Having written here recently about FGW dropping the RingGo service from their car parks I was delighted this week to find RingGo available in Eastleigh in a council car park and at Portsmouth in an NCP. Excellent news on days when I had no change.
Nice to know that some folks are not as short sighted as First Great Western when it comes to making life easy for people.
I hear that First Great Western and APCOA are ceasing the RingGo service at Swindon (and other) station car parks any day now.
This is a stupid move and I am supporting the campaign to have the decision reversed. If you are with me click on this link to make your protest heard.
Car park machines are a nightmare at somewhere like a railway station. You either need a mountain of change or, if they have a credit card operated one, the patience of a saint as they rarely work. RingGo makes life easy with a simple phone call and, when its a business trip, I can log on later and get a VAT receipt.
All stress free and one of the main reasons why I have started to use the train much more over the last year or so. I want my RingGo back!
