Parking By Phone 

Pay-by-mobile now available in Swindon town centre
 
The days of fumbling for change as you park your car in Swindon town centre are over - if you're happy to pay by mobile phone.
 
A new scheme started on 01 November that allows motorists to avoid the rigmarole of feeding coins into a ticket machine and instead text their registration number using their mobile.

The cost of convenience is 20p on top of the usual car parking fee - 1 per hour or 2 for 4 hours - and also allows the opportunity to 'top-up' for more time without returning to your car.
 
Users can also visit pay via a smartphone website or call instead of texting.
 
Local traffic wardens have now been supplied with hand-held devices which notifies them with the details of vehicles just seconds after they have paid for by the new mobile method.
 
Business users can also log-on to a website to print out receipts.
