Parking payment methods are to change in Huddersfield’s Queensgate multi-storey car park from May.
The car park has operated a Pay on Foot system since 2006.
Pay on Foot requires motorists to take a ticket at the barrier on entering the car park and then pay at the end of their visit. From May 5 the car park will once again become pay and display to enable drivers to choose from a range of methods to pay for their parking.
PayByPhone means people can pay for parking using their phone and charge parking to their credit or debit card. It is available in other Kirklees pay and display car parks and streets but cannot currently be used at Queensgate.
The change to pay and display will mean that visitors to Queensgate can now use PayByPhone, so they never have to worry about having the right change for parking and they can top up their parking without revisiting the car park.
To use PayByPhone people can pre-register prior to their first use of the system at https://paybyphone.co.uk/ or set up an account the first time they want to use it.
Each parking location has its own unique location code and motorists should use the mobile web or download the free PayByPhone app from paybyphone.co.uk or call the number on the side of the parking machine and follow the instructions. The terms and conditions are available on the paybyphone website.
Clr Peter McBride, Kirklees Cabinet member for Place, said: “Changing the system to Pay and Display will make it much easier for visitors to the Queensgate Car Park to use all the payment facilities available to other motorists visiting the town.”
The current tariffs at Queensgate car park will remain unchanged.
