Manchester City Council has installed 242 Flowbird Strada Transfer on-street parking terminals to replace older machines that had come to the end of their useful working lives.

The new solar-powered terminals give customers a wider range of payment options – including coin, debit/credit card and contactless – to make parking in the city centre and suburbs as convenient as possible.

‘The decision to expand payment options to include contactless will enhance the customer experience, because more and more people are choosing this payment method for its convenience,’ said Kenny Scouller, senior sales manager at Flowbird.
