Auckland Transport: Give us your number......

Give us your number......

New look pay and display machines which will ask drivers for their registration number will be installed next week in the first step towards a pay-by-plate parking system.

Three machines have already been installed in the newly developed Jellicoe Street carpark with eight more being fitted in Takapuna next week and four on Waiheke Island. The new look machines will operate in exactly the same way as the existing ones but drivers will also be required to enter their registration details.

Takapuna was chosen as one of the first areas for installation due to the number of existing machines that have been vandalised. The units at Matiatia Wharf on Waiheke Island need to be replaced due to general wear and tear.

Because the new machines will record registration details, lost tickets will be easier to verify. Having the registration number recorded on the parking receipt, will enable all types of vehicles, including motorcycles, to park in a pay and display area that is serviced by these new machines.

The units have the facility to eventually operate without the need for paper tickets. Drivers will be able to pay parking charges simply by inputting their registration number upon entry and exit. The technology to support a new pay-by-plate parking system is currently being developed by Auckland Transport.

The new machines will be automatically scheduled for a service and will be able to communicate any additional maintenance requirements.
