Aberdeen City Council has changed the way it charges motorists for parking overnight, signalling the end for tired and broken meters across the city from today.
The local authority has brought back the Paybyphone app to replace Ringo, which adds a 10p convenience fee on top of the parking charge.
It means there will no longer be a difference between cashless parking costs and paying at the traditional meter.
Last financial year around a million cashless parking transactions were carried out in Aberdeen.
Paybyphone was the first cashless parking app used by the council when it introduced the service in 2012.
Broken meters across the city, for which the council is struggling to find parts, will be removed as part of the new deal – as the firm offers a “meters for trees” scheme.
The city will receive 65 trees and funding to offset 65 tonnes of carbon dioxide as a result.
