Long stay parking charges reduced

Ideal for android or iPhones
Parking prices in certain underused bays have been cut from £5.50 to £3.00 in certain nine hour bays in the Grange.  This is an extension of a previous trial when charges in some nine hour bays were reduced. 

Introduced 5 years ago, the nine hour bays have been largely underused because of the price and because of their location.  The changes mean that for a relatively modest charge the spare capacity can be used - which takes pressure off residents in highly congested areas just outside the controlled zone boundaries.

It is a long awaited and sensible move.  Some of the details can be found in this article and Council details on parking can be found here.

If you have an Android or an iPhone you can pay for parking very conveniently by mobile using the RingGo app which works very well.  Usage since it was introduced in Edinburgh has far exceeded expectations.  For this and other mobile phone payment options see here.
