New parking machines offer payment alternatives
New Pay and Display machines will be introduced as from today in a number of locations across Gibraltar.
In a statement the Ministry for Infrastructure and Planning explained that the new machines are in keeping with the recommendations of the Sustainable Traffic, Transport and Parking Plan, and in line with “constantly evolving technology”.
These new machines will be able to accept credit and debit card payments, contactless card transactions together with the traditional cash payment in either Pounds or Euros.
“This will facilitate the operation for users by offering alternative means of payment and will help introduce the concept of cashless payment facilities as commonplace within our jurisdictions,” the Ministry added.
These machines also boast user-friendly colour LCD screens that will guide the user throughout the whole payment operation in three different languages; English, Spanish and French.
These new machines have been placed in Ragged Staff, Romney Hut, Landport Ditch, Line Wall Road and Watergardens.
