JustPark Takes Over Cashless Parking

Drivers who use on-street parking across Northern Ireland are advised that the cashless parking service provider has changed.

JustPark took over the service in Belfast, Lisburn and Newry from previous provider Parkmobile earlier this month, in a move hoped to half the transaction fee for each parking session.

The remotely operated service allows drivers to pay for their car parking from the inside of the car, either via the JustPark app or by phone.

The service will go live across the rest of Northern Ireland over the next ten days. Customers will no longer have the option to pay via Parkmobile from Thursday 16 January.

Those wishing to use the new service will need to register their vehicle and method of payment details with JustPark or download the app. Once registered, they can pay for and manage parking using a mobile device.

The switchover will benefit customers by reducing the cost of the transaction fee from 15 pence per parking session to eight pence, according to the Department for Infrastructure.

JustPark will charge customers per session and also operates a 'start/stop' option that allows drivers to pay for their exact session without any need to estimate times.

For those who don't want to use the app, there will still be a pay with cash option available at each location.

Further information about JustPark's services is available online.
