FIRST Capital Connect (FCC) customers will be able to pay for their car parking by mobile phone from this week.

The train operator introduced the new park-and-pay-by-phone scheme at the car parks at St Albans City, Harpenden and Radlett Stations to make parking more convenient.

Passengers must make a payment within half-an-hour of parking by calling an automated voice system or sending a text message.

They can pay for up to 31 days parking, can opt to extend the duration of their permit and can choose to receive a text warning them when their ticket is about to expire.

The current ticket machines will still be available to pay for parking.

Karen Boswell, customer services director, said: "Many of us have been in the position where we are frantically searching for the right change at a car-parking ticket machine when the train is due. Park-and-pay means you can board the train and then pay from your mobile phone."
