Get a ticket to park (both free and paid)

If you're paying by cash, you need to collect a ticket from the parking machine.

If you're using RingGo you need to register a virtual ticket, regardless of how long you are going to park there. Otherwise, you may be liable for a parking fine.

Changing to another car park or on-street parking space after 1 hour is not allowed. You can only receive 1 hour free parking at 1 car park or on-street parking space per day.

When you have parked

If using a parking machine:

  • go to the ticket machine
  • enter your registration
  • pay for the length of time you will be parked there (if it's more than 1 hour)
  • press the button for a ticket 
  • display your parking ticket visibly inside your car so the parking attendant can see it.

If using RingGo

  • if you're parking for less than 1 hour, you must register it on RingGo
  • if you're parking for more than 1 hour, pay for a virtual ticket using RingGo.

You do not need to display a RingGo ticket, as our wardens will be able to check your registration and your virtual ticket on their handheld devices.

Parking is free on Sundays in all council car parks and on-street parking spaces, unless there are restrictions clearly marked.

Parking is also free on Saturdays in on-street parking spaces in Zones 3 and 4, (East End of Paisley and Opposite Royal Alexandra Hospital).
