Drivers in Manchester can now park more quickly and easily with upgrade to PayByPhone car parking app



Manchester sees rollout of new upgrade to PayByPhone car parking app

It's good news for drivers and visitors to Manchester as PayByPhone, the world’s most popular parking app, rolls out a new upgrade of the app.

The new upgrade allows drivers to pay for their parking session without the need to create an account making it quicker and easier for first time users. 

The app was first rolled out in Manchester back in 2011 and now gains an average of 5,000 first-time users in the city each month. PayByPhone is also currently available in more than 200 on-street locations and over 150 car parks in Manchester.

A new single screen registration process as well as a ‘favourite spot’ option means drivers can now park and pay in less than 30 seconds (...much quicker than fumbling around for change...) from finding a space.

It also enables drivers to extend their parking session from anywhere if they underestimate the length of their stay which reduces the risk of getting a parking ticket - which is great news for those people who like to dwell in coffee shops or in shops around the city. 

"This upgrade will encourage more people to use our app in Manchester and play a role in attracting more people to the city who will stay for longer."
Kevin Bird Commercial Director, PayByPhone UK



Kevin Bird, commercial director of PayByPhone UK, said:

“This upgrade will encourage more people to use our app in Manchester and play a role in attracting more people to the city who will stay for longer. The benefits of cashless parking provide a win for the local economy, a win for us as a business and a win for drivers.

“We’ve worked closely with our clients in Manchester to ensure that these updates are ready in time for the Christmas increase in traffic to the city and we’re certain businesses and visitors to the city will see the benefits.

“Cashless parking is convenient for drivers and proven to create significant cost savings for councils and car park owners because of the reduced cost of maintaining a traditional ticket machine.”

PayByPhone will be  giving away a series of prizes to people who refer the app to a friend or family member as well as giving away spot prizes for those who park with PayByPhone on certain days in December. To download PayByPhone, visit the iOS App Store or the Google Play Store. See www.paybyphone.co.uk
