Chiltern Railways are planning to trial Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology in the car parks at Beaconsfield and Warwick Parkway stations.
The ANPR systems will go live on Monday 11th April 2016.
The new system will enable better management of the car park through improved information on vehicular traffic using the station. It will also offer benefits to users of the car park as it will avoid the necessity to purchase pay and display tickets. Provision will be made for drivers to amend their parking details online.
Once the system goes live the ageing coin only parking machines will be removed from service and payment activities will transfer to the ticket vending machines which are being updated to request vehicle registration details as a part of the payment process.
Car parking tickets will also be available to purchase via the Chiltern Railways mobile phone app.
After the system has finished a bedding-in period feedback from users of the car park will be sought.
