LIMERICK City and County Council has rolled out a new “one stop shop” which, it says, will make it easier for motorists to pay for parking.
Limerick e-Parking, which has been developed by Limerick-based Parkmagic, will allow users to pay for on-street parking by phoning (061) 303093 or by using a free smartphone app.
Similar to the current Parkmagic system, motorists will be able to pay for on-street parking for between 30 minutes and two hours. The system can also be used in Newcastle West, Kilmallock and Rathkeale.
While parking discs will still be available to buy and use, the local authority is hoping to phase them out over time.
A new website, www.limerickparking.ie, has also been launched which will allow users to see the locations of both on-street and off-street parking.
It will also show in real-time how many spaces are available at multi-story car parks across the city.
“The message we want to get out is that there is lots of qualtity good-value parking in Limerick and this is going to make it easier to avail of that – both on and off-street,” said Rory McDermott who has responsibility for traffic management at Limerick City and County Council.
