People encouraged to pay by app to get the most out of parking in Wiltshire

People who have access to a smartphone and wish to use digital payments are being encouraged to pay via the MiPermit app when they visit a Wiltshire Council pay and display car park to save time and effort, and access exclusive app features.

The council still accepts cash payments in its car parks for people who wish to pay with coins, but for many people, payment using the MiPermit app is quicker and easier – and there is no extra charge.

Anyone who opts to use the MiPermit app can benefit from additional features, including extending your stay from the app without returning to the car park, and the ability to book stays over multiple days and purchase season tickets.

Cllr Caroline Thomas, Cabinet Member for Transport, said, “Paying via the app is quick, convenient and secure. I hope people will take advantage of these features to manage parking on the go so they can make the most of their time out and about.

“Of course, we know that many people prefer to use cash to pay for parking, and we’ll continue to support coins as a payment method in our car parks. People can also pay by text message if they wish. However, for many people, the app is the easiest and quickest way to pay, and that’s why we offer a range of payment options in our car parks.”

Parking tariffs are the same whether people use the app, pay and display machines or pay by text message.
