Verrus PayByPhone extends to On-Street in Cheltenham
Verrus PayByPhone has been awarded the contract to trial their system to on-street users in Cheltenham. The take up has been excellent over the first 4 weeks of the contract where the main zones of the town have been converted to PayByPhone.
Verrus PayByPhone have been successfully operating the off street portfolio for Cheltenham since June 2006 and following customer feedback it was agreed to extend to 8 key locations in and around the council offices and main shopping areas.
Cheltenham Borough Council’s Parking Manager Jason Benjamin states “Cheltenham’s loyal customers were keen to see Verrus PayByPhone extend into the busy on-street environment. As a proactive council we worked with our partner to ensure this happened before the Xmas period and aligned to the countywide initiative we are delighted with the results”
Councillor John Morris, cabinet member for built environment, adds "The extension of this council initiative will I am sure be welcomed by the people of Cheltenham to assist them in this busy Christmas shopping time, "when we never have the right change for the meter". This is part of the councils plan to help keep Cheltenham up there as one of the best places to shop in the South West."
Verrus’ Business Development Manager Todd Sothcott adds “at Verrus we pride ourselves in having healthy working relationship with our clients; so much more can be achieved when both pull together. The Cheltenham off-street contract has always been one of our success stories so we were very confident that take up would be high when extending to these very busy and vibrant on-street locations”
