will implement a ticketless parking solution at CitiPark’s 140-capacity carpark adjacent to Rickmansworth railway station, in Hertfordshire. The barrier-less product is intended to provide commuters using the station with a more flexible payment option.
Pete Brown, managing director at APT Skidata, says: “The ticketless system reduces both expenditure and maintenance requirements for operators, as well as helping to prevent fraud.”
The system uses automatic number plate recognition technology. Users can pay via credit and debit cards at a touch-screen pay station, through the CitiPark mobile app or on the website.
APT Skidata’s INS software will identify commuters who fail to pay and a daily report will be sent to CitiPark. The car park will feature CCTV cameras, which are monitored from CitiPark’s national control room in Leeds.
