Aberdeen City Council is launching cashless payment systems throughout the city, according to the Scotsman (view press release). Motorists can pay for parking using their mobile phones, a system which has been in place in selected car parks for a year. A spokesperson explained: “More than 40,000 transactions have been made through the PayByPhone System since it was introduced to council car parks last December, with 4,500 people signing up to the service in Aberdeen.”

The council is hoping that the cashless parking system will save money by cutting administrative costs, and make parking more convenient. SmartDebit, a Direct Debit collections service, has noted an increase in automated and electronic transactions in response to the new systems.
