Who else agrees that it is unreasonable, out of all proportion, and downright wrong that Westminster has made it so awkward for people who do not have a mobile phone to pay for motorcycle parking?


This absurd system builds on the arrogant assumtion that everybody has a mobile phone. Westminster has put no workable alternative in place for people who do not have one, other than having a crystal ball to know in advance where they'll park and whether there's space.


During a phone call to Westminster's parking info line, the attendant admitted that people cannot simply pull up and park anymore, and that they'll have "serious difficulties" parking without a mobile phone.


This outrageously stupid and unfair system should be dismantled.

I thought you could use any phone not just a mobile? You do not need to know where you are going to park the charge is a daily one (£1.50) which covers every m/c bay in Westminster, so you could phone from home before you leave. Permits are also available for longer periods to avoid having to ring each day. If you cannot pay by phone you can also park on pay and display or meter bays and pay as a car would.

phone from home - before you even know if there are any available spaces ? and try finding a public phone next to the bays......


I wonder how many bikers ride to Westminster only to find it full and have to turn around and ride straight back home again, lol!? I've heard some lame excuses for not paying but that must be one of the funniest.

didn't know a ticket was valid in any and every bay in Westminster. is that the case ?


Motorcycle parking is permit only with a permit covering the whole of Westminsters m/c bays for a bargain £1.50 a day or other periods such as £20 per month £150 a year. The Council has actually increased the number of bays since they introduced charging they now have 4500 and used some of the money paid to increase security providing secure anchor points so its not ALL bad.

westminster is getting a serious kicking from upset bikers and scooter riders about stealing their free parking. by charging and in the course making £6m illegaly. so if you want pay back check out. No To the Bike Parking Tax - Campaigning to have all parking taxes for motorcycles & scooters abolished.
