Bay suspension

Parking suspensions apply 24 hours per day and seven days per week. Please check for a notice when you park.

A vehicle parked in a suspended bay is likely to receive a parking ticket and could be removed, even if you have paid to park.

Conditions of use

  • You must purchase and then clearly display, a payment ticket or pay using your mobile phone, when you first park
  • You must park your vehicle fully within a single bay
  • You must not transfer payment tickets between vehicles
  • You must not park and display multiple pay and display tickets even if you have paid by mobile phone
  • You must not park beyond the maximum time shown on the machine
  • You must not return to any bay within the same parking place within 1 hour of the expiry paid for time
  • You must not park on suspended parking bays (check for additional notices at the time of parking)

Payment machine out of order

If a payment machine displays an out of order message or fails to issue a ticket you must buy a ticket from another machine or use the RingGo app. You can reclaim money lost in a payment machine by either writing to the address as shown on the machine or by emailing parking.team@cityoflondon.gov.uk
