Parking in Newham

Pay for parking by phone

What is PayByPhone?

PayByPhone is a quick and secure way to pay for parking. Instead of finding the right change for a pay and display machine, you can simply use your mobile phone to pay, and the parking fee is charged to your credit or debit card.

You can also use PayByPhone to pay for season tickets at car parks that offer this service. More details are available at each location.

With PayByPhone you can choose to receive reminder texts so that you know when your parking session is about to end and you can extend your session without having to go back to put more money into a parking machine.

If you don’t have a phone, you can also pay for parking at 150 Pay Point locations, find a location near you on the Pay Point website
