parking locations and travel hubs and airports.
Intelligent dashboards and data insights
The ultimate dashboard for your parking operations. All the stats, graphs and real time updates at your fingertips allowing parking managers to take back control of the parking landscape to influence mobility planning and implementations.
Park & Ride
RingGo can easily be integrated into city-wide Park & Ride locations as an alternative to cash. Motorists use their app to pay and receive an automated confirmation ‘e-ticket’ which can then be used as proof of purchase for the bus journey. Secure payments on the go and at the tap of a button!
Specialised tariffs and season tickets
Season tickets, event parking, rover tickets, seasonal promotions and variable tariffs can all be managed and implemented with the RingGo smart parking solution.
British Parking Awards 2021
RingGo scooped two gongs at the 2021 British Parking Awards. The first was in partnership with the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham for helping deliver their SW6 traffic, congestion and pollution scheme. The second award was presented for our positive response to the Covid-19 pandemic and outstanding level of support throughout.
International Parking Community Award 2021
RingGo won the 2021 IPC Award for outstanding response during Covid-19. The judges commended RingGo’s “outside the box” thinking in negotiating an unprecedented global health, economic, and social crisis, whilst also highlighting our flexibility and admirable level of service to both motorists and parking operators during the pandemic.
European Parking Award 2019
RingGo won the prestigious European Parking Award in 2019 in the best on-street project category for their world-leading Emissions Based Parking solution. Emissions Based Parking uses vehicle registrations and DVLA information to automatically vary parking tariffs based on the emissions of the vehicle being parked. The solution reduces vehicle pollution and improves air quality, with none of the complex and costly infrastructure required for low and zero emission zones.

RingGo and partner company, ParkBee, are delighted to have won the Parkex overall Innovation Award for their smart technology solution which enables RingGo cashless parking to open gates and barriers at car parks across the UK.

RingGo’s “Space Availability” solution competed against 90 other worldwide services and solutions to come out top in the Parking Category. The judges said they were particularly “impressed by the predictive algorithm, which tells users what likely availability is upon arrival, even for spaces that do not have sensors”.
British Parking Awards 2012
In 2012, RingGo’s iPhone and Android apps for cashless parking won the first ever British Parking Digital Parking Award. The judges commended the company for their on-going improvements to the apps and promotional programmes which led to a 265% increase in usage.
