    2. Pay & display machines in our car parks (daily tickets)*
    3. Blue ticket machines at our stations (the ones that sell train tickets). Daily, weekly and overnight parking tickets.
    4. Station ticket offices (daily, weekly, monthly, and longer tickets)

    * Except at Beaconsfield, Oxford Parkway & Warwick Parkway.

    Different arrangements are in place at Oxford Parkway station.  Further information is available here.

  • Must I display a car parking ticket in my car?

    Yes Pay & Display tickets must be displayed in your car unless :

    • if you pay using the RingGo serivice, no ticket needs to be displayed.
    • If you park at Beaconsfield, Oxford Parkway or Warwick Parkway, ANPR ( Automatic Number Plate Recognition) systems are in use.  This means that your registration number is recorded when you buy your car park ticket, so there is no need to display it in your car. 
  • What happens if I do not have enough time to purchase a car parking ticket when I arrive at a station?

    We advise you use RingGo in this situation as you can pay for your parking over the phone on the train. Payment should be made as soon as possible and always within 30 minutes of leaving your vehicle unattended.

  • What is your car sharing policy?

    We offer free parking when three or more people share a car and arrive at our stations Mondays - Fridays between 06:00 and 09:00. Just ask the attendant (if available) or staff at the station ticket office for your 3 For Free Car Share voucher when driving into the car park.

  • What is RingGo?

    RingGo is a cashless parking solution that saves you time and effort when parking your car. Instead of using a parking meter, you simply pay for parking with your mobile phone.  You can register on-line for the service (LINK) or during your first call to RingGo:

    Call 01753 202 0000 to use the service. If you are a new caller, it will ask for:

    • Your vehicle’s registration, make and colour
    • The location where you are parked (location code)
    • How long you want to park for
    • Your debit or credit card details

    Once you have registered with RingGo, it remembers you on subsequent visits and simply asks you to confirm:

    • The vehicle that you want to park
    • Its location (location code)
    • How long you want to park for
    • Your card security code

    RingGo costs 20p on top of the standard car park fee for the time and day you are parking and an extra 20p on top of this if you require text confirmation.

  • Is a ticket required for RingGo?

    No, the parking attendant simply looks up your number plate on his handheld device which will let them know if the parking fee has been paid.

  • What is the RingGo code for my station?

    You can view the RingGo codes for our stations here.
