Pay for parking by mobile phone

You can pay for parking in the Royal Borough of Greenwich by credit or debit card using your mobile phone. This is known as cashless parking. 

The service is available at all on-street parking locations in the borough where parking is payable in Controlled Parking Zones and council-run car parks. 

You do not need to display a ticket in your car if you pay using your mobile phone. The devices used by parking enforcement officers are updated to show that you’ve paid to park your vehicle and the length of your parking session. 

You can still pay by cash if you want to.
