RingGo Phone Parking Payments

RingGo is a quick, easy to use mobile phone service, which lets you pay for your parking with a credit or debit card, rather than using cash at a machine.  When you park your car in an area featuring the RingGo service, you simply call the number shown on the machines and pay for your parking over the phone. 

With RingGo:

  • You no longer need to carry change
  • You don’t have to visit a parking machine and
  • You don’t need to walk back with a parking ticket – Civil Enforcement Officers check      which vehicles are parked with RingGo via their handheld units.

How do I register with RingGo?

You can pre-register with RingGo at 

www.MyRingGo.com/register

Alternatively you can register when you want to park.  The national RingGo number, which will work at any RingGo site, is shown on the signs on machines:  0203 046 0010.

ENJOY YOUR DAY IN MARGATE.
