PayByPhone for on-street parking now available in Burton

Visitors to Burton now have the option to pay for their parking by mobile phone when they park in on-street spaces in the town. 

Staffordshire County Council has partnered with PayByPhone in the project which will be available at all on-street parking locations across the town. 

Visitors will still be able to use coins to pay for their parking, however being able to pay by phone will make it more convenient and flexible. Furthermore, motorists can also send a text to extend their stay so they don’t have to rush back to their car, allowing them to stay longer in their parking space.

David Williams, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport at Staffordshire County Council said:

“We know the way people use money and how they want to pay for things is changing, which is why we have introduced the option to pay by mobile phone for on-street parking in the town.

“People will still be able to pay for their parking with coins but this provides that extra convenience and flexibility for those who like to pay for things on their phone. We also hope the extra way of paying for parking will encourage more people back out into our high streets and other parts of the town.

“We’re launching the new facility in Burton and hope to roll it out across all our on-street locations across the county later this year.”

Adam Dolphin, Sales Director for PayByPhone UK, says:

“We are thrilled to launch PayByPhone with Staffordshire County Council, helping to make the parking experience as hassle-free as possible for residents and visitors to the area. People have busy lives and our app simplifies things so they can get on with what matters most to them, without having to worry about paying for parking. I would encourage drivers to download the app before setting off - registration takes less than 30 seconds - so that they can make use of the new service immediately.”

PayByPhone users also have access to the app’s other features. These include a Maps feature, which allows drivers to locate parking areas before they leave for their destination and to pin their vehicle location onto the map once they have parked. The Nearby Parking feature also provides drivers with the closest PayByPhone parking location.

Using the same system as other parts of the county will also mean that users will not need to register on separate systems. People can find out more and download the App from the App Store and at Google Play.
