Derbion to stop taking cash payments for car parking
The parking lots at Derby’s largest shopping center are 100% cashless, which means visitors will have to pay for their parking by card.
The new system was introduced in all four car parks of Derbion, formerly Intu Derby, in recent weeks after non-essential stores reopened on April 12.
To give customers time to get used to the new system, the city’s level 1 shopping center customer service will accept cash payments for parking until June 14. But after this date, all parking payments will be made by card only.
Bosses say the system was introduced as an additional Covid-19 security measure to minimize touchpoints as the center becomes busier before restaurants and leisure facilities like Showcase Cinema reopen next week. Luxurious.
Adam Tamsett, Managing Director of Derbion, said: “We can confirm that we are in the process of installing a new cashless and ticketless system that will improve the experience of visitors when they park at Derbion.
“We took a contactless approach to minimize touchpoints and it is already the preferred payment method for the majority of buyers, so it made sense to implement a new system when the center reopened.
“We look forward to delivering the new system fully on time.”
A spokesperson for Derbion said: “Our four car parks in Derbion are now cashless.
“As an interim measure, our customer service will accept cash payments for parking, to give customers time to get used to the new system.
“This process will be in place until June 14, but after that date all parking payments will be made by card only.”
