The new equipment for Marygate has apparently has cost £100,000.
The reliability record of this type of system is also patchy
There are some big questions to be answered about value for money with residents discount Minster Badges now costing £20. .
Apparently the facility to pay by charge/credit card (or phone) will be withdrawn. Not clear whether it is a “no change given” machine. Assume it will accept notes!!
NB. Will charges apply in the evening? How will badge holders exit without paying?
