Paying for parking
54 of our 56 pay and display machines take credit/debit card payments.
All of our car park machines accept cash.
All of our car parks - except for Lincoln Central - operate a pay by phone service.
The pay and display machines rely on a mobile phone signal to process payments. If a payment fails it is not likely to be a fault with the machine. It may be due to lack of available signal at that time, if this happens you may wish to try to repeat your payment.
