25 more car parking machines in Pembrokeshire accepting card payments

MORE car parking machines in Pembrokeshire car parks can now accept card payments.

Another 25 machines are being upgraded/converted to accept payment by card with new machines also installed across the county.

The additional car parks where new machines are being installed are Milford Haven Robert Street and Market Square; Pembroke South Quay and Long Entry; Pembroke Dock, Lower Meyrick Street, Haverfordwest multi-storey, Newport Long Street, Fishguard West Street and Parc y Shwt and Goodwick Station Hill.

Pembrokeshire County Council is also currently working on a pay by phone and pay by app solution for parking in the county.

More details are expected in the coming weeks.

Cllr Phil Baker, the Cabinet Member for Infrastructure, said that during the pandemic more and more people are asking that we move away from cash so the Council is continuing to upgrade Pay and Display machines to accept cashless options.

He added:

“Customers have been requesting cashless options to pay for parking and the provision for cashless at the machine or pay by phone will further add to the flexibility of payment options available.”
