Athlone Towncentre car park goes ticketless with easytrip parking.
Mobility solutions specialist, easytrip, Ireland’s only electronic parking and tolling tag provider, has added the Athlone Towncentre Euro Car Park to its parking service portfolio, providing a ticketless parking solution for visitors to the centre.
How easytrip parking works.
The easytrip parking service offers cashless and hassle-free parking to customers with the use of an electric tag, with no need to take a ticket or queue at the paying station. The easytrip tag is scanned on entry and exit to the car park and the fee is then automatically deducted from the tag holder’s account.
Commenting on the announcement, CEO of easytrip Ireland, Colin Delaney said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Athlone Towncentre to provide a new convenient and safe way to park. As a parking payment solution, using the easytrip tag can advance hygiene standards as it limits touchpoints with no need to take a ticket, handle cash or touch a button. It’s also easy to use and stress-free, allowing motorists to simply drive in and out with no need to take a ticket or queue at the pay station – ideal for customers as peak Christmas shopping season gets into full swing.”
Gary Quigley, Site Manager, Euro Car Park at Athlone Towncentre said: “Partnering with easytrip has allowed us to advance our safety measures at the centre by limiting the need to tap or carry cash to pay for parking. We are always looking for new ways to advance our customers experience and we are excited to be working with Colin and the team to bring this new way of paying for parking to visitors at our centre.”
