Torbay Goes Start:Stop with RingGo

From 30th September 2020, phone parking across Torbay Council is changing to RingGo’s Start:Stop service.

Please note that RingGo Start:Stop is a variant of RingGo where motorists use the app or phone line to both start and stop their parking, rather than paying for time in advance.

Motorists using the service must remember to stop their parking before they drive away or they could be charged more.

Bold green and red signs (like the one right) highlight the Torbay parking where RingGo Start:Stop is being offered.

Please note that parking across the rest of Devon uses RingGo’s standard Buy Time (pay in advance) solution and the signage for this is green and blue.

Motorists that currently use Parkmobile and are not already registered with RingGo will need to provide their details to the new service.

You can do this either by downloading the RingGo app the free RingGo app from the App Store or Google Play Store or at This can be done any time in the run up to the transfer.

Alternatively, you can wait until the new service is live and call 01803 221 339 when you want to park.

To offer safer, touch free payments, and encourage greater use of phone parking across Devon, all Councils across the County have removed the convenience fee for phone parking, bringing payments into line with cash*.

RingGo is the UK’s no.1 parking app, serving over 17 million customers nationwide. As well as being able to park and pay across Torbay, motorists can use the RingGo app in thousands of locations nationwide. For a full list of places where RingGo is available across Devon, click here or visit
