BOATERS are again able to use credit cards instead of cash when parking at boat ramps across the Mornington Peninsula.
Mornington Peninsula mayor Cr Graham Pittock said the ParkMobile introduced last summer was being used by a “significant number of boat ramp users”. The old coin-operated machines will be phased out this month.
Those using the system can set up an account at parkmobile.com.au or call 1300 564 564. They can download the free smart device application at iTunes, Google Play or Windows markets.
The voice asks for a car registration number and credit card details. An introductory rate for the Parkmobile daily fee is $11.
Those without credit cards, or infrequent users of boat ramps, can buy vouchers for $12 at any of the shire’s customer service centres during business hours.
Vouchers are one-use only and do not have expiry dates. Boaters can buy a few and use them when they want by adding their details onto the vouchers and displaying them on dashboards.
Shire officers will visit boat ramps at peak periods to answer any questions.
Regular boat ramp users can buy annual passes for $125.
