PASSENGERS using Royston railway station are now able to pay for car parking using a mobile phone.

Train operator First Capital Connect has launched the Park & Pay by Phone scheme at Royston, Ashwell and Morden, and Meldreth.

The scheme has been launched after a trial period

Karen Boswell, First Capital Connect customer services director, said: "Many of us have been in the position when you are frantically searching for the right change at a parking ticket machine and you can see your train approaching.

"Park & Pay means you can board that train and then pay from your mobile phone.

"It is just one of the flexible payment methods we have put in place to make it easier for our customers when using our stations and car parks," she said.

The system allows customers to use the automated voice system or send a text message to pay for up to 31 days of parking by simply calling or sending a text message from a mobile phone within 30 minutes of parking their vehicle.

Promotional leaflets and posters setting out all the options for payment for car parking are being distributed and displayed at stations.
