New Buncrana eParking Service 09.06.20

DONEGAL County Council traffic wardens returned to work on the 18th of May as part of Phase 1 of the easing of COVID-19 restrictions.
For a transition period from the 18th of May to this weekend enforcement of Pay and Display offences remained suspended and traffic wardens have concentrated on the enforcement of road traffic offences i.e. illegal parking on disabled bays, double yellow lines, loading bays and on footpaths.
This transition period is now being extended until Monday the 22nd of June to ensure that the new eParking Service will be in place when enforcement resumes.

Donegal County Council are currently finalising arrangements for the new eParking Service, which will provide cashless methods to pay for parking via a smartphone app and website. The eParking Service will operate in each of the five towns in Donegal that currently have pay and display in operation – Ballybofey, Buncrana, Bundoran, Donegal Town and Letterkenny. When launched on the 22nd of June, it can be used on any of the streets and car parks where pay and display parking operates.
Director of Service for Roads and Transportation, John Mc Laughlin emphasised that the new service is an additional, more convenient way of paying for parking. If any shoppers and visitors are more comfortable with the existing Pay and Display machines, they can, of course, continue to use them. “We would like people to try out the new eParking Service. We think that they will find it a very quick, modern and convenient way of paying for their parking and very easy to use."
The new App will be available to download for free via the Apple Store and Google Play.
More details are available on www.donegalparking.ie and https://bookings.parkmagic.net .
From the 22nd of June the Traffic Wardens will return to normal duties, including the enforcement of both Pay and Display offences and road traffic offences.
