Cashless Parking

Over 18 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.

Digital Permits

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.
