Parkmobile allows registered users to pay their parking fees either via a phone call or through a downloadable smartphone app, meaning they no longer need to display a parking ticket.
It is already offered by the Royal Borough at Stafferton Way car park in Maidenhead and River Street car park in Windsor, and following a successful pilot in these locations the decision was taken to roll it out to all council-operated car parks and to on-street parking from Monday, April 15.
Parkmobile is also used by other local authorities including Oxford City Council and the London Borough of Richmond.
The apps are available for iPhone, Android, BlackBerry and Windows handsets.
Visit www.parkmobile.co.uk for details.
