On Street Parking

Cashless Parking

From the 8 June 2015 motorists will be able to use a new mobile phone service to pay for on - road parking in Glasgow.

RingGo allows motorists to pay using their credit or debit cards without the need for displaying a ticket on their dashboard.

This service will be rolled out across 1,060 machines across the City over the next few weeks.

How do I register with RingGo?

You can pre-register with RingGo either by using the RingGo smartphone apps (downloadable free of charge either through your handset or from the relevant store) or on the internet at www.myRingGo.co.uk/register

If you pre-register for the service you will be asked to provide:

  • The number plate, colour and make of your vehicle
  • Your payment card details

Alternatively you can register at the same time you want to park, either by using the RingGo apps or by calling the RingGo number which is 0141 530 3303.

Free Parking Bays

In some areas of Glasgow there is free on street parking where the length of stay and/or return is limited.


Pay & Display

Charges and maximum stay times vary according to the zone so the signs and/or ticket machines should be referred to.

Payment for parking MUST be made at the time you park your vehicle. Outside the times of controlled parking you may park without payment in Pay & Display bays.

Charges are applied on all public holidays except Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

Motorists are advised to carry a supply of coins as the ticket machines generally take 20p, 50p, £1 and £2 coins.
